+1 Heath, you've given a great thorough answer. I've got a strong background in theory, but only in the classical realm. You've put together a great list here.

@PSU oh awesome, that sounds like a wonderful situation. Have you tried calling them? I bet you'd be able to carry it on if you're sure to be on a larger plane. Might also help just asking their advice too. Let me know how it goes for you!

@Victor, I'm assuming the mechanics will differ slightly depending on the maker. Lots of times, things like this are under patent and so can't be copied exactly from piano maker to piano maker.

Can you be more specific with what you mean by grade? Do you mean grade level in school? grade level on piano?

comment Bass Clarinet: Rubber vs Plastic Mouthpiece?
I play on a Selmer C*. But I've also tried some handmade bass clarinet mouthpieces which I like a lot. Most clarinet mouthpieces are made of hard rubber.
