When it comes to Mouthpieces,
we do it all


The JJ Babbitt Company, Inc. is one of the world's largest and oldest manufacturers of mouthpieces for clarinet and saxophone. We produce thousands of mouthpieces in a variety of styles. These are sold internationally to a wide customer base that includes instrument manufacturers, students, professional musicians, and distributors.

We're one of few mouthpiece manufacturers to molding and vulcanizing our hard rubber in-house. This gives us complete control over the quality of our rubber and of our finished products. We continuously improve woodwind mouthpieces to deliver what players want and need. It's why all JJ Babbitt lines of hard rubber mouthpieces are the finest you can buy. We also use 24k gold-plated brass and stainless steel.

History


For 100 years, the jj Babbitt Company, Inc. has helped musicians deliver great performances by producing the industry's finest mouthpieces for clarinet and saxophone. No matter what your level or style of play, the family-owned and operated business has what you need to create a sound that is uniquely yours. Since the first mouthpiece order was made in 1919 in the garage of founder Jesse James Babbitt, the company has focused on craftsmanship as the key to progressive mouthpieces. After learning his trade at Buescher Band Instruments in Elkhart, Indiana, Jessie went into business for himself. With the help of his brother, Rollie Babbitt, Jessie's idea became reality.
