The Vocalise line of clarinet mouthpieces from Backun are designed in collabortation with the World Renowned clarinet performer, educator, and craftsman Richard Hawkins. Hawkins and Backun have truly created a remarkable mouthpiece with a fantastic tonal ring and clarity. With three separate models, there is a mouthpiece for every level player in every playing style and situation.
R Model: Close Opening / Short Facing- A great option for younger players stepping up to a nicer mouthpiece. The R is characterized with an evenness and focus of sound that sings with ease. It allows a player to precisely articulate with reduced effort and great clarity.
G Model: Medium Opening / Medium Facing - The all around mouthpiece. The G model has a round tonal complexity that is very even. It smooths out interval connections as needed. Great for any playing style.
H Model: Open Opening / Large Facing - The largest opening and facing offering in the Vocalise line up. The H has a smooth yet dark tone. It provides cushion and great flexibility throughout all registers of the clarinet. A mouthpiece that gives as much as it takes, it requires an ample amount balanced breath support paired with a great passion for performance.
