    Comments about Vandoren BD5 Black Diamond Traditional Ebonite Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

    I have been playing on my Selmer HS* for 40 years. I use Vandoren reeds and this was on a flyer in the box. It intrigued me so I thought I would give it a try. From the moment I started to play I realized that this was one of the best investments I had ever made. The tone quality, the control, the jump over the break, all were so significantly improved immediately. I did purchase a box of the V21 reeds and they do make a difference. Highly recommend this mouthpiece if you are looking to sharpen things up. I play in our Church and the first time I played people noticed a difference. My duet partner said it sounded like a whole new instrument. Well worth it and so very pleased.

    Comments about Vandoren BD5 Black Diamond Traditional Ebonite Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

    I got this one, supposedly "European pitch" because the American pitch one (13) was very flat. I had ato use a short barrel which caused other problems. This is not much better. Good sound but the throat tones are still flat.

      Comments about Vandoren BD5 Black Diamond Traditional Ebonite Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

      I've played second clarinet in the San Jose Symphony ( now Symphony Silicon Valley) since 1965 and this is by far the best , most consistent mouthpiece that I have ever owned. Other players in the wind section noticed it within two seconds when I started to warm up and wanted to know about it and play it. Bravo!!!!

      Love that Black Diamond 5 Mouthpiece

      By

      Comments about Vandoren BD5 Black Diamond Traditional Ebonite Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece:

      The BD5 mouthpiece has improved my control over the high register and my volume and tone over all three registers. It works well with Fibracell reeds that I now use. I love it. But be sure not to order the "Series 13" version unless you play a Buffet Series 13 instrument. For other instruments order the Classic version, or you may find the throat tones seriously flat.
