Difference of rails and openings between 101 and 102 mouthpieces
The mouthpiece on the right is the 102 with the wide rails. The table is fairly straight giving you ample room to set the reed. The wide rails promote a darker tone. The contour of the rails and table of the 101 (on the left) promote the resistance needed for the softer reeds. The thin tip rail features quick response and clarity. Both mouthpieces share the same window.
Each mouthpiece is inspected, play tested, and hand finished by our own master craftsmen to create the best possible combination of tone, volume, and flexibility.
