Having tried quite a few Selmer clarinet mouthpieces and finding most difficult to play at best, I was not expecting anything special with the C85 120. Every now and then I go into experimental mode and try out a few mouthpieces at a time. I have been playing a Portnoy BP03 with a Mitchel Lurie 3 1/2 on a Selmer Series 9 for the past few years and have been more than satisfied with the ease of sound production and volume but have been missing that extra sweetness or "Ooooo factor" as I call it. Well much to my surprise, the C85 120 has it. The "round" and "sweet" is there and it is easy to blow with a bit of resistance on my Series 9 with a Mitchel Lurie 3 reed. There is also plenty of volume available and it seems very consistent throughout the range of my clarinet. I find this piece head and shoulders above the famous "V" brand mass-produced open chamber mouthpieces. Of course your results may vary depending on your clarinet but it works and sounds great on my big-bore Selmer. Give it a try. The manufacturer description is surprisingly accurate on this one!
I recently purchased a C85 120 after an evaluation against a Selmer crystal. I have used a Selmer HS** for many years and I was impressed with the projection and clarity of the sound produced by the C85. There is a marked stability of all of the notes throughout the range of the horn and it is significantly easier to blow into. I would certainly recommend the C85 to anyone looking for an expressive improvement from the mouthpiece that they currently use.
I've been using this mouthpiece for about 2 months now i believe. At first I refused to write a review on this web site, because this mouthpiece was amazing, and I didn't want anybody to sound like me by using this mpc. I've tried so many different mpcs before I bought this one, including all Vandorens and others, and it really is hard to find a mpc this good. I found that I was able to produce a dark rich tone, and the fast staccatos sounded much less aggressive. This was what I was really looking for in this mpc, because the mpc I had previously frustrated me immensely while I was playing the Concerto for Clarinet by Mozart. I strongly recommend this mpc to anyone. Though this mpc can be a little bit bright, it really depends on what kind of reed you are using. This one goes perfect with Vandoren V12 3+1/2s.
For quite a few years I played a Charles Bay (Kasper copy med open/med) mouthpiece. About a year ago I purchased a new Buffet R-13 clarinet and the old Kasper was very problematic in pitchiness. I tried a number of mouthpieces in my collection and was fairly satisfied with an old Selmer HS** (still, however, a little pitchy, especially open G requiring a lot of lipping). I tried the Selmer C85 120 based on the manufacturers claim and the one posted review. I just received the mouthpiece and am blown away. The pitch problems have vanished. The dynamic range is unbelievable. Tone control is great over the entire dynamic range. I love it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you try it. It may be an especially good choice for those of you that also play saxophone due to its flexibility and ease of control.
