 Mouthpiece for large-bore clarinet?
Author: Bobsterz

I just had a Selmer Series 9 restored. It is said to be a larger bore, NON-polycylindrical clarinet with larger tone holes. Nonetheless, it seems like my better mouthpieces fit internally (inner diameter). They each sound nice in their own way. (Portnoy, Rico Reserve, and Vandooren B45, which sounds a little harsh.) Maybe I need to get some calipers.
But I'd love to hear any know-how on this topic, especially on mouthpiece selection. I am semi-retired and play Golden Era pieces and Latin classics (and fun odds and ends) locally, so it's a treat to have this clarinet and experiment with, how to say it, a bigger, more visceral kind of sound for my little niche act.
