Vandoren Java T45... A Terrific Do-All Mouthpiece!

By 

from Bend, Oregon

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Easy To Play
  • Even Intonation
  • Very Versatile Tone

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Works Well In A Variety Of Applications

    Comments about Vandoren Java Series Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    Most musicians who have played Vandoren products know they offer consistently high quality at a genuine value price. The Java T45 sound is just fantastic -- rich, full, and sonorous. It is also rather versatile and is easy to color the tone. It is more controllable and less thunderous than the Jumbo Java pieces. Frankly, it plays as nicely as many of the insanely expensive and trendy boutique mouthpieces I tested.

    The T45 is very reed-friendly and really comes alive with the Vandoren Java Red (file cut) reeds. There is a tendency for some players to use very stiff reeds, but the T45 sounds elegantly full and expressive even in the altissimo range with 2-3 strength reeds. As a professional jazz musician, I really don't want to work any harder than necessary to produce great tone.

    The T45 offers moderate resistance and is rather easy to play. The traditional round chamber, standard baffle and medium facing curve work exceptionally well with the intermediate .093" tip opening. The Java T45 is well suited for either solo or section work and is at home with many musical styles. It is probably one of the best do-all mouthpieces in their product line. In your mouthpiece quest, you might give the Vandoren Java T45 a try.

    Vandoren Quality, Great Price, Rich Tone

    By 

    from Bend, Oregon

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Great Step-Up Piece
    • Superior Quality

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • One Of The Best All-Around Mouthpiece Made

      Comments about Vandoren Java Series Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      The Vandoren Java T45 is one of several mouthpieces I tried during the past couple months. In my search, I tested both tenor & alto Java pieces and found them to offer an elegant and full sound with crisp articulation and moderate resistance. The T45 offers a rich and versatile tone and is a quality piece with a precision finish.

      I've used Vandoren products for many years and find them to be a cut above. Their mouthpieces, reed & ligatures are consistently professional quality and show fine workmanship and solid value. The sonic properties are on par with many of the insanely expensive boutique mouthpieces. All of the Java mouthpieces are quite easy to play and should meet the needs of many if not most contemporary players. I prefer the Java line over the Jumbo Java and favor it over several other model mouthpieces in the Vandoren line.

      I've been playing the larger Java T75 for several years. It offers a huge sound and works well in combo work and for those applications where a moderately bright, out-front sound is desired. In contrast, the Java T45 has a smaller opening with a different facing and provides a somewhat rounder and slightly darker tone. It's a versatile piece that offers some reasonable tone shaping and should fit well with many genres of contemporary music. In my opinion, the Java T45 is one of the best do-all mouthpieces I've played and should be an excellent step-up mouthpiece for the aspiring player.

      I seriously considered the Java T45, but went with the more mellow and subdued qualities offered by the standard Meyer mouthpiece. I was looking for that old school sound and found it with the Meyer. In your own mouthpiece quest, I'd recommend giving the Java T45 a serious try. A versatile and pro-quality piece at a reasonable price.

      Excellent alternative to metal

      By 

      from Selden, NY

      Comments about Vandoren Java Series Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      I was looking for an alternate to my Link metal mp but most of the hard plastic/rubber ones I tried felt too big in my mouth and sounded "stuffy". I had the opportunity to compare the Vandoren T55 and T75 with Otto Link 6 and 6* pieces in the store. The Links were again too stuffy for my tastes, I was looking for something with some of the cutting power of metal, yes still offering a more rounded sounded if I wanted to blow that way. And the Vandorens deliver! I went with the T55 because of its more middle-of-the-road, "all around" versatility. But the T75 is amazing too - it produces an enormous sound, easily competing with the Link metal IMO. These Vandorens are easy to move to from metal mouthpieces, no major adjustment period needed. And they offer more vareity in sound. I'm very glad they invented them!

      Great All Around Mouthpiece

      Comments about Vandoren Java Series Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      I tried several different mouthpieces and the T95 with my H. Couf Tenor is Simply Fun and Magical. Nice combination. My Horn is Naturally Dark so with this mouthpiece it gives it a Full Fat Tone with a nice Jazz Edge to it. Thank You! Tone, Response and Feel were right for me! I've had this mouthpiece for several years now and just love it.

      Comments about Vandoren Java Series Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      This mouthpiece is one of the best I've ever played. It's free-blowing, dynamic and responsive in every register. It is my favorite piece for jazz. The altissimo is effortless with the Java. Mine's a T45, and I use Vandoren Java 3 (green box) reed.

      The last mpc you'll need to buy

      By

      Comments about Vandoren Java Series Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      We all do it. Try this mpc/reed combination, happy for a while then try something else. This mpc isn't chops in a box, but it will let you play to your full potential. Quality is exceptional, very well finished. Tone and intonation are a cut above the rest of the mass produced on the market. I have a Java T95 and find it to be very easy blowing with an even scale and tone. Intonation is spot on. Forty-two yrs of playing and this is the best I've come across.

      Effortless, Sweet Tone w/Just the right amount of edge

      By 

      from Lake Charles, LA

      Site Member

      Comments about Vandoren Java Series Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      I've played on quite a few tenor mouthpieces over the last few years or so: hard rubber Otto Link (too stuffy), metal Link (great, but a little shrill at times), Jody Jazz ESP (slightly difficult in the low register), and a Sugal Kirk Whalum II (difficult to play). I had this mouthpiece in the closet and pulled it out a few months ago and it has become my favorite jazz gig mouthpiece. It is free blowing, even throughout all registers, effortless altissimo, and easy to play soft. Given, I wouldn't take it to a Rock & Roll or R&B gig because it is not bright or loud enough, but it really is great for jazz. It will provide plenty of sound for combo or big band gigs. For the price give it a shot. I like to use 3 1/2 ZZs with my T55 model. Hope that helps!
