Vandoren, founded in 1905, is one of the most popular makers of mouthpieces and reeds for clarinet and saxophone in the world. Founded by Eugene Van Doren, a clarinetist for the Paris Opera, the company was taken over by his son, Robert Van Doren in 1935. In 1967, Bernard Van Doren, grandson of Eugene, took over the company. During this time period, the company started making its most famous mouthpiece for clarinet, the B45. At present day, Vandoren remains a prominent and respected manufacturer of reeds and mouthpieces.
