The Best of the Best!

Comments about Vandoren Optimum Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I've been looking a while for a good classical mouthpiece that I can get a great tone quality, projection, and can play well in the altissimo register. The Vandoren Optimum is definitely the mouthpiece that has all of those characteristics! I bought an AL3 Optimum because I've heard it was a great classical mouthpiece and it was recommended to me. After receiving it in the mail, I decided to play on it and it is the best classical mouthpiece I've played on! You should definitely consider on buying this mouthpiece!!

Vandoren Optimum-The next/first mouthpiece you should buy

By 

from Albuquerque, New Mexico

Comments about Vandoren Optimum Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

A wonderful piece of equipment with reliably accurate product descriptions as provided by WWBW. The AL3 is a great piece and relatively cheap on the market compared to the previously standard Selmer C* series. A fantastic warm sound with great control that is very well placed in an ensemble setting. If you want a little more power the AL5 with the wider tip opening will suit you very well. I combined this mouthpiece with a Vandoren M/O ligature and for a low price had a setup that created an IMMEDIATE change in my saxophone playing. You will not be disappointed!

Great mouthpiece!

Comments about Vandoren Optimum Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

The Vandoren Optimum AL3 mouthpiece is excellent. It helps produce a very warm, round, and rich tone. This is a great mouthpiece for classical music. I love the sound I get from the mouthpiece with Hemke 3.5 reeds or Vandoren V12 3 reeds. I haven't tried Vandoren Traditional reeds or Rico Reserve Classic reeds on this mouthpiece yet, but I think they would sound great as well. I recommend this mouthpiece regardless of what kind of music you play.

Vandoren Optimum AL-3

By

Comments about Vandoren Optimum Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I've played on many mouthpieces. Recently, I went searching for a professional grade mouthpiece. Since I take private lessons, I asked my tutor about a mouthpiece. He gave me a list to try. I ended up going through many of them through people we knew. I found that the AL3 works best. The AL4 is the next one, but the new features are not as beneficial as the AL3. Also, it is very versatile. The mouthpiece is meant for Classical, but like all good mouthpieces, it can't double for Jazz. I will mention that the best way to find a mouthpiece is to borrow/loan one. I recommend the AL3 or Selmer C* depending on which works best. However, for me, the AL3 has worked better.

Vandoren AL-3 alto mouthpiece.

By 

from Chester, VA

Comments about Vandoren Optimum Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I've been a sax player on and off for 35 years, but the last 6 years I have gotten serious with it. My main mouthpiece was the Selmer C* for classical. I saw the good reviews on this piece and ordered one to see for myself. This piece is noticeably easier to play than the C*. The sound may be a little quieter, but the tone is still nice. This would be the best piece for a student, in my opinion or a classical player.
