I cannot coment on his soprano clarinet mouthpieces, but I have been using Clark's
alto cl. mouthpiece and am now on my second one for bass clarinet and I have
nothing but the highest praises for his work. Of course, these are matters of
individual taste, but I simply love my latest bass cl. mouthpiece and am getting
rid of all my old ones. The workmanship is superb, he intonation right on, and
the sound is just what I wanted. I should add the regular disclaimer that I have
no interest in his, in fact I have never met the man.
