 RE: Boosey & Hawkes mouthpieces?

I differ with the opinion that mouthpieces don't affect pitch. The mouthpiece has a tremendous effect on not only the pitch level of the clarinet, but the intervals as well. If you like your current mouthpiece, try it on the instrument using a tuner. If you are in tune with this set-up, then use it. If the pitch is not good, then you should consider other mouthpieces with a larger bore, such as the very old Selmers.
