Articulation, pianissimo to fortissimo dynamics, your ability to express the beauty of the clarinet and the music you are playing are at the forefront of all our decisions in designing and creating the Elite clarinet mouthpiece.
No expense has been spared in creating the Elite model clarinet mouthpiece. Starting with our proprietary “Chedeville Rubber”, which is a more pure rod ebonite that recreates the great rod rubber of Pre World War II legendary Chedeville mouthpieces. If you don’t see the symbol CHR on the mouthpiece than it does not have “Chedeville Rubber.
The most advance form of digital scanning was used on legendary vintage Chedeville clarinet mouthpieces to assure that we were starting with a true Chedeville mouthpiece “blank”.
We manufacture the mouthpieces from beginning to end in our factory in Savannah Georgia using state of the art CNC machines and expert mouthpiece artisans on the crucial and indispensable handwork.
Several hundred prototypes were made in search of the ultimate clarinet mouthpiece deserving of the name “Chedeville”. Consistency is our obsession. That is why we have the most extensive series of mandatory measurements and play testing in the industry. We encourage you to embrace our “Life Without Limits” philosophy. We have made a mouthpiece which will not hinder you in any way and allow you to achieve all of your musical goals and beyond.
