Chedeville Umbra Mouthpieces Leap to the Top of the Pack

The legacy of Charles Chedeville is fully realized with this new line of Chedeville classical clarinet mouthpieces, made with Jody Espina’s incredible proprietary CHR rubber. I own over four dozen excellent soprano clarinet mouthpieces, and could play any of them. Out of these, there are a handful that, in my opinion, set the very highest standard. The Umbra, seemingly coming out of nowhere, is at the very pinnacle. Astonishingly free-blowing and easy to articulate for a mouthpiece of this depth of colour, it can do everything from Mozart to Monk. Just…phenomenal.
