Ideal for the orchestral and chamber music player, the B40
Lyre supports a large dynamic range whilst having excellent projection throughout
An adaptation of the popular B40, the B40 Lyre is an easy
blowing mouthpiece, particularly in the upper register, thanks to the
combination of his medium tip opening and longer facing length.
The Lyre symbol refers to an alteration that is been made to
the original model. Although we see different mouthpieces with a lyre within
the Vandoren range, not all of them present the same variation. In this
occasion, the B40 Lyre features a slightly smaller tip opening and a longer
facing than its traditional version allowing more control over the mouthpiece
and great projection.
This mouthpiece is designed with the Profile 88 beak, which refers to the shape of the beak of the mouthpiece giving to the player a more comforting mouth position. In comparison with the traditional mouthpiece, the Profile 88 has a longer beak and smother shaped transition to the chamber.
