 Re: URGENT; Pomarico Crystal MouthPiece

I played a B45 many years ago and later switched to something a bit more closed, but it is a nice mouthpiece for some people. As others have pointed out, it is one of the most open tip mouthpieces in the Vandoren line.

The 3 1/2s might be a slight bit too hard for it, and it's possible that the V21s and V12s aren't the best matches either. It has been my experience that the B45 works best with slightly softer reeds in the 2 1/2 to 3 range. I remember trying to use 3 /2s and 4s on mine, and struggling the whole time.

Before you junk the mouthpiece, try some Vandoren Traditionals. I knew someone who loved his B45, and got nice results using no. 3 Traditionals with it.
