MoBa Bb Mouthpieces
True Harmony in Craftsmanship
When Ricardo Morales and Morrie Backun discussed the idea of manufacturing Clarinet mouthpieces, they were faced with one question: How do we create a mouthpiece that is tailored to every player? With no simple answer, the two set out to redesign the mouthpiece from tip to table.
MoBa Bb Mouthpieces need no introduction; after all, they’re played on major concert stages around the world. With twelve models in our line-up, finding your ultimate mouthpiece is closer, or wider, than you think.
CRT: An excellent choice for clarinetists playing close-facing mouthpieces, the CRT offers great control and flexibility. Very compatible with synthetic reeds. Tip opening of .99.
LRT: Features an elegant, ringing quality, balanced by immediate responsiveness. The LRT is a popular model for players who prefer vintage French mouthpieces. Very compatible with synthetic reeds. Tip opening of 1.03.
TRT: The TRT has the playability and flexibility of the Legend, but allows for a larger column of airflow. Excellent for solo or large ensemble work. Tip opening of 1.09.
ORT: For the clarinetist with a developed air stream and embouchure, the ORT is ideal for orchestral playing. Tip opening of 1.11.
ORT+: For the clarinetist with a developed air stream and embouchure, the ORT+ is ideal for orchestral playing. Tip opening of 1.12.
PRT: To fill the largest halls, the PRT has a wider tip opening and requires a very strong embouchure and reed setup. Tip opening of 1.15.
PRT2: Same as the PRT and set at A=442. Tip opening of 1.15.
PRT+: To fill the largest halls, the PRT+ has a wider tip opening and requires a strong embouchure. Tip opening of 1.17.
PRT2+: Same as the PRT2 and set at A=442. Tip opening of 1.17.
MET: Designed with the clarinet section from New York's Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, the MET provides players with great response, huge projection and a full tone that will fill the largest halls. Tip opening of 1.18.
ART: Think MET, but with a longer facing: the ART is perfect for those who have always played a B40 styled mouthpiece. Tip opening of 1.19.
ART2: Same as the ART and set at A=442. Tip opening of 1.19.
