New Theodore Johnson TJ4E Clarinet Mouthpiece. Eb Mouthpiece (Zinner Hard Rubber).Produces a darker, broader sound. TJ4 Eb is my personal favorite. Made from a German Hard Rubber Zinner Blank, it has a medium tip opening and produces a dark, bold sound. I have always felt that the Eb clarinet sound should be a natural extension of the Bb clarinet sound. The sound should be broad and dark like the Bb clarinet.
It should definitely not be a thin and edgy sound so often associated with the average Eb clarinet. Theodore Johnson , clarinetist for 36 years with The Cleveland Orchestra, has developed a state of the art clarinet mouthpiece.
His performance skills, as well as his experience as a teacher at numerous conservatories, have lead to the development of a mouthpiece which allows the performer to concentrate on making music rather then being distracted by tone production and intonation problems. The warm focused sound lies somewhere between the French and German Schools of clarinet sound. This mouthpiece is ideal for the young beginning clarinetist, the aspiring advanced musician, and the professional clarinetist.
