Manufacturer's Descriptions
"The M13 offers many of the characteristics of older American mouthpieces which are so widely sought after. The M13 permits easy blowing with harder reeds and produces a rich, dark, centred sound. Response is particularly sensitive."

"Slightly more open than the M13, the M13 Lyre permits easy blowing with harder reeds and produces a rich and centred sound. Recommended for chamber and symphonic music."

"The M15 enables you to play strong reeds with a great blowing ease. Exceptional sonority. The musician can easily achieve a colourful spectrum of sound."

"The world-famous 5RV is the professional standard by which all others are measured."

"The 5RV Lyre is responsive, easy to control in all registers, excellent for students. For symphonic and chamber music."

"The M30 is designed to produce more flexibility, incorporating a very long facing and large tip rail to produce a mouthpiece similar in sonority to the B40, with easier sound production qualities."

"The B40 Lyre shares many qualities of the landmark B40. The perfect blend of round sound and great tone colour. Excellent sound production, especially in the upper register."

"The B40 is designed to use soft reeds without sacrificing the sound quality of a harder reed (centred and compact)."
