Handcrafting the Best Clarinet Mouthpieces Worldwide

Our goal is simple – to make the greatest clarinet mouthpieces from the finest material possible for Classical musicians.  The all new range of Chedeville mouthpieces is now available.
Since the acquisition of the famous Chedeville company, Jody Espina and his advisory team of experienced players and educators have been working around the clock to develop the new range of Chedeville mouthpieces. The Chedeville company was originally founded in Paris in the early 1920’s, crafting their mouthpieces from super-resonant premium rod rubber. Now under the leadership of Jody Espina, Chedeville mouthpieces are once again available using the original Chedeville rod rubber recipe, reformulated after years of painstaking historical research.
For over two years Jody had been developing Classical Clarinet mouthpieces and has now combined his designs with ‘Chedeville Rubber’, and certain aspects of the original Chedeville models. All the mouthpieces in the range made from this proprietary hard rubber bear the ‘CHR’ mark.  If you don’t see the symbol CHR on the mouthpiece, it’s not made from genuine ‘Chedeville Rubber’. The new Chedeville Umbra, Elite and SAV series are now available, each offering distinctive sound and performance characteristics. Each of these models is available in a comprehensive selection of tip openings. 
New Chedeville and Kaspar Clarinet Barrels are also now available, the first of several new Clarinet and Saxophone Accessory products that will be introduced.
We invite you to become a part of a bright new chapter in the storied history of this famous company.

An exclusive collaboration with legendary studio musician and famed mouthpiece maker James Kanter. The Chedeville Kanter Cinema Clarinet mouthpiece has a beautiful warm sound while being very flexible. The Kanter Cinema model works very well for a variety of settings. It stands in the middle of tip openings and facing designs and appeals to more players than any other mouthpiece in the Chedeville range. “This is a sublime mouthpiece.”- Jim Kanter


The Chedeville “Umbra” Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece creates a beautiful dark sound full of rich colors. The Umbra is darker in sound color than our Elite model and also has less resistance, a combination that is seldom found in a clarinet mouthpiece. Because the mouthpiece doesn't add resistance, you will have no limits in dynamics, colors, or articulation.


The SAV Bass creates a beautiful robust sound with free-blowing, clear articulation. Like the Elite Series Bass model, the SAV Bass produces a warm yet strong, full tone with unsurpassed playability. While priced so that serious students can afford it, the SAV Bass is an excellent choice for any level of player.


The new Kaspar CB1 Clarinet Barrels are designed to add power and projection to the clarinet sound while decreasing resistance. The unique hourglass shape of the outside of the barrel was inspired by the interior shape which is the design element most influential in the sound projection of the barrel. The outside hourglass shape further increases resonance by reducing the thickness of the material at the center of the barrel. The Hard-Anodized Aluminum construction gives the Kaspar CB1 Clarinet Barrels their powerful sound and greater projection and because it’s Aluminum, they are also lighter than traditional barrels.


James Kanter is a world-renowned clarinetist and mouthpiece maker based in California. During his more than 40 years as a clarinetist in Los Angeles, Kanter has performed in nearly 1,500 motion picture scores and hundreds of TV shows. Kanter served on the music department faculties of University of California, both the Santa Barbara and Irvine campuses, and California State University Northridge. He performed as principal clarinetist with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, the Pacific Symphony Orchestra, and the Joffrey Ballet Orchestra.

Kanter continues to handcraft “James Kanter” clarinet mouthpieces using Chedeville Blanks. Here is a speech Kanter gave at ClarinetFest 2022 about his experience with Jody Espina and Chedeville.
