My Go-To Mouthpiece

Comments about Vandoren B40 Series Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

I'm pleasantly impressed with this clarinet mouthpiece. I have the traditional profile. I'm an adult clarinet doubler moving up from an intermediate mouthpiece...it was one recommended by my professor. Wonderful tone right 'out-of-the box' and I am able to use a slightly softer reed than usual for longer endurance. Pairs very nicely with my Buffet clarinet.

Comments about Vandoren B40 Series Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

I have played on this mouthpiece for a long time, and now I'm searching for a new mouthpiece. I think this mouthpiece has a warm and inviting tone that lots of people would love, but it lacks the projection I want, and it also is quite air resistant. I actually bought a Hite M mouthpiece few weeks ago and have compared the B40 and Hite M. B40 has a darker, warmer tone, but it lacked projection, it was relatively air resistant, and it made me squeak a lot of times (this probably is my fault). Hite M has a brighter tone that I don't really like (it might be a match with my Vandoren Optimum Ligature), but it has a more projection and volume I love. Easy emission of air helps me play with more freedom. All these results I listed are from my amateurish embouchure and playing skills. Neither of the two mouthpieces fully satisfied me.

Comments about Vandoren B40 Series Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

Recommended by several Pro Clarinetists for my students, I got one for myself and was amazed at the projection and quality of sound. Every student that gets one improves almost over night. Can't say enough good about it.
