Celebrating twenty years, Behn Mouthpieces proudly unveils this new website. Behn's world-class clarinet mouthpieces continue to passionately push new ground by again raising the bar of what is possible from both a playing perspective as well as a manufacturing perspective. Accolades from our twenty year history include Behn’s high-tech, 3-D CNC manufacturing system, Behn’s truly authentic reproduction of golden era Chedeville rod rubber, Behn's 2005 introduction of Vintage Collection mouthpieces, and Behn's revolutionary patented geometry enhancements used in Signature Collection mouthpieces. These impressive achievements represent the culmination of our unrelenting efforts, exhaustive research, and intense drive to make the absolute best mouthpieces in the world!
Since our beginning in 1992, we have invested thousands of hours in the art of clarinet mouthpiece restoration and refacing. During this extensive, artistic adventure, we developed close and personal friendships with many fine clarinetists around the world. And now, raising customer service to a new level, we soar far above the industry with up to lifetime satisfaction guarantees!
Since 2005, Vintage Collection's glorious rubber acoustics and world-class CNC manufacturing system have been benchmarks within the industry. Vintage Collection remains an industry standard because of our unparalleled commitment to resonance, quality, and tonal beauty. And, from our firm and steadfast commitment to progress, we now offer something totally unheard of in the industry; Behn Mouthpieces offers not just one or two designs, but four individual Vintage designs! That's right, Behn is authentically recreating pre-war era Charles Chedeville, Henri Chedeville, Frank Kaspar and little known, golden era gem, Robert designs. Vintage Collection mouthpieces are beautifully designed and artfully sculpted to recreate the beautiful sounds of their forefathers, this is a first in the industry! And that's not all, combined with our custom-ordering feature you can become personally involved in the manufacturing process! You can now select tip opening, facing curvature, rail-thickness, and resistance characteristics to personalize your artistry. There is nothing like it anywhere. Truly ground breaking innovations by Behn Mouthpieces!
Behn’s continuous drive to enhance your playing experience has led us to the pinnacle of our twenty years: Signature Collection. With three patented, totally unique and distinctive designs, they are made to more fully enhance resonance. They will not only surprise you, but they will delight you with their breathtaking playing experience! Behn Signature mouthpieces bring new heights to acoustics and bring new dimensions to your artistry. There is absolutely nothing like it! Made from Behn Proprietary Rod Rubber, Signature Collection combines the very best in imagination, science, and artistry.
Behn Artist Collection mouthpieces utilize Zinner blanks as their source material, which are then enhanced by Behn’s resonance treatments, followed by a finishing process with special attention to eye appealing beauty. What this means to you is that you can affordably experience the Behn difference. Now you can enjoy the sound that has made Zinner famous around the world, combined with the artistic craftsmanship that has made Behn stand out to clarinetists around the world.
