Vandoren B46 Profile 88 Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece
The Vandoren B46 Profile 88 Bb clarinet mouthpiece is a mouthpiece specifically designed for musicians who play both clarinet and saxophone. This universal mouthpiece can be used for playing all genres of music and lends itself especially well for the symphonic player looking for a slightly bigger tip opening. The added advantage of this model, is its profile 88 beak. This altered beak design allows for a more comfortable playing position.
This versatile mouthpiece has a medium length facing, this mouthpiece is a great all-rounder and would be a good one to try, especially if you have tried the B45 and found it a bit too open.
In order for the B46 Profile 88 mouthpiece to work to its best, the reed strength chosen needs to be soft enough to allow the air to flow freely through the mouthpiece. Vandoren recommend a reed strength between 2.5 and 3.5+ to work with this mouthpiece and make it respond to its optimum.
- Tip Opening – 117+
- Facing Length – Medium
