OVERVIEW

One of the finest student clarinet mouthpieces.

The Clark Fobes Debut is one of the finest student model clarinet mouthpieces on the market. The Fobes Debut mouthpieces have a fairly close facing that insures good resistance and focus to the sound. The result of this is better muscular development of the embouchure. Constructed with hand-finished acrylic and made with Fobes' professional "CF+" facing, it reflects the attention to the love of the craft of mouthpiece making that is at the heart of Fobes corporate culture. Each Fobes mouthpiece is play tested to ensure consistency and quality.

To say the least, this mouthpiece is easily the best student/intermediate on the market. The price only sweetens the deal! This mouthpiece plays almost as good as my Pyne, and is so much more affordable for all my students! It has a deep, rich tone, and works great with Vandoren reeds (other student mouthpieces usually only work well with a cheap reed). Without a doubt, it will outplay almost any Vandoren mouthpiece, and has the performance of professional models costing HUNDREDS of dollars more! If you want a good sounding clarinet, buy this mouthpiece! You simply cannot go wrong. The Fobes Debut mouthpiece and a Rovner Dark ligature are an unstoppable combination.

won't fit on any of my student's clarinets, cork too bulky?

Purchased these for my students so they wouldn't be using the cheap mouthpieces that came with the student line clarinets but they won't fit on any of my student's clarinets, cork too bulky?!

        Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Clarinet Mouthpiece:

        My daughter hated the mouthpiece that came with her R13 but hates shopping for anything. She refused to play it and after the money we spent on it, it was frustrating to see her still use her plastic clarinet. I did some research and decided to take a gamble and buy this for her. She loves this mouthpiece so much and now even likes her R13 best.

          Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Clarinet Mouthpiece:

          I'm a fairly experienced saxophonist and began playing clarinet about 8 months ago. I started on a Buffet student model and used the mouthpiece that came with it. The Fobes Debut made a huge improvement in my tone and is much more comfortable to use. I wish I had bought it 8 months ago.

            Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Clarinet Mouthpiece:

            An incredible mouthpiece for an incredible price. To me, it is the best out there in the "student" category and it sounds wonderful for a more experienced player who likes a closer spacing. I tried it on the old Yamaha Model 20 student clarinet with a Rico Reserve #3 reed and I could not believe the dark, focused sound with excellent core. I recommend it without reservation.

                This is the best student clarinet mouthpiece out there today. It can take a student from middle school through high school. Also recommend for doublers who don't want to fork out a fortune for a decent clarinet mouthpiece.

                I bought this mouthpiece for my daughter's clarinet. I then tested it on that and many other clarinets, and have been consistently impressed with its performance in every way. It's a fine all-purpose mouthpiece, whatever your skill level. It makes a very sophisticated sound, plays well in tune, handles all ranges, dynamics and colors well. Frankly, it outperforms a number of professional model mouthpieces by other makers that I've tried over the years that cost many times the price. You can't go wrong with choosing a Fobes Debut!

                I have just been playong for 3 years so I dont know if I will be able to specify the technical reasons why this mouthpiece is awesome. But what i do know is that it is clear, it gives a good amount of leeway so you dont have to put the reed in the EXACT same place every time for it to play well. It has been a perfect for me.

                Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Clarinet Mouthpiece:

                Just getting back into the clarinet after 46 years, so I'm a beginner again. I have a Buffet B-12 that came with a Hite Premiere mp and generic metal ligature. Yeah, I can make noise with it, but even my untrained ear told me "something" was missing. I also have a Vito II mouthpiece and several other metal ligatures, but they weren't as good as the Hite. So I got a Debut mp and a Rovner 1R ligature. It sounds a lot better to me, and seems to be easier to play, especially now that I'm crossing the break to the clarion register. The others are inconsistent, but this combination will work for me for quite a while to come. I can only hope I eventually get good enough to outgrow it!!
