Product Information

After decades of collecting, observing and crafting mouthpieces for many of the world’s finest artists, Richard Hawkins (celebrated player, educator and craftsman) collaborated with Backun Musical Services to develop a series of mouthpieces with tonal ring and clarity that will change the course of mouthpiece history. 

Designed for all ages and experience levels, the Vocalise Series of B♭ mouthpieces features a model for every player and occasion, all of which belong in your clarinet case. Complex resonance at a reasonable price. These models have become extremely popular here at Dawkes with visiting players choosing them often in 'blind' testing.

G - Medium/Medium (440hz): A medium-faced mouthpiece that combines exceptional evenness and round tonal complexity. The G has a smoother influence on interval connections just where you need it. An all-around mouthpiece for those who prefer medium facings and lengths


Designed at Backun using advanced CAD/CAM software and tested with 3D printing technology, the mouthpieces are crafted from hard rod rubber on a highly advanced nine-axis CNC machine and finished in a unique done-in-one machining program that combines the milling and lathing processes without the need for a second setup or recalibration. This results in an exceptionally consistent mouthpiece that stays true to the original design.


Each mouthpiece helps the player centre articulation, pitch and altissimo, with impeccable ease and consistency of voicing. It is the first mouthpiece of its kind specifically designed to play well on both synthetic and cane reeds, in strengths 2.5 to 4.5.

Backun Vocalise Clarinet Mouthpiece Reviews

Anonymous review via Feefo  -  2022-04-26

Very good mouthpiece, excellent staccato , focused sound, good intonation. For me, I found that the overall sound was slightly restricted and so returned it. It is, however, a highly recommended mouthpiece which would suit many players.

I like these mouthpieces - they have a good resonance and are easy playing.

My previously upgraded mouthpiece had served me well for many years but it was time for a replacement and I could not be happier with my choice of a Backun Vocalise G from Dawkes. I had struggled for a while with the Altissimo register but not anymore. It has wonderful smoothness and a rounded tone to all registers.

I bought this because I own a Backun clarinet. I play French embouchure so use a soft reed. I found that the Vandoren V10 strength 3 works well with this mouthpiece, although recently when used with a Legere European cut 2.75 worked like a dream. Lovely range, easy to blow excellent intonation.

This mouthpiece will be very useful as a backup for the future

Love it. Remarkable. Full sound, flexible and lovely tone. Suits me down to the ground.

I love this mouthpiece! The tone is rich and full and it has hugely improved the sound of my playing.

I ordered two mouthpieces to compare.
This mouthpiece was extremely responsive but I preferred the tone of the G so I returned this mouthpiece for a refund.

With 40 years of experience , of playing the clarinet, I can truly say, the Vocalise is the best mouthpiece I've ever had. It has an easy of playing, tone and intonation that make it such a joy to use.
