 Vandoren 5JB vs 7JB & Profile 88 vs Traditional
Author: Joel McAllister 
Date:   2017-01-23 02:59

I don't know whether I should go for the 5JB or the 7JB... will the 7JB be too open for me to control? I'm currently using a Vandoren B45•. My plan is to use the [5/7]JB as my jazz mouthpiece and continue using the B45• for classical - would I be better going with traditional or profile 88 (my B45• is not profile 88)? In the future I would like to play both clarinet and sax... Finally, I wouldn't say I have a particularly strong jaw (I'm 15, male, been playing (predominantly classical) clarinet for ~ 5 years intermittently) - is it likely I'll be able to produce significant volume (enough to be able play over many others (inc. loud trumpets :P) in a jazz band) on a 2½ reed with the 5JB/7JB?

Many thanks!
