Neckpieces act as a bridge for the two-piece slide of bass clarinet necks. This affects the vibration and works for the player to improve sound production. As a result, the sound becomes significantly fuller and more even across the range of the bass clarinet. The response of the instrument also feels more centered, controlled, and even. It really has a remarkable impact for such a simple piece!
The Standard profile offers a larger, open, more robust quality of sound. The Hourglass profile offers a more nimble response and focused tone quality. The Cutaway version is meant for necks that have a screw on the neck assembly, such as the Kessler or older Buffet bass clarinets. If you have an irregular brand, use the contact page to ensure the measurements will provide a proper fit.
Neckpieces are currently available in 3D Blackwood that will not change dimensions/fit over time due to the nature of the material. They are currently available for Buffet Prestige and Tosca bass clarinets, Royal Polaris and Firebird bass clarinets, and Kessler Low C bass clarinets.
