Our Description

Inspired by the most prized, vintage mouthpieces of the 1920s, the Reserve harnesses modern technology, pioneered by D’Addario, to recreate the incomparable craftsmanship found in these legendary works of art. Milled — not moulded — from hard rubber for a higher level of consistency, every Reserve mouthpiece is machined to the strictest tolerances. But make no mistake: the true beauty of Reserve lies beyond its polished angles, glorious curves and proprietary materials to something far more remarkable…its sound.

  • Milled from hard rubber, just like vintage mouthpieces
  • Precision machining delivers unparalleled accuracy – no hand finishing required
  • Created by a team of top players, craftsmen and engineers
  • Vintage-inspired tone, modern intonation
  • Available in five facings and tip openings in two different pitches
  • Made in the USA

Why Reserve?

  • Accurate intonation and a rich, vintage-inspired tone
  • Ease of response and articulation, without sacrificing core in the sound
  • Improved evenness throughout the range of the clarinet - Components of playing, such as ‘crossing the break’, become easier and ‘throat tones’ are fuller and more resonant
  • Fosters proper playing habits and technique in students - Encourages students to avoid biting, release unwanted body and finger tension, and support their sound correctly
