Vandoren 5RV Lyre Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece
The Vandoren 5RV Lyre Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece was created by Robert Van Doren for Jacques Lancelot. The idea behind it, was to create a mouthpiece that has a more open tip and a slightly longer facing than the 5RV model. With the longer facing, it makes it possible to play stronger reeds and gain richer tonal qualities. In some cases darker timbres, more volume and greater ease and comfort when playing.
Often a popular choice for those who play symphonic and chamber music because of its responsiveness. It is also recommended by many teachers for their students due to its ease of control. The Lyre model is used by many professionals around the world.
With many variations in this model, you are spoilt for choice. From a manufacturer who create so many different models of mouthpiece you should have no trouble finding one that works for you!
