OVERVIEW

Responsive and easy to control in all registers.

Responsive and easy to control in all registers. Like the 5RV, Vandoren 5RV Lyre Bb clarinet mouthpiece is an excellent choice for the advancing student or for general playing. With a slightly more open tip, the Vandoren 5RV Lyre takes a slightly lighter reed, giving the player more flexibility and a more open sound. It also has a longer facing than the 5RV.

    Comments about Vandoren 5RV Lyre Series Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

    I'm a pretty good sax player in high school, and I may be young but I can tell when a mouthpiece is good. I borrowed a school clarinet and had it for a couple of months. My setup was a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece with a synthetic legere reed 3. I would occasionally mess around on it until today when my teacher let me borrow a 5RV. I got home and blew a note into it and wow, it was so in tune and free blowing. Of course, it may have been my reed but honestly, wow a huge difference.

      As a woodwind doubler, I am able to sound like me with ease. I do not have to work as hard on getting notes to speak or intonation which allows me to focus more on the repertoire. It's a great mouthpiece that I highly recommend.

          Comments about Vandoren 5RV Lyre Series Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

          I purchased this for my wife and she was disappointed the tone and overall performance of it. It wasn't bad, but she expected better tone from it. I was very unhappy with WWBW.com on this purchase as they changed (raised) the charge on my credit card after I had purchased this item. When I spoke to them about it they refused to admit any wrong doing and I had to report it to my bank to get the charge corrected. I won't be making any more purchases from WWBW.com. I should have looked at internet reviews of this company before purchasing from them as the reviews are very bad.

          Excellent Mouthpiece as it has always been!

          Comments about Vandoren 5RV Lyre Series Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

          This is the same model mouthpiece I purchased, ahem, over 20 years ago. Upon talking with others in my clarinet section, I realized that mouthpiece faces wear down over time. I was unhappy with how sharp my tone always was and decided after reading all the descriptions, to purchase the same exact mouthpiece I was currently playing. What a difference! You might think I was being captain obvious, but as a hobbyist who stopped playing for 20 years in the middle somewhere, it had NOT occurred to me that the plastic would wear down over time and with usage. Very happy with the 5RV.

          High notes are more easily played when compared to the mouthpiece that came standard with the beginners clarinet. This mouthpiece is a definite upgrade

          Comments about Vandoren 5RV Lyre Series Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

          The 5RV is a very well mad mouthpiece with a large open tip. The tone quality is nice and rounded and the mouthpiece's versatility gives it a wide range of tones. You get this feeling of precision and control, as advertised It's the world standard mouthpiece for a reason. If you came from a collection of plastic student mouthpieces, like the Hite Premiere, this ebonite mouthpiece may take some time to adjust to. The material is more flexible than plastic, so it takes some time to experiment with your newfound range of tones. You might find the resistance a little awkward at first. Nevertheless, this is a big cut above all plastic mouthpieces that I have tried. Choose this mouthpiece if you play all kinds of music. Otherwise, get some of the more specialized mouthpieces in Vandoren's line. The 5RV can respectably handle them all, but the others are just more suited. Comes in flashy silver box with the mouthpiece secured between two foam cubes. Vandoren packaged just the mouthpiece, so there are no extras, not even a manual.
