In terms of mouthpieces, the Geo M Bundy 3 can be found for about $20 or less, and it's GOLD. Most people won't really need anything better unless they're going pro.
$20? That must be a typo...

I know very little about clarinets so I like to read these posts about historic instruments. Its an education. So I googled Thibouville clarinets as I'd not heard the name. And I found this. Listed as a Thibouville, but the logos looks like Buffet crampon!

How many mouthpieces do you have?  Do you have a surplus of different types?  I ask, because depending upon style of music, and the type of clarinet it is fitted to, you can get wildly different sounds from different bores and facings.  I have 15 or so mouthpieces, (not including unplayable collectables) and among them, probably 4 that I love, and another 5 that I rather "like".  None are newer than 1965.  Some are wood, some are wide, and some are modified.  Some are bright and chirpy and tight (Noblet 2V and Robert Marcellus #13) and some are dark and cozy and loose (Harry Pedler, Chedeville)  and all like slightly different strength reeds, etc.

I suppose what I am getting at is that if you have not tried a number of different pieces, you should.  Ultimately, the "right" mouthpiece for you will will help you identify your style, enhance the pleasure you derive from the clarinet, and broaden your understanding of the capability of your instrument, and whether you are fighting technique or just a lousy mouthpiece.
(EDIT:  I see in another thread that Windy has offered you a French vintage MP, which is great.  I'll be interested to hear your reports.)
I have 2mps, the cheap crappy one that came with the clarinet which has a damaged cork, and the Yamaha 4C that I bought to replace it.

So I thought I'd have a go at playing with the register key pressed. I soon discovered that the high notes need a bit more work and beyond a certain point I get no sound. Stronger reed for the higher notes?
I was using a very tight embouchure here with a Legere 2.5 reed.

I don't think rubber is porous. Its structure is drastically changed during processing.

Uploading of pictures no longer works for me. I get an error so I have to upload to a separate server like Imgur then link to it.

Thanks Dibbs. I did read that article and acted upon it. See my follow up video above (Jumpin)
