 Yellow MP patch

There are some videos on youtube where the clarinet player has a yellow mouthpiece patch with no discernable branding on it. Not vandoren or daddario.
Such video is Carbonare playing the Rachmaninoff piano symphony 2 clarinet solo.
Does anyone know?

We could ask him (Facebook has some use). Before the modern mouthpiece patches were readily available some player would cut a square from a rubber kitchen glove and glue it on the mouthpiece beak. These were often yellow (haven't seen that since the early 1990s)

I used to use those, and still have some in my case. They are by Yamaha.

When you peel them off and put them on the mouthpiece they look a bit more transparent/yellowish.

Yamaha patch, quite thick and soft. Colour more like khaki, sand, light brown or something.

Principal Clarinet, Tampere Philharmonic, Finland

Yes these are the Yamaha Soft Type 0.8 or 0.5 thickness mouthpiece patches. My question, which I have never received an answer to from Yamaha or anyone else, is why these specific "soft type" Yamaha patches are not sold in the United States. They are extremely popular mouthpiece patches used by top players around the world yet the ones sold by Yamaha in the US are not this type.

Yamaha has also not sold some of its clarinet models in the US. For example, the SEV Master model and one of the G Models. Both of those seem to have been widely available in Japan. I've not seen a satisfactory explanation for that marketing decision either.
