Rascher mouthpiece question

5487 Views 9 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  kingsaxello
I have often heard that Mr. Rascher said that he was opposed to the "new" smaller chambered mouthpieces being used for classical music. Now, I understand that he said this in lessons, master classes, etc, but I have also heard that he wrote an article about this or gave a speech. I've never been able to find any concrete info about this, so does anyone have any information about where/when this happened, or was it just a philosophy that he espoused?

Rascher used an original Buescher ligature and simply turned it upside-down. I have recently acquired an original silver Buescher ligature and I really like it. Whether or not you believe that material affects tone, I noticed a better, freer resonance with this lig than with my Rovner Mk. III. Also, I think it's cool to try to play on all-original equipment! All I need now for my Buescher is an original silver end-plug!
