 Gennusa Mouthpieces
Author: Ransome Fan

Many Years ago, I bought a Gennusa Bb clarinet mouthpiece from Frederick Weiner Music. It’s looking worn, and I ought to pick up another. Now when I check Frederick Weiner’s website, they list three Gennusa mouthpieces. I don’t know whether any of these correspond to the original one that I have, and if one of them does, which one it would be. Do any of you have any insight into this?

The only three choices I see on the Weiner website are the three different facings for the Gennusa Excellente (GE* - close, GE** - medium, and GE*** - open). Ben Redwine lists several different types of Genussa on his website, Excellente, Custom Excellente and Gennusa Retro. I think you may want the standard Excellente (and check the facing on yours to get the facing right). But check with Ben to be sure:

You could send your mouthpiece to Ben, he can refaced it but also measure it so he can replace it with the matching model.

Lots of variation, even in the same model. Bets to send it to Ben, or try out some others.
