Vandoren - reeds, mouthpieces, ligatures and accessories for clarinet and saxophone



It has been a fantastic journey since I started playing on the new BD 5 mouthpiece. It has all the necessary aspects for the essential clarinet playing. This mouthpiece will help you to achieve a great tone, crisp articulation and an amazing intonation throughout all registers. BD 5 is a real diamond that will make your playing shine! 💍💫
