A recent breakthrough in the production of the facing curve of the Caravan clarinet mouthpiece, combined with its distinctive interior design, has resulted in a highly consistent symphonic mouthpiece that features an uncommon blending of tonal beauty, projection, and responsiveness.
Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece
The open-chamber design features a large enough tone chamber to produce a deep, dark quality of exceptional harmonic balance, but not so large that it lacks projection.The Caravan Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece has become one of the profession's most popular alternatives for "classical" performance on soprano saxophone.
Sopranino Saxophone Mouthpiece
Introduced in late July 2014, the Caravan Sopranino Saxophone Mouthpiece is a premium mouthpiece that features two especially significant design characteristics: (1) The tone chamber is a little larger compared to most other modern sopranino saxophone mouthpieces, providing for a more mellow tone and much less tendency toward stridency, while not so large as to make the pitch center too low; and (2) The mouthpiece body is the same diameter as the Caravan soprano saxophone mouthpiece, hence a standard soprano saxophone mouthpiece ligature fits it; and the table, facing curve, and tip are sized to fit a standard soprano saxophone reed, so reed and ligature issues are greatly simplified.
Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece
The Caravan Large Chamber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece is one of the most harmonically well–balanced and responsive open-chamber alto mouthpieces available. It produces a dark “classical” sound, yet the tone chamber is slightly smaller than many of the pre–World War II open–chamber mouthpieces that many players today find too restrictive and “tubby” sounding.
Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece
The Caravan Medium Chamber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece is an open-chamber mouthpiece that produces a nicely balanced dark sound, but not as dark as the large-chamber alto mouthpiece. Wider-than-normal tip and side rails on this mouthpiece enhance tonal homogeneity and smoothness without an excessive increase in blowing resistance.
Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece
The Caravan Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece is a particularly flexible open-chamber mouthpiece that produces a nicely balanced dark "classical" tone quality yet has plenty of projection. From beautiful, deep low-register tones to pleasant upper-register tones that avoid the typical "whining" quality of other mouthpieces, this is one of the finest tenor saxophone mouthpieces available.
C-Tenor ("C-Melody") Saxophone Mouthpiece
Introduced in the summer of 2014 in response to multiple inquiries and requests, the Caravan C-Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece represents a modern open-chamber mouthpiece produced to complement vintage C-tenor saxophones (commonly referred to as "C-melody" saxophones). Thousands of these instruments were produced in the U.S. (most in Elkhart, Indiana) prior to 1930, and many of them are still being used in various settings today. (This C-tenor mouthpiece is designed to use a regular Bb tenor saxophone reed.)
Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece
The Caravan Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece is a modern manifestation of the vintage large-body open-chamber mouthpiece, producing a dark, harmonically well-balanced sound without being stuffy and restrictive.
NOTE: This large vintage-style hard-rubber mouthpiece requires a ligature with a circumference of nearly 5 inches. If you need a ligature for this mouthpiece, the properly sized Rovner ligature is available on this web site.
Bass Saxophone Mouthpiece (Specialty Facing)
This is an add-on option for a special refacing of the Caravan baritone saxophone mouthpiece to convert it into a bass saxophone mouthpiece. This option may be used only by a customer purchasing a Caravan baritone saxophone mouthpiece at the same time.
AVAILABILITY: A few of these specially hand-faced mouthpieces for Bass Saxophone are normally kept in stock and are available for immediate shipping, no delays.
