Selmer Focus Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece
The Selmer Focus Bb Clarinet mouthpiece is the culmination of intense research and development efforts from Selmer Paris. After completely reinventing their Bb clarinet mouthpiece range, two new models have been introduced- the Focus and the Concept. Designed to be more fitting to the aesthetics of today’s clarinettists.
As the name suggests, the Focus mouthpiece focuses the air flow through the new throat design, which creates a thicker, fuller sound, expanding the tonal colours available. The Focus mouthpiece features the smaller tip opening of the two models, which in turn improves control and provides a flexibility throughout the entire range.
This hand finished mouthpiece brings together Selmer’s quality with excellence of tradition and innovation to form a mouthpiece that will work for many players.
- Tip Opening – 1.05mm
- Facing Length – 23mm
- Trapezoidal Chamber
Selmer Paris began in 1885 set up by Henri Selmer, with the manufacture of reeds and mouthpieces. From 1898, with the help of one workman, Henri began manufacturing clarinets at his workshop in Paris. From 1903, Alexandre Selmer, Henri’s brother (principle of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra) begins playing his brothers clarinets and then selling them in 1905, increasing the popularity of the brand in the US. From 1940-1980 they developed and released over 4 different models of clarinet in Bb and A, models of which have been discontinued, but set the in motion the development of the models which are for sale today. It was in 2010 that Selmer Paris celebrated its 125th anniversary and were labelled a Living Heritage Company by the French state recognising their excellence of tradition and innovation
