Vandoren 7JB Profile 88 Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece
The Vandoren 7JB Profile 88 Mouthpiece shares the widest tip opening in the entire range from Vandoren. Perfect for solo or ensemble playing. The difference between the two being the angle of the beak. This profile 88 model has a shallower incline increasing comfort when playing. Due to having such a wide tip opening, many players prefer this model as they can still have the freedom of air flowing through you instrument without your jaw feeling wide open.
This mouthpiece works especially well for Jazz, Klezmer and World Music, as well as other genres and is good for doublers playing the saxophone due to the wide tip opening. It is free blowing across the entire range of the clarinet. The combination of wide tip opening and long facing works best with soft reed choices allowing the air to flow with the least resistance.
This is a great mouthpiece for those who are looking for wide dynamic variety, due to the open feel of this piece it is possible to explore the louder dynamics. Often favoured by doubling saxophonists, you can use a similar amount of air when playing the saxophone, allowing you to swap between the two instruments with relative ease.
From a company with the largest selection and variations of mouthpieces on the market, you should have no trouble finding a mouthpiece that will suit you.
- Tip Opening – 170
