Inspired by the most prized, vintage mouthpieces of the 1920s, Reserve harnesses modern technology, pioneered by D’Addario, to recreate the incomparable mouthpiece craftsmanship of yesteryear. Milled—not molded—from hard rubber for a higher level of consistency, every Reserve mouthpiece is machined to the strictest tolerances. Of course, the true beauty of Reserve lies beyond its polished angles, curves, and proprietary material to something far more remarkable: its sound.
Milled, Not Molded
Expertly-designed to produce a precise, consistent, and pure sound; eliminates the need to try many before purchase.
Improved Tonal Evenness and Intonation
‘Cross the breaks’ with greater ease and experience fuller, more resonant ‘throat tones’. Achieve a more accurate scale, both individually and within ensemble sections.
Ease of Response
Both slur and tongue with greater facility, without sacrificing core in the sound.
Promotes Proper Playing Habits and Technique
Helps players to avoid biting, release unwanted body and finger tension, support their sound correctly, and develop a mature tone quality.
D'Addario Reserve and Reserve Classic clarinet reeds offer two great options to pair with your Reserve mouthpiece. When choosing a new mouthpiece, be sure to experiment with different cuts and strengths of reeds to achieve the most desirable sound and level of resistance for you.
