Vandoren is one of the most popular and consistent manufacturers of woodwind mouthpieces. They produce a strong range of mouthpieces and accessories that can help improve any players performance. Most of their mouthpieces are made from hard rubber stock.
The "Profile 88" was introduced (in 1988) to offer an alternative to Vandoren's standard beak angle, this beak allows the player to hold the instrument in a different playing position further away from their body.
The "13 Series" was developed for American clarinetists using A440 pitch.
The 7JB clarinet mouthpiece is fairly new, but packs a real punch. Primarily for jazz, this mouthpiece is powerful and quite flexible. It plays best with a soft Vandoren reed, perhaps even as soft as a #1 or #2. Most people think that the 5JB has the widest tip opening in Vandoren's lineup and to that the 7JB says "Hold my beer!" because it's packing a 1.7mm tip opening. The facing is long and it is offered both the Traditional and the Profile 88 beak styles. Try this mouthpiece at your own risk!
