Vandoren 5RV Eb Clarinet Mouthpiece
When trying to make everything work at its most efficient, reed choice has a big part to play. Usually when looking at compatible reeds for your mouthpiece, a narrow tip opening work best with a harder reed and a wider tip opening a softer one. The 5RV model with its specifications would be best suited to stronger reed choices; a 3-4 strength reed would be a great choice (See below for Vandoren’s reed recommendations).
There is an extensive range of models developed by Vandoren, to suit many different styles of playing depending on what you are looking for. Slight differences between the models mean that there is plenty of choice and you can get a mouthpiece that has the projection, articulation and comfort you are after. Prioritising musician’s individual likes and needs when playing their chosen mouthpiece.
