Hi,everyone,
this is xiaoyu from china,here is my 1st try to make wood and hard rubber mouthpiece by 5 axis machine:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LK3vk2BGOns&feature=youtu.be

And I need to hand finish the mps. I use VANDOREN BD5's data with some change,the mps works great, it my 1st time to play a ebony wood mps, the vibration is great.
And I want to know more about mps, do you know where I can find any info about it?

I am understanding that YOU are making these mouthpieces on a CNC machine.



I would contact ESM (Ernst Schreiber Michelstadt) who CNCs all their mouthpieces. They use a plexiglass material but it is all machine.


Then I would also try Pomarico who still makes wood mouthpieces but I am not sure of the primary process that they use.

Thank you for reply.
But what I mean is how to hand finish the mps better, what's every parts of mps effect the sound quality . I have some experience about balance the side ralils ,change the tip open.But I want to know more,like how the chamber and throat type effect the sound ...

You may want to see if you can apprentice with an established mouthpiece refacer or maker.


Some of what I hear from folks who do this for a living is that they start off ruining a LOT of mouthpieces before beginning to learn what not to do.


Two things that aren't talked about much for example:

1. There is a distance from the reed to the baffle that you cannot exceed without completely losing response. For example we all know that making the baffle more concave gives you are "darker" sound (fewer upper partials) but if you get past a certain dimension, the sound becomes irreversibly flaccid and nothing can be done to fix it (I don't remember what that number is).

2. The bore has a much bigger affect on the response of the mouthpiece than most non makers think. Taking that into consideration with all the other factors such as length of lay, size of tip opening, thickness of rails shape of the baffle at the tip etc. etc. are all part of the magic that make a mouthpiece play the way it does.



Here in the US, two mouthpiece makers to talk to would be Walter Grabner of ClarinetExpress and Clark Fobes.

Seems like using Vandoren in the process would be a legal problem?

My understanding is that he's making them for research and personal use only. So no real legal issue here.
