 Re: Klezmer Mouthpieces

I used to use a Vandoren VA0 with Vandoren Black Master 5s. Then I switched to a VA5 and Black MAster 4s.

Now I use Edward Pillinger mouthpieces (actually I use a Jody Jazz 7 on my C) and they are all very open, from 1.47-1.57.

With these open mouthpieces I use Vandoren or Rico Royal 1s.


All the bends, glisses, doinks, chirps and krekhtsen are possible on very closed or very open mouthpieces. Listen to "Budowitz - Wedding without a Bride" and "Merlin Shepherd Kapelye - Intimate Hopes & Terrors" to hear me playing a very closed mouthpiece on an Albert C and managing Klezmer OK.

The more open mouthpieces allow me (as has been said here) a much greater dynamic range, and actually more control.
