Ridenour - MT40 Facing: A Series - Clarinet Mouthpiece
T-40 Facing: Characterized by a very close tip opening with long curve, the T-40 facing requires a very well-balanced reed that has lots of wood in it. The T-40 style facing has an excellent combination of resistance and responsiveness, enables the clarinetist to play with great sensitivity and control in the upper register and produces a very deep, covered, yet clear tone, requiring very little embouchure pressure to focus and control.
The Ridenour A Series Clarinet Mouthpiece has a dark, compact tone. It is phenomenally efficient and has secure response and excellent focusing qualities. All these combine to make it the preferred model for the orchestra or band clarinetist who must produce large amounts of tonal volume without loss of center or quality in the tone.
Ridenour mouthpiece facings share certain common features. They are characterized by a perfect symmetry and are voiced by means of a seamless blending of the mouthpiece curve that creates the ideal relationship between response and the "cushioned feel" highly prized by serious clarinetists. Ridenour facings are super reed friendly and most players find many more reeds play well for them and that reed adjustment is simplified with Ridenour mouthpieces.
