I purchase a 1990's R13 and in the case was a Richard Hawkins (Zinner Blank) clarinet mouthpiece. It really plays really well with very little resistance. This piece is hand signed Richard Hawkins. What's the word on Hawkins pieces. I think this one is a keeper for me.

Hi A Greene, I play Richard Hawkins MP's on clarinet and like them a lot. Is there a capital letter R or S or B stamped on it? B is an smoother quieter piece good for chamber music for example, while the R facing is louder and asks a little more control from the player. Great find!

There you have it, indeed. A Greene doesn't want to tell us anything about his Hawkins mpc! Huph.

He has a fairly nice website. The B is supposed to be brighter than the R. B is based on a Ched and R a Ched/Kaspar hybrid and darker than the B.

I sold the original piece. It was marked "S" and just ordered a "B" model. Richard Hawkins answered my e-mails within 5 minutes. That's customer service.

This is another occasion for me to look at Hawkins mouthpieces :)
tempted to buy one sometimes...
but I would choose the R instead of B
It seems they are great mouthpieces
