Best Clarinet Mouthpieces in 2020



Vandoren CM1405 BD5 Series 13 Black Diamond Ebonite Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece Review:


It came in good time and is great! Works perfect, I have used it for over a year and is as good as new. I have been playing clarinet for almost 10 years and this was a great step up, for my music study in college. A great mouthpiece for intermediate level players and could be great for someone in high school. It produces really good tone quality, when paired with the correct reed, and gives me that warm tone quality I've been looking for. Vandoren makes great stuff, I highly recommend :)



WINGKIND Alto/Tenor Saxophone & Clarinet Mouthpiece Cushions Patches Pads, 0.8mm Black (8 pieces) Review:


I ordered these to replace pads installed by an excellent woodwind technician 5 years ago on my A and Bb clarinets. I'd finally worn those out (they needed replacing 2 years ago). I found these WINGKIND pads to be a little too large for my needs - but I was easily able to trim them to size using scissors. After several weeks of playing with them, I'm pretty happy. They are so inexpensive I can replace them if/when they wear out. They provide right cushioning and my tone is not impacted (I'm a clarinetist in a symphony).



D’Addario Reserve Mouthpiece Patches, [Black] 5-Pack Review:


I bought this (rather than the black patches) because I use a D’Addario Sandstone Marble mouthpiece and I didn’t want to hinder the aesthetics of it.
As far as patches go, I have had no regrets with these mouthpiece patches. I like the firmness of the material, “anchoring” my upper teeth (for lack of a better term) for more pleasant playing. Not to mention these are relatively inexpensive. I don’t have anything bad to say! I would definetely suggest this especially if you have a mouthpiece that’s visually aesthetic (like metal or marbled mouthpieces)



WINGKIND Alto/Tenor Saxophone & Clarinet Mouthpiece Cushions Patches Pads, 0.8mm Black (16 pieces) Review:

Vandoren CM4158 M13 Lyre 13 Series Profile 88 Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece Review:


I’ve been playing the clarinet for over 13 years now. Since that time I’ve acquired a lot of mouthpieces. I’ve played on every vandoren mouthpiece available and many more expensive mouthpieces. I even own a couple customs mouthpieces refaced to my preference. It amazes me how I always go back to the M13 lyre. The same mouthpiece I used all throughout high school. I definitely recommend this mouthpiece, or other more closed mouthpieces over something open like the B45. Open mouthpieces often lead to biting and other bad habits. My M13 lyre works perfectly with my ridenour G1 Bb clarinet and my Selmer series 9* A clarinet. I’ve used it in jazz, concert band, marching band, and orchestra. Projection is never a problem. I will say you need to replace your mouthpiece after at most every 3 years. The reed wears down the facing from constant vibration from playing and the mouthpiece begins to change and not play correctly. Especially since this wear is often lopsided on the facing, making it harder and harder to find good reeds.



J&D Hite H111 Premiere Bb Clarinet Mouthpiece Review:


I want to start by saying sorry on the delay of writing this. my daughter I got 18 months ago. There is reason I waited to review this item. My daughter plays clarinet year around (Marching band,pep band, symphonic band, honors band, solo competitions,etc) so it gets worked out almost daily . She knows her stuff when it comes to brands (she runs a certain brand of reeds, and her certain brand of clarinet). She's VERY happy with her clarinet set up. she insisted on a J and D Hite. I got her that as a gift 18 months ago. It's still hanging in there 18 months later and HEAVY use. I'd recommend J and D Hite to most any clarinet player. my daughter seems to be the expert when it comes to brands and how it should sound. if she says it sounds good then it sounds good . I'm just the first bank of Dad :)



Glory Clarinet Mouthpiece Kit with Ligature,one Reed and Plastic Cap~black, Click to See More Colors Review:


If you're just looking for a beginner mouthpiece then this is a great buy. It's cheap, comes with a ligature and cap which the Yamaha mouthpiece I originally purchased didn't, and it fits fine on a beginner b flat clarinet. It even comes with the reed shown in the picture although it's definitely a cheapy. If your kid is just starting out then there's no need for a more expensive mouthpiece until you know they're going to stick with it. You can always upgrade later.



Replacement Pyrex Glass Mouthpiece for Dr Dabber Boost | Fits Most 510 H3Nails - By NTC Review:


It's not a bad replacement. I have a Dr. Dabber Boost Black Edition and needed a new glass piece. This one is obviously not perfect. I can see slight glass imperfections like a warp or dent but over all it fits perfectly and for the price I'd buy another when I need it. Came quicker than it said it would, too.



Selmer Clarinet Mouthpiece (77113) Review:


My son broke the mouthpiece on his 50-year-old clarinet (his grandmother's), so we were nervous about whether we'd be able to get a new one. Based on our research it looked like this one would work, so we went with it. It works great! His clarinet sounds great once again; in fact, we think it sounds better than before! (As a funny story: Apparently it's the same mouthpiece brand and style that was broken on his old clarinet; our theory is that it had been broken sometime in the past half-century and replaced.)
