 Mouthpiece pitch tendency
Author: Luisebv

I would like to know if someone know about the mouthpiece tunning tendencies. Because i noticed that my best mouthpiece is the only one that is really in tune. I only have three mouthpieces (5RV, CL5, BD5) all on American pitch 440. But I noticed that my BD5 was the only that rarely need to pull out the barrel for tunning.

So I decide to check out my mouthpieces with my tunner (only the mouthpiece) they pitch on C, So the results was these:
5RV + 34 cents
CL5 + 10 cents
BD5 + 3 cents

Does anyone know that is normal to this mouthpiece pitch tendency? (or just is a factory inconsistency) And it could be fixed?

One easy solution could be a longer barrel, but already try that, and only make a mess on the resgiters of the clarinet. I don't know if could be possible fixed by refacing it or something else.

Thanks for the comments
