I would say that for most clarinet and saxophone players they should strongly consider Vandoren mouthpieces as their first professional piece. They're well made and readily available.

I agree with Vandoren as they are high quality and available at most local music stores. The only problem is the daunting list of mouthpieces they have available.I would say that for most clarinet and saxophone players they should strongly consider Vandoren mouthpieces as their first professional piece.

Trying to keep the threads mostly clean for beginners.Gandalfe said:On clarinet I like the Hite (very reasonably priced) and more expensive models.
I'm glad I Googled.Believe it or not Bundy hard rubber mouthpieces are VERY good, and affordable.
I'm using a 4C right now, it's what I've always had and I'm just now getting into looking at new mouthpieces. Do you know what Vandoren mouthpiece it is a copy of? I get a really warm sound on mine but I can't put all my air through it and I almost have to articulate early to be in time, which as I've read reviews of mouthpieces on here, seems to be something that can be affected by which mouthpiece you use. I just don't want my sound to get worse, as I've been playing for seven years on this 'piece, and people have told me that I have a really good sound for being on a student mouthpiece.
The best way to upgrade your granddaughter's mouthpiece would be to work with her instructor if at all possible. There are some (see below) very fine and reasonably prices mouthpieces that would be a huge step up to the mouthpiece that typically comes with a student instrument.As to helping my granddaughter, would it really be a recommendation that I look for a better mouthpiece for her Étude Bb clarinet? This will be her 3rd year, next year, in clarinet..
