The craftsmen at Vandoren have created a revolutionary new clarinet mouthpiece. Completely redesigned inside and out, the MASTERS line produces a perfect balance of richness, stability and projection. Built without compromise, for those who play without compromise, the Masters mouthpiece is a work of art for creating works of art. The new MASTERS mouthpieces feature a specific bore, a new chamber as well as a new exterior design.
Two models have been developed with facings specific to this series: CL4 and CL5.
They are very easy blowing and have exceptional sound and tuning characteristics.


The CL4 is characterized by a very radiant, clear sound and exceptional intonation. It allows precise, easy blowing and flawless articulation.

The CL5 is characterized by a round, full sound, exceptional intonation and perfect homogeneity and projection.
