 Re: BD5 mouthpiece
Author: Kalashnikirby

The BD5 debate (or mpc debate in general) has quite heated up, I feel. No matter what others say about Vandoren mpcs, they’re reasonable being now almost half the price of what „decent“ makers ask for.

But the main reason I post in this thread: According to my new teacher, the BD5 is a Playnick B2 copy!! Come to think of it, that only makes sense, but I can’t quite see what lead to his claim, nor did I think they share the same measurements. Though I could imagine the tonal concepts are similar.
Truth be told, I’m neither a fan of the BD5 or the B2 or whatever it’s called nowadays; then again, the dynamics and projection are really solid on these, I couldn’t deny that.
Again, my ongoing mpc search has only proven that I can deem myself lucky to still own a Viotto and a more solid examplar of the B40, because they WORK, and some of the more modern appraised mpcs don’t. That is to say, for me. Nevertheless, the BD5 has something about it that justifies it’s current immense popularity. It’s probably still cheaper to chose one and have a bit of work done to it than to pay 250€ for a Playnick, which also has some variance to it..

Best regards
Christian
