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?!

Quality student mouthpiece

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Clarinet Mouthpiece:

Bought this for my 10th grade daughter, who was using a generic mouthpiece the school gave her after she damaged the Vandoren B45 I gave her earlier. The difference in tone when she played this was immediately apparent and she says it's much easier to play. This mouthpiece is a good upgrade option for students playing on mouthpieces that typically come with student clarinets.

    I am a clarinetist and repair technician. I put this mouthpiece on a repad job and the sound was outstanding! Really made that student Bundy clarinet sound great!

          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.

                  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!
