Karl Leister at PLAYNICK


The visit of our long-standing client Mr. Leister gave us an excellent feedback on our products and work. Once again we were able to convince with the warm and soft sound quality of our PLAYNICK mouthpieces and with the flexibility to comply with all our client’s wishes.

Our motivation is to meet with the highest requirements regarding quality according to our motto „Serving the best players“.

"The mouthpieces of Nick Kückmeier are charaterised by their warm and soft sound. For me this is a basic requirement for the music of the Classical and Romantic periods. I welcome the development and the quality for clarinetists who are dedicated to preserve the tradition of a special and beautiful clarinet sound.
I wish Nick Kückmeier all the best for further developments."
