i am also about to buy a new mouthpiece but i dont know which ones are good or bad
everyone has different opinions like some people say vandorens are really bad but some people say its the best
i am deciding whether i should get a vandorens b45 for $150 or a wooden clarinet for $450(if i sell my old plastic one)
but i think those people were ripping me off for teh mouthpiece so can you also give me a price range the mouthpieces?

Nothing is better than an M30, but that's just me. Try a bunch. In my opinion, M30's are better than the 45's.

Try...
M30
M15
B45
5RV
(All Vandorens)

You can find them online for about 75-85...but you will have to pay markup for retail...I think they'll run about 125.

I just picked up a David Hite Premiere. I liked it better than some I have that are a lot more expensive. It's just really comfy. I think it was only like $20 too.

I would avoid crystal. They are mainly for jazz and don't have a rounded tone meant for classical.

About the Hite's, they are good for young students, but I would avoid them for anyone above a beginner. Unless, of course, you need something to march on. I wouldn't march on my M30. I personally march on a Yamaha 4C, but a Hite would suffice otherwise.

Again, TRY AS MANY AS YOU CAN. Every person is a little different and a mouthpiece that works for one may not work for another. Certain guidelines apply of course.

The 201's are pretty solid, but I don't think they can come CLOSE to an M30. I personally find B45's hard to play on, so I think I would prefer a 201 to a B45, but if a B45 is working for you and you are happy with it, stick with that.

The 2RV is a nice mouthpiece though I believe they haven't been made for a while (newer name is the 5RV)

here's some compiled info on Vandoren mpcs

and Selmer too

There's a mouthpiece review for a 2RV and B45 on page 2 on this site

The key to any mouthpiece is determining what tonal qualities you are searching for, and of course a reed match AND your embouchure.

Ifyou are more of a student then I wouldn't worry about those minute intricacies at this time and a B45 would be a good mpc to play on (as a Hite Premier also). There are so many choices out there and everyone has their personal preference.
