Product Information

THIS IS AN EX DEMO MOUTHPIECE. Played in store but in as new condition and is in perfect playing order, normally sold at £117.95

Vandoren has designed the 13 Series mouthpiece range specifically for American clarinettists using A440 pitch. It can however be successfully be used in other areas, notably many Buffet R13 players like to use the 13 series to lower the pitch slightly.

The 13 series all have the Profile beak design which has a shallower angle than the standard Vandoren series mouthpieces. This is quite personal to the player and we recommend testing both standard and profile beak shapes to see what suits your embouchure best.

The M13, M13 Lyre, M15 and M30 were originally designed to compliment the 13 Series, however Vandoren now offer other standard facings in the 13 Series bore design to play at A440.

  • 13 Series is designed to play at A440.
  • The B40 has the same facing as a B45 but with a wider tip rail.
  • B40 Specs: .119.5 (1/100mm) tip opening and medium long facing length.
  • All 13 Series mouthpieces have the shallower Profile beak shape.
  • Hand finished in France to the highest tolerances using quality hard rubber (ebonite).
  • Vandoren Code: CM4078
