 Bucchi Italian Crystal Mouthpieces
Author: kingofklez

I'm wondering if anybody has information regarding these MP's, especially their approximate facing measurements? I used to have one I think marked #3 but I have no idea the measurements and got it secondhand. I have since given it away and totally forgot about them until I saw one on the internet for sale that was marked a #4. Mostly I am just nostalgic as it was my first glass MP that I had totally forgotten about - was Bucchi really separate from Pomarico (not just rebranded like the Vandoren Crystals)? It seems that way as they look quite different and have a thicker tip rail than almost any Pomarico I remember. It would be nice if anyone knows the history of this company as there's almost no information online at all just for plain curiosities' sake.

Thank you in advance great clarinet hivemind :)

Contact Riccardo at Pomarico. He can tell you. Tell him John Gibson out in Arizona says hi if you do.

Just an update. Firstly, Riccardo is always extremely helpful and knowledgeable so I'd just like the say that - he sends his greeting to you too John! He confirmed that Bucchi was a separate company based in Genova, Italy and active in the 40s and 50s - very old mouthpieces. I'm still wondering if anyone on this forum has or had or knows anything about these. The only other Bucchi I have seen besides the one I had belonged to a klezmer clarinetist that I met at KlezKanada whose name I can't remember.
