What is the mouthpiece ( Barnes)

Blackbird high quality mouthpieces are comprised of a neutral resin with innovative, gold plated brass fittings. The ergonomic design ensures the mouthpiece is suitable for all styles: the very shallow angle relaxes the throat muscles while the relatively sharply angled, rounded edges reduce stress on the corners of the mouth.

 

The internal design features four chambers: one above the baffle; one large, upper rear and two lateral which combine to optimise the response. A gold plated, single screw ligature optimises reed stability and control whilst a uniquely innovative internal, brass gasket eliminates vibration so ensuring the smoothest of airflows.

 

Tip opening sizes are given in both millimetres and inches.
