A worthwhile investment for a beginner clarinettist
Andrew Mac, 20.10.2020
I bought this mouthpiece for my son, who had just taken up clarinet. The mouthpiece that came with his Buffet Prodige produced a poor tone; the Vandoren BD4 transformed the sound, giving it more of a true clarinet quality. The Prodige is not an expensive instrument; it was definitely worth investing in a good quality mouthpiece. The only problem is that leaving it in the case with the clarinet, the clarinet keys started to tarnish. The shop I bought the clarinet from had experienced this before, and advised me to keep the mouthpiece in a pouch, which resolved the issue.

BD5 is for students. BD4 is for professionals.

Me coming from BD5.... Why Vandoren didn't release this before BD5????????? Everyone who plays BD5 should switch to BD4!! Same comfort, much better articulation, fits V12 3.5 reeds(like BD5), double sound projection, highly recommended!!!!!!!!

prima
Horst D., 21.07.2021
wie bei anderen vandoren mundstücken,so ist auch das BD4 gut spielbar
der erzeugte ton ist dunkel
die flexibilität mittelmässig
von der besonderen leichtigkeit der ansprache merke ich eher wenig
die jazzer werden ein anderes mundstück wählen

Förbättrad BD5
Mantorpsblåsaren, 07.07.2020
Detta munstycke är det jag använder oftast. Jag började med BD5, men efter att jag fick BD4?an är det bara när bladen mjuknar att det kommer till användning. BD4?an låter nästan likadant, har lättare attack och är mera användbar med V21 hårdhet 3, amatör som jag är. Låga oktaven är inte bättre, men efter oktavskiftet börjar det rocka rejält. Du får en helt annan kontroll och fyllig ton i de två övre oktaverna.
Med La Voz MH blad föredrar jag en M30 lyra, som är ett av de bästa av de tidigare Vandoren munstycken. La Voz bladen är framtagna för jazz och något övertonfattiga. M30 lyra munstycket passar med lite hårdare blad och är mera diskant i tonen. På BD4 och BD5 låter La Voz MH bladen tamt varemot Vandorens egna blad passar perfekt.
Black Diamond är steget mot att införa tyska klarinettens fylligare klang i Boehm klarinetten, som är det smidigare av instrumenten.
