The Vandoren M13 Clarinet Mouthpiece produces a rich, colorful sound and a very precise response which meets every demand. This model is only available in the 13 Series i.e. 440 HZ.
Standard and Lyre
Most Vandoren mouthpieces have a ‘lyre’ and standard version. The best way to think about it is that these are essentially the same mouthpiece but with a slightly different flavour. The tip opening is sometimes more open or closed on the lyre version.
On the M13, the ‘lyre’ version has slighty larger tip opneing and a shorter facing. Vandoren says the lyre version is, “Easier to play in the upper register. Its facing gives it a particularly pure sound.”
