I designed the “KZ” Bb clarinet mouthpiece for those performing or wanting to foray into Klezmer, Greek, Turkish or other eastern folk music. The wide tip openings and short facing curve of the KZ are use soft reeds (1 - 2.5) and produce a highly flexible and powerful sound with plenty of edge. I've also added a roll-over to the baffle that acts to increase the projection and brilliance of the sound.
- Handcrafted from Zinner A blank
- Designed for Klezmer or other Folk music
- Wide tip opening
- Edgy and flexible
The roll-over baffle of the KZ increases brilliance and projection.
The sidewalls of the KZ are wider than those of the Studio and create a reedy sound with plenty of bite.
