Subj: [kl] Kinder Clarinet - Chedeville Mouthpiece?
Date: Wed, 30 May 2001 09:47:05 -0400

I recently bought a Kinder Clarinet. I've always wanted to try one, and a
show
job came up that required an E-flat clarinet. I was pleasantly surprised by
the
instrument. It is a free-blowing little 'Eefer' that served the purpose
well,
at a price the I could handle. I found that I could accommodate the
simplified
keying design of the Kinder without too much trouble. The only key I missed
was
the right-hand sliver key for B-natural/F-Sharp. Its clarion and altissimo
registers enabled me to out-penetrate the piccolo beside me!

I got a little heat from other wind players for the cutesy case it came in,
but it
was good for a laugh.

Here's the question. The Kinder Clarinet came with a nice mouthpiece (for
me, anyway)
that had the name 'Chedeville' printed on it. Now I know about the revered
Chedeville
mouthpieces - is the one I have somehow related to them?
