Recently I made a mouthpiece tip and side tail measure tool .Measured and use legere euro cut reed to tested at least 10 different brand &model clarinet mouthpieses . The fact is almost all mouthpieses is imbalance(vandoren 5rv b45,5jb,BD5,SR-S1,bemonts,ridenour hw,t36,yamaha4c.. side tail is not at same high,or 2 side play test is different ) ,But playeasy B2 and pomarico is except. Playeasy mouthpieces is factory recommend to play with playnick reed,what is second development of legere reed. But all of them play with traditional reed is fine after I balanced the reed.
Here is my thought: The factory product mouthpieces have manufacturing error,even Vandoren,The only way to fix this is hand repair. But it will cost much. But they can ignore this problem.Why? People usually play traditional reeds ,they can tested 2 side of reed and balance the reed.So the combine is fine. People will not noticed the mouthpieces is imbalanced.
But the fact is even when the reeds after balanced,is still imbalance,just fit the imbalanced mouthpieces well. And if this reed use to another mouthpiece , it will plays still imbalanced. Also when we picked up from a bunch of mouthpieces to find a best, the fact is maybe it just played balanced with your reed.
Till now,the legere reed is well balanced because the material is same density. So if people used imbalance mouthpieces to play with it, The result is imbalanced.That is why most mouthpieces play legere reeds are not so good. You can test mouthpieces like test traditional reed. Play with legere reed side by side. If plays the same resistance the mouthpieces should be balanced.
After knowing this ,I start balance all of my mouthpieces, and all plays better with legere,even my 3d printer PLA mouthpiece!
