 RE: Student vs. Pro mouthpiece

Roger, I'm not Paul, but I can make a stab at answering your question. Last month I had the pleasure of meeting with Walter Grabner to try out some of his mouthpieces. He worked with me, had me play my clarinets (not an audition by any means, just to get an idea of what the horn sounded like, where there might be stuffiness, tuning problems etc. with the mouthpiece I was using). Based on what he saw and heard, we settled on one of the mouthpieces I had tried and he then proceeded to adjust it until he had it tweaked to meet my particular needs. I really like my new mouthpiece! I realize it isn't always possible to meet face-to-face with the person who is customizing your mouthpiece, but I would think the process would be similar, except that it would take a lot longer since you would be communicating back and forth (and sending the mouthpiece back and forth) about any adjustments that needed to be made to the mouthpiece you've chosen.

For Paul,

How do you know what to ask for when you decide to go for a 'custom cut' mouthpiece, if all you've been using are off the shelf ones?
