 URGENT; Pomarico Crystal MouthPiece
Author: LeftHandedClarinetist 
Date:   2016-11-02 05:13

Hello. I am a relatively new clarinet player (young). I have been playing for 6 years since 5th grade, and am currently a first chair in my Varsity band (Sophomore). Funny how the other students have R-13's with the crystal (Pomarico) mouthpiece horn setup and I'm the only non-wooden horn.

I HAVE AN URGENT QUESTION. I am getting the Pomarico Crystal Mouthpiece, but do not know which one to use.
I have the Yamaha-255 (ABS Resin), I use the V21 3.5 reeds.

The Pomarico comes in 3 types:
-Ruby
-Emerald
-Diamond

But then they have either (B) Bright, or (M) Mellow. I currently play on the Vandoren B45 mouthpiece and it's horrible. I CAN'T PLAY THE HIGH E (highest clarinet note) without squeaking after ~2 seconds. It just won't play. Reed won't vibrate (I've tried everything and my teacher said maybe it was my mouthpiece). So which one do I get?

I want:
1. The crystal Pomarico mouthpiece.
2. A fuller more resonate sounding clarinet. In other words, I need one that will PLAY RESPONSIVE in the high notes with good stability. (My biggest thing is high notes E, D, and C).
3. Which one will make my clarinet (ABS Plastic) sound more fuller/richer; the (B) Bright, or (M) Mellow? Which one will make it sound like so?
4. The Emerald (not getting it) has the smallest gap, the Ruby has the second to smallest of <1.10mm gap. The Diamond (B) has the biggest of 1.25 mm. My B45 (current Vandoren) mouthpiece has a 1.2mm. People say the bigger the gap, the harder/less responsive it is to play high notes.

#1 Priority is High Notes. Thanks!!!
