Corrado Signature Series
Signature Series Clarinet Mouthpieces
By Hawkins and Backun
“After developing the Vocalise line of clarinet mouthpieces and many years working with individual artists and achieving personalized results, I am so pleased to introduce the Signature Series by Hawkins and Backun. A new venture of bore designs and facings that I have always wanted to create making the clarinet easier and more beautiful for any player.”
Corrado Signature Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece
Maestro Corrado Giuffredi knows no bounds and this mouthpiece proves it. A traditional bore design with a more open/long facing, the Corrado Signature is a gorgeous take on a flexible centred tone and is crafted on marbled green hard rod rubber. With playable ease and smoothness across registers, this model yields an altissimo that produces wonderfully strong overtones and rich character.
Tip Opening: 1.20mm.
“Like great vino or balsamico, it has taken years for this mouthpiece to become what it is. Balanced and vibrant, with comfort throughout the entire range. I hope you love this mouthpiece as much as I do.”
I have played off and on for many of my 83 years. My abilities are adequate to play 2nd chair in our community band, I really lack talent but am a pretty good technician. Being a former CPA rhythms are probably my strong suit. This mouthpiece really allows me to developed a full, deep tone with a soft reed which I prefer. I’ve purchased many, this certainly the best mouthpiece I’ve found for my level of abilities.
Another epic mouthpiece!
My favorite Backun Musical Services mouthpiece that I have ever played. I have used both synthetic (Silverstein ambipoly) and cane (Ishimori and Vandoren) reeds and response and tone quality reeds. I have owned practically every mouthpiece and this is by far the best one, and that says a lot. Bravo Josh, Morrie, Corrado and Team Backun!
Love the sound and stability
Played with Vandoren Lepic 3.5, tried with V12 Force 3 and Légère 3.25 Euro Cut. The mouthpiece is very stable in all register, works well with any type of reed. Good warm sound
This Corrado Signature is free blowing with good intonation and rich tone. It’s instantly my favorite mouthpiece!
Corrado Signature Mouthpiece
Excellent mouthpiece!!! Bravo! Very smooth, even sound and legato. Sound holds nicely together in all dynamic ranges. Articulation is clean with a nice “ping” is all registers.
Really cool looks and sound
This may be premature because my new Corrado Signature mouthpiece only just arrived but the green and black hard rubber is very cool and I am loving the combination of tonal nuance, rich spectrum of colour, dynamics and good intonation throughout all registers. I can control the high notes with greater subtlety than on the BD5, even play very high notes softly. I’m using a V12 3.5 reed. I would love to know which ligature Corrado himself uses with this mouthpiece.
