Vandoren clarinet mouthpieces have defined the ideal clarinet sound for decades. With impeccable intonation, crisp and accurate articulation, and unrivalled response, Vandoren clarinet mouthpieces are preferred by professional clarinetists around the world. The 13 Series is designed to play at A=440.
The goal of the 13 series was to make a mouthpiece of Vandoren quality with the dark and centered sound of the legendary Chedeville mouthpieces that would suit American pitch (440Hz) and the Buffet R13 clarinet, widely used in the United States.
The M13 Lyre is slightly more open than the M13 and is suitable for playing with stronger reeds (3.5-4, and even 4.5 for V12). It is ideal for a darker sound and even intervals. The more open facing makes it easier to play in the upper register, giving it a particularly pure sound.
