Signature trumpet mouthpiece models are ideal for the player who relates to a Bach Style 1C rim but would like a more efficient, consistent piece of equipment.  The MC1 mouthpiece is developed with the classical, business player in mind and produces a full rich tone while maintaining plenty of focus and energy when projection is desired. 
Models include:
  • MC1: An orchestra cup mated with a custom round rim with a diameter of about a 1 Bach.  Flows through a 26 throat and a generous, open backbore.
  • MC Lead:  A solid, low volume cup, mated with a slightly narrower Clodfelter rim, leading to a a tight 27 throat and compressed backbore.  Designed for the classical player who wants to keep the same rim when moving to their lead or pops mouthpiece.
Mr. Clodfelter holds a Bachelor of Music Education Degree from Lenoir-Rhyne College and a Master of Music Degree from the North Carolina School of the Arts.
Mark Clodfelter is an S.E. Shires Performing Artist.
