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 5JB clarinet mouthpiece is a top choice for any clarinetist or doubler that is interested in playing jazz or just increasing the flexibility of their sound. It plays great with a #2.5 Vandoren reed and features a tip opening of 1.47mm. The facing is long and it is offered in both the Traditional and the Profile 88 beak. It's quite fun to play and every player should have a chance to experience this mouthpiece.
