 Re: Henri Chedeville?

Thanks Chris. Down through the years I've saved photos of different mouthpieces, but in all my travels I've never seen a Henri Chedeville. I've read what I can about "Chedeville," the most recent thing was that Henri, a cousin or something, simply used Ch. Chedeville blanks in the same way that others (Kaspar, Bay) did. So Id begin to wonder whether there was no such thing as a *labeled* Henri Chedeville, but only a Ch. Chedeville blank refinished by Henri. Not that it matters, except that these are supposed to be the rare and superior ones. Unfortunately, in my study I feel no closer to really understanding the Chedeville story.

For example, one finds a statement such as this:

The old Chedeville pieces are long out of manufacture. There were three Chedeville makers, Charles, Lalandais, and Henri.

I've read that Chedevcille bought Lelandais, and I've read exactly the reverse.

In the end it doesn't matter a great deal to enjoying your clarinet, but I do wish more historical information about the instrument and accessories was available. For instance, the clarinet moniker "Leon Trotte" has been very important in my experience of playing, and there is simply no information available about that manufacturer. I've owned two "Trottes" in my life. How strange!
