Vandoren used to make and sell 2RV.Now they do not.I had one.Very small tip opening(smaller than 5RV).Gustav Langenus writes in the book-III of his exercise series that these long facing mouthpieces have peculiar characteristics of intonation. As the general tendency of clarinets playing in pp makes the sound sharp.Long facing mouthpieces have stronger tendency of this phenomena.But I liked it. Its sounds have more focus than B45.If you like long facing ones,B40 is another choice.This is designed by Guy Deprus(not sure of spelling) of ex-proffessor of Paris Conservatoir.
If you find 2RV,it is an old gem when Vanroren craftmanship was better than today I believe.
As present Vandoren mouthpieces' tables are not perfectly flat,I sand them.with sandpaper patched on glass.
