 RE: Boosey & Hawkes mouthpieces?
Author: Rex Tomkinson

I am not familiar with the edgware clarinet, but I have played wide bore 1010's for many years-and the road to mouthpiece heaven has been a long and bumpy one! I don't know whether your B45 is compatible with the bore size of the Edgware, but if the mouthiece has the smaller of the bores, you have no chance. It is not just a question of the intonation-the dynamics of the instrument will be out and the instrument will just sound 'wrong'. (that's not a very technical explanation, I know) If the mouthpiece has a larger bore than the instrument (which I doubt)you can sometimes get away with it-but NEVER the opposite. I bow to the opinions of all the contributors, but I have a sneaky suspicion that your original advisor knew what he/she was talking about! If, when you test the intonation critically against a tuner, you decide that your B45 is not 'cutting the mustard', my advise would be to try (if you can find them)some Boosey and Hawkes 1010 mouthpieces or take some advise from Peter Eaton who now produces a comprehensive range of mouthpieces; one of which would be bound to suit. I hope I have helped.
