    Comments about Vandoren 5JB Jazz Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

    Used the mouthpiece on a gig last night and loved it. I am primarily a tenor sax player. In the past, everytime I picked up the clarinet, I always felt like I just couldn't get enough air into the many mouthpieces I have used in the past including Fobes, Morgan, and HS**Oval. Going from tenor to clarinet with this mouthpiece was a breeze. The Mitchell Lurie 2 1/2 works very well for me. I am now a happy camper.

    The best reed / mouthpiece combinations

    By

    Comments about Vandoren 5JB Jazz Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

    I have been using 5JB, profile 88, clarinet mouthpieces for many years, using my first regular 5JB at the suggestion of Kenny Davern. When I switched to the profile 88 I found it to better suit my embouchure. I am mainly a New Orleans Jazz musician and the mouthpiece delivers the flexibility and sound that this music requires. Minimal resistance, maximum volume when required yet sweet when softly played. I use Van Doren V12s reeds, 2 and 1/2 strength, where Kenny used 4 strength V12s. I am now in process of testing the new Van Doren 21 reeds, and expect to purchase a 7JB mouthpiece shortly. At 83 years old, I still get a kick out of trying to improve and wholeheartedly recommend dealing with Woodwind - Brasswind for the best service and lowest prices.

    Very nice piece!

    Comments about Vandoren 5JB Jazz Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

    I have used this piece for a couple years now, and it sounds/feels great! Very loud sound for cutting through a traditional swing/dixieland band without amplification, and not too difficult to control once you get used to it. I have a Leblanc Pete Fountain horn and I currently play on Rico Royal #2.5 filed reeds.

    Bigger and Badder !

    Comments about Vandoren 5JB Jazz Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

    Comparing this to a Van Doren B45 and a Selmer S80-115, I can get about 4 to 6 db louder! A big, open sound, lets your clarinet sound like a clarinet, but more of it! If you are used to a small opening, you may find the pitch hard to control. If you are used to an open mouthpiece and want more volume, this is it!

    Versatility

    Comments about Vandoren 5JB Jazz Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

    This mouthpiece affords me the flexibility I need in my diverse musical applications. As a doubler, this mouthpiece projects in a pit as well as in a big band setting. The wide tip opening allows me (saxophone player) to put a lot of air through this mouthpiece and still maintain a beautiful clarinet tone with great intonation. Vandoren got this one right!
