The Caravan Clarinet Mouthpiece design is fundamentally consistent with most other respected and widely used symphonic clarinet mouthpieces. Subtle but significant differences in the interior specifications include a slightly deeper tone chamber to enhance the “darkness” of the tone, and a slightly narrower diameter in the upper end of the bore (and a concomitant increased degree of bore taper) to improve the potential for a well-centered, focused clarinet tone quality. Side and tip rails are comparatively a bit wider, which helps encourage greater homogeneity of sound register to register and eliminate the common and aggravating “buzz” produced by most mouthpieces on the lowest chalumeau register notes. The facing curve is quite conventional except at a strategic point on the curve where it is a tiny bit more open to enhance responsiveness, while the tip opening is, in traditional terms, “medium-close” at around “108.”
