News about the new mouthpieces!

After months of research and study, I am proud to announce that I am now producing mouthpieces from my own designs. I call them the Grabner HiTech Clarinet Mouthpieces. Since the retirement of Hans Zinner, I am the only mouthpiece craftsman to completely redesign and manufacture not one or two mouthpieces, but an entire line of mouthpieces, including:

  • Eb Clarinet
  • Bb and A soprano clarinet
  • Alto clarinet
  • Bassett Horn
  • Bass Clarinet
  • Contra Alto Clarinet
  • Contra Bass Clarinet.

Produced using cutting-edge, 21st-century technologies, these mouthpices were designed using CAD software and are realized through very high-end additive manufacturing. The designs are traditional, with subtle improvements that help meet the demands placed on the 21st century clarinetist.

I have been asked several times why I chose additive manufacturing to produce my mouthpieces, and about the material I selected. Click here for a bit more information.

Attention UK customers and clients - Howarth now has good sampling of Grabner HiTech Mouthpieces. Now is your chance to try them out!

I want to extend a big THANK YOU to the clarinet community. The acceptance of my new mouthpiece models has been very gratifying! Since July, we have made and sold over 400 mouthpieces! They are appearing in ensembles worldwide. Some mouthpieces are already appearing in major symphonies and on Broadway. 

Some models are already clear winners. The B1C bass clarinet mouthpiece has had a amazing reception. For more information on the B1C, click here.

The S3M and S3M-LE soprano clarinet mouthpieces have developed a wide following.

However, we are not going to rest on our laurels. Many have said they wanted Bb mouthpieces with a fuller sound, with more open tips and a larger chambers. We are working on this already, with an additional new blank to be available in a few weeks.

We are quite happy with our source of material, RPU 70, a Rigid Polyurethane. However, additional materials will be available in 2020. We are only on the very edge of this technology.

Look for more innovation throughout the year.

Legere Reeds and Grabner HiTech Mouthpieces

You probably already know that I am very impressed by the Legere Signature European Cut reeds.

We have now entered into a relationship with Legere Reeds, Ltd. where we can sell a Legere reed along with a mouthpiece. This will allow those who are unfamiliar with these great reeds to see how they work with the mouthpiece. 

The first mouthpiece we are going to do that with is the S3M-LE.
