Vandoren M15 Profile 88 Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece
The M15 Profile 88 Bb clarinet mouthpiece was introduced to the Vandoren range in 2000 alongside the traditional M15 model. The Profile 88 model alters the angle of the beak of the mouthpiece to make it less of an incline, which in turn improves the overall comfort of the mouthpiece when playing.
Having a small tip opening with a long facing, this mouthpiece is suited to be played with stronger reeds (Vandoren recommends between 3.5-5). A softer reed choice will not have the stability to allow the air to flow freely through and will not have a deep rich sound, rich in harmonics, that this mouthpiece allows. With the best set up this mouthpiece can offer you a greater freedom of expression.
Along with the colourful spectrum of timbres available, this mouthpiece allows the clarinettist the freedom to explore articulation across the range with ease.
With such a wide and varied selection of mouthpieces available, Vandoren have so many models and some variations of some longstanding gems, you should find something that’ll suit your playing style and needs.
- Tip Opening – 103.5
