It's not really mouthpiece or reed related though it's a bit easier with some setups.

It's easiest in the upper clarion. It's hard to describe how to do it but it's all to do with tongue position and something in the throat. Start with a C6. I can get it to go down at least a 6th, maybe even an octave on a good day, without adding fingers.
