Berg originally made his name as a professional musician and whilst not working, he could be found making reeds in Archer Street London. In 1945, he designed and manufactured a range of ebonite mouthpieces for clarinet and saxophone which later evolved into a range made out of stainless steel for an increased lifespan. Although Berg died in 1972, his name lives on. Today, we can offer a wide variety of mouthpieces in various different materials and styles.
