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.

Excellent "Student" mouthpiece outperforms many pro models!

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student 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!

Awesome

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Clarinet Mouthpiece:

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.

I'm no expert, but my ear tells me it works!!

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!!

AMAZING!

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Clarinet Mouthpiece:

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.

Great mouthpiece, a real bargain

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Clarinet Mouthpiece:

Clark's Debut is a fantastic mouthpiece. These are hand finished mouthpieces made of acrylic rather than hard rubber. In this way, he is able to offer these for a great price. Don't be fooled by the price. It plays better than many mouthpieces at 2 or 3 times the price. I have played pro mouthpieces and vintage mouthpieces that don't play as well as the Debut.

Underrated!

By

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Clarinet Mouthpiece:

I recently bought a new Selmer clarinet. I read the mouthpiece wasn't very good, so the Fobes Debut was a recommendation by WW&BW sales staff. I tried it with Vandoren V-12 2.5 reeds, Rovner ligature and can develop good tone. I also have a Hite Premiere. But one has to blow harder just to get coherent tone. The Fobes Debut mouthpiece is underrated. Try it.

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Clarinet Mouthpiece:

You should all try Clark's mouthpieces. They play with a warm, beautiful sound and make playing your horn fun. He is doing great work on his mouthpieces for clarinet & saxophone. I highly encourage everyone to try them.

Very satisfied

By

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Clarinet Mouthpiece:

I have been playing with Vandoren reeds 2 - 2.5 with the default mouthpiece which came with My LeBlanc Vito 7216 "Pete Fountain" (not the granadilla one, just a "special edition" of Vito with Pete Fountain signature on it) clarinet and I had difficulties maintaining centered nice tone, especially when jumping between registers... So I bought this mouthpiece and found out that with it and a half-step stronger reed everything is now easier for me, even vibrato is nicer... Also the tone is slightly better, but I think that it will take some time before my embouchure adapts to this combination... All in all, I am happy to finally find something that suits me well and makes my practicing fun again :)
