Mouthpiece Vocalice CG Bass Clarinet

The vocalice CG has the features that i were looking for. Better projection with darker sound and eaiser to play the sttacatos and legattos without losing the tone in my bass clarinet. I am really happy because the decision i made when bouth this mouthpiece has left me 100% conviced that was the best decision. The next step is buying a vocalice CG for clarinet Bb.

It Sounds Lovely

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.

Fantastic

A primeira impressão com a boquilha CG Vocalise para Clarinete Baixo foi ótima. Depois de algumas semanas a tocar com esta boquilha posso confirmar o que senti no início. Som enorme e cheio de harmónicos. Grande projeção e muito fácil como emissão e flexibilidade. Grande afinação. Altamente recomendado
