Of course, we don't need to tell you that wicker is important for both the playability and the sound of a clarinet. As a result, Vandoren has developed a large number of different sizes of wicker, to meet every wish! After all, each player is different and has his or her own preference of the reeds. These White Master wicker have a narrower and thinner cut than the Black Master wicker. Thanks to this shape it is very well suited for mouthpieces with the German 'Oehler' system. The White and Black master are mainly designed to meet the needs of German and Austrian clarinetists.
