Chedeville Elite Clarinet Mouthpieces: Everything You Need to Know

Mouthpieces can vary in uniformity and don’t always work with you to complement your technique, but Chedeville has created the Elite Clarinet Mouthpiece to solve both of those problems. Using topnotch materials and just the right combination of machine work and personal handwork, Chedeville gives you clear consistency and range in a small, yet incredibly valuable item.

Combination of Great Tonal Qualities

The warm sound of the Chedeville Elite Clarinet Mouthpiece maintains its integrity in a close setting, and also from afar. This characteristic is great for intimate practice settings as well as large performance spaces. Its spot-on intonation provides perfect sound even in delicate phrases. Articulation is immediate and easily controlled.

Proprietary Chedeville Rubber

Chedeville has been making Chedeville rubber since before World War II. Softer than other rubbers, this material gives off a much warmer tone. Using special tools, Chedeville’s staff carefully shapes the mouthpiece, and in turn the sound, to perfection. Each mouthpiece comes with a bamboo canister and mouthpiece pouch so you can enjoy its high quality for years to come.

Made with Consistency

Every mouthpiece is created in the Chedeville factory in Savannah, Georgia. The Chedeville team works hard to shape the facing curve just right, ensuring the playability, sound, and movement through all registers is up to par with the elite quality the mouthpiece’s name implies. Programmed in a 3-D drawing, the facing curve is cut by a CNC machine before handwork is applied to finish off the final details. Each mouthpiece is play-tested before it’s released to the public. The entire process retains consistency even between different tip openings.
