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.
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 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.
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.
This is a wonderful mouthpiece with a beautiful tone. Allows tons of control and very free blowing. Great all around product!
I recently recorded myself playing my Yannie 991/Vandoren V-16 #7/JaZZ reed # 3. I used a quality digital recorder and placed the mike close enough to capture every nuance. I was blown away with the wide ranged consistency of tonality, accurate pitch, and the endless expressive capabilities. I love the sound. I love the horn. I love the mouthpiece. I love the reed. I can't imagine playing any other set up for combo jazz and big band. I also use it in a classical sax quartet, and the V-16 allows me to blend in very well. I have tried others, but I honestly can't see paying more for a mouthpiece that is not really any better. Oh, I use the Rovner lig, if that makes any difference. Did I mention the very wide dynamic range of this set up? I also have an "8" when I don't have a long gig to play, because it has a slightly "heavier" quality, but with the same projection and expression. I feel as though these pieces were custom built just for me. Don't spend too much money on a mouthpiece unless it makes you a better player.
I find this to be an excellent mouthpiece at any price. Not what I would use for jazz, but in the "pit " or to blend with a sax section, this mouthpiece is more than adequate.
One extra plus; more of my reeds play with
mouthpiece than any other I currently use.
A great value.
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.
I am looking for a strong mpc. That will cut trumpets and electrically assisted instruments. I'm not sure why I tried this mpc. BUT I'm sure glad that I did. It's a GREAT ensemble / smooth Jazz mpc. Very easy to control. I used both Vandoren Java (2 1/2) and Fibracell (3). GREAT Tone. Very classic saxophone. Another added value; Vandorens do not need to be refaced. I tried a T8 model. Not a marching band or Rock / Fusion mpc. But too good to pass up in the right application.
