Clarinet and Saxophone Mouthpieces Anton Weinberg


This is a gem of a little book, packed with everything you’ll ever need to know about saxophone and clarinet mouthpieces. Design, history, who played what – it’s all covered – even reeds and ligatures get a look in. Each model is illustrated with a very clean and clear photograph, with a sometimes light hearted “food for thought” or a “tip” to supplement the often extraordinarily detailed text. There are also some very interesting and engaging passages where Weinburg draws on his vast experience and his own personal reminisces. Mouthpieces is somewhere between a reference guide and a player’s prayer book and will no doubt become an essential must have item for both student and seasoned professional alike.
