Vandoren 5RV Lyre 88 Ebonite Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece
This ebonite mouthpiece is very similar to the 5RV so is great for student clarinet players. It is responsive and easy to control in all registers, which makes it perfect for symphonic, and chamber music.
Vandoren mouthpieces are ideal for the advancing player looking for an affordable, yet professional level, mouthpiece. They are machined from hard rubber to ensure accuracy and consistency making them a great upgrade. Vandoren produce one of the largest selections of mouthpieces, offering over 30 different models for Bb clarinet alone. Having such an extensive range to choose from, clarinetists have the freedom to pick the optimal mouthpiece for their individual needs.
The ''Profile 88'' beak profile gradient is more gentle than the traditional design, so allows the player greater flexibility of movement and position, and therefore enhanced comfort and articulation.
The 5RV Lyre model has a more open tip and slightly longer facing than the traditional 5RV. The longer facing makes it possible to play harder reeds which create a richer/ darker more centered tone. It offers a responsive sound that is easy to control in all registers and is particularly favoured by symphonic and chamber musicians.
