Clark has developed the "San Francisco" series mouthpieces over a period of twenty years. All of these mouthpieces reflect his attention to the love of the craft of mouthpiece making and correct acoustical design.
All of our original models have been hand crafted with the same care and precision that Claude started with nearly 50 years ago, making us one of the only- truly- vintage mouthpieces on the market. No matter your style or experience, we have a mouthpiece that will help you find your voice.
Designed in the 1980's by the world's leading mouthpiece designer Arnold Brilhart, the Graftonite line of mouthpieces incorporates revolutionary materials to achieve ease of tone production with a wide range of tonal colors.
Many years of consultation with the world's most respected clarinetists have influenced the design and performance standards of each J & D Hite clarinet mouthpiece. Crafted from the finest vulcanized rubber and molded on custom designed, personally crafted cores, Hite mouthpieces are individually hand faced and finished, as well as carefully micro-adjusted to the highest performance standards.
