Sepia Tone Balance

The Sepia Tone Balance is designed for classical clarinetists.  This mouthpiece exists to find the balances between both a bright and dark tone, and between a beautiful sound and ease of blowing.  It features a slightly brighter tone and lower blowing resistance than the Sepia Tone Will while remaining rich and beautiful across all ranges.  Music is a balance, find it with the Gottsu Sepia Tone Balance.

With the release of Gottsu’s new sliding ligature, the Balance has been updated with a Marble version that is paired with the ligature.  Grooves cut parallel to the table allow for the ligature to slide securely into place.  A small hump has been introduced to the beak, which improves playability with the sliding ligature.  The sliding ligature itself is made from vintage brass and features a unique “underscrew” design, which evenly secures the reed in place.  With the sliding ligature, the Balance Marble gains an incredibly light and responsive feel.
