OVERVIEW

Unique handcrafted professional mouthpiece.

Clark W. Fobes developed the San Francisco series mouthpieces over a period of twenty years. All of these mouthpieces reflect attention to the love of the craft of mouthpiece making and correct acoustical design. Fobes uses only Zinner blanks for these mouthpieces. These fine blanks represent the best in material and consistency currently available. Hans and Carsten Zinner have been extremely helpful in producing a very fine custom blank for Fobes. This blank is not available to other makers and should not be confused or compared to the Zinner blanks used by others.

In addition to using this very fine custom blank, Fobes further customizes the bore by reaming it to specs that produce superior intonation and a characteristic Fobes ring. The Fobes San Francisco Bb clarinet mouthpieces produces a sound rich in overtones with a compact center, one that can find a place in any type of playing.

This Really Is IT!

Comments about Clark W Fobes San Francisco Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

The San Fransisco CF+ is one marvelous mouthpiece! A nice sweet & dark sound, total dnamic control, superb intonation, and extreme comfort! The only other mouthpiece in my case is a Fobes CWF mouthpiece. I own many quality pieces, from $450 to $250, and they are all now in a drawer. Maybe I can make them into doorstops. I recommend the CF+ to anyone looking for "THAT" sound!

Comments about Clark W Fobes San Francisco Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

Beautiful craftsmanship. One of the finest mouthpieces you will find. Very reed friendly, great response, tuning and tone. Easy to play and excellent in all respects. I have played most all of the top stuff out there including the top vintage mouthpieces and Clark Fobes mouthpieces easily equal of surpass most any. They should be on any serious player's short list of mouthpieces to try!

Great Mouthpiece!

Comments about Clark W Fobes San Francisco Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

I'd really been struggling with a mouthpiece that gave me that perfect focused sound, and then my teacher introduced me to this. She had gotten the CF and found it a little too closed, so she had recommended me to try the CF+. However, it also is fairly closed ( more closed than most mouthpieces). The mouthpiece really gives me this beautiful dark colorful sound that I cant live without! My only complaint is that both my teacher and I have a difficult time finding hard enough reeds. We're both using vandoren 5 with this. I would definitely recommend an experienced player to try this, because once you do, you will never have to look for a mouthpiece again!

Beautifu sound and clarity

Comments about Clark W Fobes San Francisco Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

Wow, I was blown away with this mouthpiece; the craftsmanship is second to none. It is very free blowing and produces a very pure sound. I was a bit hesitant to buy it because of the price, but IÆm glad I decided to. If you get this mouthpiece also be sure to get an ultimate ligature by Francois Louis. These two items paired will make the best out of your clarinet. I choose the 13 Kaspar style. The sound is just so magnificent, full bodied and dark in the low notes and warm in the higher notes. I highly recommend this mouthpiece. It also comes in a case that is a bit cheap, but at least it protects the mouthpiece.
