Still, I believe it's accurate to say that ideally a C clarinet would
use a different mouthpiece. I'd be willing to bet that a lot of the
intonation problems associated with the instruments stem from the fact
that a regular Bb mouthpiece is slightly too large (think of using a Bb
mouthpiece on an Eb instrument for a much more exaggerated example!).

I remember Walter G. pointing out that of course, technically speaking,
the A clarinet would best be served by a uniquely tailored mouthpiece too...
