Mouthpieces Crystal

metal mouthpiece on a clarinet?

I've played the clarinet for almost 6 years now, i recently got a new wood clarinet. I enjoy playing jazz, and I know they sell metal mouthpieces that have a brighter sound. could you explain it a little more? thanks

Metal mouthpieces work for jazz on sax because a sax is metal - it doesn't sound so great on a clarinet. It becomes way too "metallic" in tone on clarinet.

You'll find that many jazz (especially dixieland) clarinetists use crystal mouthpieces. Crystal accomplishes that same brightness issue but has a timbre more characteristic of a clarinet. The only huge problem with crystal is that it's very fragile. One bump (not to mention a drop) and it's garbage.

You'll also find that many jazz clarinetists prefer their crystal with a very open face and a very soft reed. The combination gives you more control for things like bends and scoops. Try some before you spend that sort of money - a really open mouthpiece takes an awful lot of control even with a soft reed.
