In the very beginning, Jody Espina worked with some of the greatest Classical musicians from around the world to define what a great mouthpiece is. The most advanced form of digital scanning was used on legendary vintage Chedeville mouthpieces to assure that we were starting with a true
Chedeville mouthpiece “blank”. Several hundred prototypes were made in search of the ultimate clarinet mouthpiece deserving of the name “Chedeville”. Since then, we’ve created only products that qualify within these guidelines for full bodied, harmonic, rich, mouthpieces, so that we may call our mouthpieces “truly great”.
