"Vandoren has finally found the vintage sound"

The Vandoren V16 Tenor mouthpiece is a great rubber mouthpiece for the price. The mouthpiece has a large chamber opening that lets you play with a large and robust sound. The feel of the mouthpiece in the mouth feels snug and comfortable similar to an old Meyer or Otto link. It comes with no ligature, but a great ligature to try with the mouthpiece is a large Rovner, a Frantois Louis brass or gold chamber ligature, and the Vandoren Optium 16 that has three chambers so you can see which piece will give you the sound you are looking for. The only flaw about the mouthpiece is some players will think it?s too big, but to understand from a big stand point, it?s not as big as an old white Brilhart mouthpiece.

I am normally a metal otto link player, but lately, I have just not been getting the sound I wanted from my piece. I decided to order a Vandoren v16 mouthpiece to try since I had heard so many positive reviews of it. I normally try to avoid hard rubber pieces such as because they tend to be way too dark for my taste (I generally try to have more of a middle of the road sound). I have tried HR mouthpieces such as Jody Jazz, Morgan, Meyer, and even a few vintage HR otto links that I really didn't care for. That was not the case with the T9 that I ordered. I was shocked at how well this piece projected. The tone was rich and full sounding, yet was very versatile. I could go from a very dark Dexter Gordon-like sound to a bright Brecker-like sound. The tuning was great in all octaves and I was able to maintain a full sound from top to bottom. I also noticed that this mouthpiece is very free-blowing considering that is has a medium-large chamber. I felt that the Vandoren Java "green box" reeds were the best fit for the mouthpiece (Though everybody has different preferences). This is definitely one of the best mouthpieces I have ever played and I would highly recommend this piece to professionals and students alike because of the consistency of Vandoren products as well as the fact that this mouthpiece is a bargain at $124.99. If I were to recommend a ligature for this mouthpiece, it would be the Vandoren Optimum Ligature as I felt the mouthpiece had the best response with this ligature. Definitely give the v16 a try!

This mouthpiece doesn?t have quite the dark, rich sound as it's metal version but still produces a great sound. I use a synthetic studio cut Legere reed on this mouthpiece and now my altissimo and low notes are flawless.

"Excellent mouthpiece"

I used to play a rubber link that I chose among around fifty mouthpieces including Bergs, Ponzols, and several other links. For me the true sound of tenor is the rubber link, but all those mouthpieces have the same problem, even if they have a great sound, they are quite hard to control specially for openings like 7 and above. They're quick made and very irregular. The rubber Vandoren V16 has completely solved that control problem, allowing to produce more precise articulation and better nuances, and offering a great Link like sound. Every mouthpiece is perfect and really read friendly. I suggest using it with the Vandoren Optimum mouthpiece.

I have been playing tenor for 46 yrs. I have a wide collection of horns and mpc. Fourteen various vintage and manufacture of sax and a ton of mpc to include custom. Just got the V16 T11, different animal than the V16 T10. Easy blowing and very well made Spot on intonation on my old Buescher Big B tenor. Speaks easily in all registers and dynamic levels. Big bonus is the cost of owning one of these great mpc. Vandoren is surely one of the best on the market.

"Works for me"

I played flute, I have returned to tenor sax. I am playing a Keilwerth SX90R and after experimenting with several mouthpiece/reed combinations, I have settled on the Vandoren V16 (T7) mouthpiece with V16 2 1/2 reeds and find that this combination gives me a very big but easily controllable sound from the bottom through altissimo. The real surprise however is the great tone that this mouthpiece produces at low volume levels as well. It may not work for everyone but it works for me.

Well I used to use one of the Selmer metals and I thought that was just too plain edgy for me. I bought the V16. The first thing that came to my mind was "This is a huge mouthpiece!" I tried it and I was just amazed on the projection I had with a mellow feeling in my sound with the Vandoren JAVA reeds, but once you put some ZZ on that monster, it will roar. I'm planning to get the optimum ligature for the mouthpiece and hope for the best with it. If you are looking for a mouthpiece with some huevos and smoothness, the V16 is a must for you, unless you are a metal type of person I guess...

I love it. It is good with 2.5 Rico royal reeds. Love (that) I can hit all my notes on my tenor sax. I suggest it to everyone if you don?t mind paying 125.00 for a mouth piece. Love it.

This mouthpiece is probably the best thing that ever happened to me.(as far as music goes) I play on a tenor sax model and it roars when the V16 is on it along V16 #3 reeds. I got the T7 which I was surprised to see, was the lowest facing available. But the rich, solid tone this mouthpiece provides is an amazing jazz tone. By talking into the instrument while playing, I can now make a mean, nasty, powerful tone like that raspy sound of Clarence Clemmons. I can listen to the classical jazz stuff and create a prefect match in sound compared to John Coltrane and several other legends. (They?re not lying when they say, "This mouthpiece is designed to imitate the sound response of jazz mouthpieces from the 50's.") All I can say is that if you want an amazing mouthpiece that will allow you to create the prefect TRUE JAZZ sound, choose Vandoren V16.You won't regret it.
