Care and Maintenance

An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.

We recommend you wash your mouthpieces with warm water and mild dishwashing soap and then air dry it on a clean cloth. In classroom and group situations, we recommend the use of the Red Sterisol cleaner for its proven capability to clean, deodorize and sanitize mouthpieces. Please do not immerse your mouthpieces in, or clean your mouthpieces with, isopropyl, or other members of the hydroxyl group of products.

If you need a quality swab, mouthpiece patches, and other cleaning materials, please consider adding a Backun Care Kit to your order.

Note: All New Mouthpieces from Backun are cleaned, disinfected and sterilized for your health and safety.

Vocalise Bass Mouthpiece

This is the 5th MP I've used on my Selmer Privilege bass clarinet and one of my favorites. It has a wider tip opening than my others so took a bit of tweaking my set-up --- a slightly softer Legere Signature reed and a different ligature --- but once I figured that all out, it sounds lovely. Fat, "chocalatey", flexible tone, Clean articulation. Good intonation up and down.

It has been amazing to play in the upper register with so much consistency! I’m still working out which ligature/reed combination I like but overall very happy!

I recommend this product

Incredible projection with a great rich sound.

Most bass clarinet mouthpieces that project get less than a desirable tone quality, while others that get a beautiful sound seem to lack the projection to compete with the brass projection. The Hawkins H is a wonderful bass clarinet mouthpiece that gets wonderful projection while getting a beautiful, characteristic bass clarinet sound. Beautiful in all registers of the instrument. Articulation is clear and precise. At different I have enjoyed playing the Selmer C*, Selmer C**, Vandoren Black Diamond, Pomerico, MoBa, and CG. I loved all of them. The new Vocalise H bass clarinet mouthpiece will remain for a very, very, long time. Plays great on Silverstein Ambipoly bass clarinet and tenor saxophone 3.5 reeds and Vandoren V-12 3,5 reeds. !
