Mouthpieces for woodwind instruments

Mouthpiece – performs a number of functions in the overall sound formation on the musical instrument. It synchronizes all oscillatory processes and is an acoustic filter for musical instruments, also with a mouthpiece musician regulates the power of the lips closing. For shortscale musical instruments take the mouthpiece with a narrow foot. There is also a special adapters to the mouthpiece with a narrow stalk can be used on long scale instruments, but everything is better to do without them, initially choosing the right leg length. Some companies produce mouthpieces with specially weighted outer walls of the cup, as if more elongated, and the sound acquires a greater volume and power, which indeed it is often necessary in orchestral playing. Most mouthpieces are available in silvere, but there are also gold-plated, also produced mouthpieces with removable fields of plastic and are fully plastic mouthpieces for those performers who by the nature of its activities are forced to play outdoors in the cold season or just for one or otherwise do not have access to conventional mouthpieces. Available mouthpieces of a transparent material – to practice before a mirror.

On single-reed instruments, such as the clarinet and saxophone, the mouthpiece is that part to which the reed is attached. Its function is to provide an opening through which air enters the instrument and one end of an air chamber to be set into vibration by the interaction between the air stream and the reed. Single-reed mouthpieces are basically wedge shaped, with the reed placed against the surface closest to the player's lower lip. The player's breath causes the reed to vibrate. The reed beats against the mouthpiece, and in turn causes the column of air inside the instrument to vibrate. The top half to three-quarters of the table is open to the inside of the mouthpiece. As with the brass instruments, the shape of the interior of the mouthpiece can greatly affect the sound of the instrument. Mouthpieces with a large, rounded chamber will produce a quite different sound from one with a small or square chamber.

The distance between the tip of the mouthpiece and the tip of the reed is known as the tip opening. The tip opening has little effect on tone, which is more affected by the design of the mouthpiece's chamber (interior space). The facing (or lay) is a curved section that leaves the flat table and continues to the tip of the mouthpiece. The length of a facing – defined as the distance from the tip of the mouthpiece to the point where the reed and mouthpiece meet – can vary. Different facing lengths have different response properties. The reed is held tightly against the mouthpiece by a ligature. Anything that can hold the reed on the mouthpiece may serve as a ligature.
