Handcrafted by the Pomarico family in Tuscany, Italy, each CG Crystal Mouthpiece is made from gorgeous crystal glass and features a metal-capped tenon for improved resonance. Only a select number of CG Mouthpieces are crafted each year, all of which are finished to Corrado Giuffreddi’s unrelenting standards, and hand-selected and play-tested by the Maestro himself.

CG Crystal Mouthpieces feature a matte, hand finished table. CG Plus Crystal mouthpieces feature a glossy, polished table optimized for synthetic reeds.

Specs

  • Bb: 1.19 mm tip opening
  • Eb: 1.19 mm tip opening with a 16.5 mm length
  • Bass: 1.80 mm tip opening with a 24 mm length

Note: CG Mouthpieces give the perception of a smaller tip opening due to the density of the material. Demo CG Crystal mouthpieces may have small internal bubbles that do not affect acoustical performance.

 

Note: All Demo Mouthpieces from Backun are cleaned, disinfected and sterilized for your health and safety. 

Washing Instructions: We recommend you wash your mouthpieces with warm water and mild dishwashing soap and then air dry it on a clean cloth. In classroom and group situations, we recommend the use of the Red Sterisol cleaner for its proven capability to clean, deodorize and sanitize mouthpieces. 

Please do not immerse your mouthpieces in, or clean your mouthpieces with, isopropyl, or other members of the hydroxyl group of products.

Note: This product is discontinued and is final sale.

CG Crystal

Wonderfully responsive mouthpiece. Full full sound. Good intonation(not great). Good articulation. Requires extra work to control and focus the sound (w/ Legere reed). A tad more focused with cane. But if you think you’ll be able to match Corrado, sorry. Ya still have to practice.

Excellent

The best mouthpiece I've ever had. It admits all the air flow that one can emit. great dynamic range. Perfectly combines with Legere reeds.
