We are sure that you have heard all of


the buzz about how terrific Zinner
mouthpieces are! The majority of custom
woodwind mouthpiece makers now use
Zinner mouthpiece blanks to make their
wonderful homemade mouthpieces.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of these
mouthpieces are out of the price range
that students can afford in addition to
potentially not being well suited for beginning, middle or high school music making
needs.
Now, for an affordable price, you can
have a superior custom mouthpiece for
your school district or teaching studio!
Give us your favorite hard rubber mouthpiece for Bb clarinet, Eb clarinet, bass
clarinet, alto or tenor saxophone and we
can make your district sound more uniform and improve the overall sound of the
ensemble! We can even engrave your
school district number on your customized Zinner mouthpiece.
Please note that we are able to accommodate
most custom requests, however, unusually or
complicated requests may result in additional
charges or possible rejection.

Tip Opening
Probably the most important place to start
when choosing a mouthpiece (often the
only choice offered). Larger tip openings
favor volume & projection over control
while smaller tip openings favor control
over volume & projection. Larger openings also require a softer reed while
smaller openings require a harder reed.
In general, larger tip openings are indicated by higher numbers. Use the charts
that follow to see how each mpc compares to others. For comparison purposes, a "Selmer C*" would be Classical and
easy to control, a "Meyer 5M" would be a
traditional Jazz mpc, an "Otto Link 7"
would be a modern Jazz mpc, and a
"Berg Larsen 110" would be a contemporary Jazz mpc with volume and power but
less control.
Material
Metal mpcs resonate more quickly than
rubber, giving a brighter more projected
sound. They are more sensitive to temperature changes and are usually used
for Jazz only.
Bore
Smaller bores give a brighter, more compact sound while larger bores give a darker, more mellow sound.

Baffle
With a "High Baffle", the roof of the mouthpiece is closer to the reed, creating a
brighter, edgier sound. With a low baffle,
the roof is further from the reed, creating a
somewhat darker sound (refer to the
Vandoren diagram to compare the "high
baffle" Jumbo Java to the "low baffle" V5).

Facing Length
Short facing lengths give a clear brilliant
sound while long facing lengths give a
more robust sound with stronger lows,
more flexibility and better control.

DKota - Rubber

Chamber Shape
Most mouthpieces have an "arch" chamber shape (you can see the shape by
looking though the cork-side opening).
Other options include a "square" chamber
or "round" chamber.
