 Re: Mouthpiece for large-bore clarinet?

Some mouthpieces known to work well on large bore Selmers are the old Selmer oval pieces (they have facings like HS*, B*, C* etc. engraved into the table and inscribed in an oval), the even older "table" Selmers that have the word "table" followed by the facing inscribed on the table, and the original New York Woodwind Co. mouthpiece with facings like G7, C7, K7, N6, A8. The specs for the New York Woodwind pieces vary a great deal. It is always risky to buy mouthpieces off the web sites without first trying them or at least having a return option. The most consistent pieces of these three would be the Oval Selmers. IF you play mostly jazz, you might also try some of the old slant Otto Link mouthpieces as well. Brillharts can be good too but their quality varies widely.
