Mouthpiece Structure

Tip opening: the distance between the reed tip and the end of the mouthpiece. Measured at the tip, typically described as narrow (small), medium or open (large).
Facing: the various dimensions that together are the platform upon which the reed vibrates.
Facing length: the distance over which the reed flexes during vibration, typically described as short, medium or long.
Baffle: the area just behind the reed tip that exerts control upon the airstream, typically described as high (accentuating upper partials in the sound) or low (bringing out lower partials).
Chamber: the space behind the baffle where the sound develops, typically described as small, medium or large.
Throat: the transition between the chamber and the bore.
Bore: the area within the mouthpiece leading into the instrument itself.
Beak: the angle of the 'top' of the mouthpiece and the resting position for the upper teeth. The angle of the beak varies between different manufacturers and a player may feel more comfortable with a higher or lower angle of the beak. For B♭ Clarinet, Vandoren offer a choice.
