I`m thinking of getting a new mouthpiece for my bass clarinet.I`m really wanting a Pomarico Crystal.I heard that these really improve tone and sound quality.I don`t have a certain music style so maybe this would be good for doing any kind.

I noticed there are several different kinds of styles for this mouthpiece.They have a 1,2, and 3...With dif. openings ect.Which would be best for me? I play on a strenght 3 reed.

Also,I`m wanting to get a good ligature to go with the crystal mouthpiece.Can someone recoment a good quality one at a good price?

Thanks for any help!!!

I`ve been told that unless you play in a professional band to stay away from crystal mouthpieces due to cost and how easy they break at the slightest bump.

So...? Maybe she wants to improve her sound. Maybe she is not irresponsible and does not drop her mouthpieces and treat her instrument as a play toy. Clarinet is such a glorious instrument, and I say that price and "how easy (easILY) it breaks" should not be of hindrance of making such a beautiful sound. But I mean, that`s just my opinion.

Anyway, I myself have not tried the crystal ones, but I`ve heard both good and bad things about them. Like most issues concerning which so-and-so to buy...it`s simply a matter of personal preference, so go to a place where someone will allow you to try out the mouthpieces. I hope I could be of some help.
