 Re: BD5 mouthpiece

“Vandoren designs mouthpieces that are compatible with their reeds. Anything contrary would be stupid.”

“The wide rails, I think, are just an attempt to darken the sound.”

Yes, the BD5 rails that are wider than Vandoren reeds on purpose (design choice), but why? Is it just to ensure the BD5 is relatively darker when used with lots types of reeds, including Vandoren. If this is the case it seems you’d get the darkest sound possible with any Vandoren reed on a BD5, as you’d maximise rail width with any of their reeds.

I’m sure it’s all more complicated than this.
