I had the good fortune recently to have a Chedeville bass clarinet
mouthpiece all but fall out of the sky and into my lap. I must say that it
made a big difference in my bass sound, removing all the "fuzz." The sound
is so big and resonant I almost have to back off a bit! It sure would be
nice if these guys did not take their secrets to the grave with them!
