Subj: [kl] Kinder Cl & Chedeville Mouthpiece?
Date: Wed, 30 May 2001 11:17:13 -0400

Dear Glinch,

YES, Glotin in France still lists Chedeville (& Lelandais) on their logo.
Fred Weiner carries mouthpieces that I understand are imported to the U.S.
through Glotin, under these _SAME_ names. I have no firsthand experience
with these mouthpieces, but did inquire regarding the prices being
inexpensive in comparison to vintage Chedeville or Lelandais mouthpieces or
blanks. I was told that they were not the same mouthpieces as those that
came from the famous French farmhouse, etc.

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
