 Re: The German Mouthpiece Experience

I did fail to mention some specifics. Yes, the N1 is a traditional German mouthpiece with the grooved surface. I tried a slip on braided ligature made by Vientos Bambu (I've been using this on my ESM mouthpiece) first, but I would have had to make it tighter to fit snuggly. Being lazy at heart, I just opted to tie the reed on with one of the many strings I have lying around (with some 100% bees wax on it to make it a bit tacky).


I believe this version of the Viotto N1 was made specifically to be played on standard Boehm clarinets. Mr. Bas de Jong mentioned making the tenon 1mm thinner and 1mm shorter. It would be just a matter of re-corking to allow it to fit back onto a Wurlitzer (I think).


I agree completely with Donald. The only thing the Yamaha CSG has in common with a German clarinet is the 'write up' it gets from Yamaha. I had used R13s interchangeably with my set up over the last ten years and find them to virtually identical (that is the CSGs vs the R13). My personal horn is a CSG because (due to my laziness) it was easier to find one that tuned evenly for me. It was literally the first and only CSG I tried and I bought it on the spot.


I am not retired from the Army Band program and no longer have a ready access to R13s. This led to an interesting problem (for me anyway). I have a modified R13 barrel so I can play German Wurlitzer mouthpieces on the R13. But I have not (and will not) modify one of my Yamaha barrels so I could not directly compare the Wurlitzer to the Viotto. I do recall quite specifically thinking that because the German mouthpieces are longer, they may have problems playing flatter in the altissimo than the rest of the range. This is the problem I experienced on my Wurlitzer M3+. That is why I am so pleasantly surprised with the results from the Viotto.


Donald, I have a question for you. Are you saying that current Wurlizer Reform Boehm mouthpieces fit into the top of a standard Boehm clarinet (ie Buffet)? When last I ran into one (1997 in Korea), the top barrel socket was the same "oversized" version that I had on the top of my Oehlers.


If you are asking if I am selling the mouthpiece, unfortunately it is not mine to sell - it is going back to Bas de Jong. But I'm sure he has a bunch of 'em !!!!
