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 Chedeville “Elite” Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece creates a crisp strong clarinet tone that still has a beauty to it in its clean approach. Excellent control and intonation come with a free blowing nature with easy articulation. The medium length classic “Chedeville facing curve” produces a warm yet strong full tone with playability that is unsurpassed.
The Chedeville SAV Clarinet Mouthpiece combines the best qualities of our Umbra and Elite models. The SAV has the beautiful dark warmth of the Umbra with the free blowing clean articulation of the Elite. We took everything we have learned from our previous mouthpieces and rolled them into one amazing mouthpiece that is priced so that serious students can afford it.
