More info



Each mouthpiece is polished to a brilliant finish. The final adjustment of the facing is done by staged diamond cutting tools. The tolerances of 4/10,000 of an inch are so small that, to maintain precision, the table is not polished. Each mouthpiece is hand finished at the baffle, walls, and tip rail. Master craftsmen finish and adjust each mouthpiece to surpass the most critical examinations of professional musicians. The mouthpieces are polished one last time (except the facing area) to eliminate marks and imperfections. The Vandoren name is then stamped in gold on the mouthpiece along with the model number.

Polyvalence

J'utilisais d'autres bec d'autres marques + jazz. J'étais a la recherche d'un son plus pur, plus lisse. Avec le V 45 la pureté est la au rdv avec la facilité d'émission en +. Si je veux donner + de grain + d'agressivité au son je peux aussi. Donc avec mes anciens bec plus agressifs je ne pouvais pas donner assez de douceur et de pureté au son, avec celui-ci le son sort tout seul et quand je veux je peux aussi lui donner de la rugosité nécessaire a certains types de musiques.
