Very Worthwhile Purchase!

By

I received the T75 as a Christmas gift just over a year ago, and am having trouble with motivating myself to find another mpc as a backup. I did some price and sound comparisons from the sax on the web forum, and found that I liked the tone, intonation, and apparent ease-of-use with this piece from the sound bites I was able to find. I was immediately impressed with the tone of this mouthpiece. It's warm enough throughout the entire horn (including altissimo) not to sound shrill, but bright enough to cut through the other sounds of guitar and other horns. When I play on my silver SML, the sound is huge! I've tried with a combination of reeds (Rico Royal 2.5, Rico Jazz Select 2.5 and 3, Vandoren ZZ 2.5 and 3), but at this point have settled with the Java 2.5 with a Rovner ligature.

Great Product

I recently decided that I wanted to make music a permanent part of my life, and being a tenor sax player (obviously), i asked some professionals in my area what they use. I heard many times from Jazz performers especially, that Vandoren makes great Metal mouthpieces. I immediately went to the store and tried it out, and was amazed. the T75 model I used projected my playing much more, improved my sound, strengthened by embouchure and made me a much better player. These mouthpieces will cut through the din of other musicians and let your tone be heard. Absolutely amazing. If you are considering a step up, trust Vandoren.

Bright, responsive, edgy

By

I bought this mouthpiece in 10th grade. This is definitely my favorite metal tenor mouthpiece. I used to play an Otto Link metal, and have tried out the SRs and some Guardalas. I don't have the money for the SRs, but I didn't notice any improvement on the V16 in the SRs or even the new Guardalas. My altissimo just pops out, and I have great sub tones. The mouthpiece really makes my mediocre horn sound really good. Great choice for any saxophonist!

An excellent Mouthpiece!

By

I always played the Ottolink 8* until I tried out the Vandoren V16 Tip 95 There is a slightly better tonal quality in the Vandoren that keeps you guessing as to where does it come from? Amazingly a very good piece of work!

A mouthpiece with youur tone in mind

By 

from Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Site Member

I have been playing the V16 Vandoren metal for a couple of years now. I have to say itÆs the easiest blowing mouthpiece I have every played. The opening of the mouthpiece is narrow, but has a clean and resonating sound. Even though itÆs an expensive mouthpiece, and you could buy two or close to three Otto links, for the price of one, the mouthpiece fits and plays the same on many horns, so you really just have to focus on the action of the horns. The V16 mouthpiece to me carries your sound to any horn you play.

Yup, kinda like a Link

By

It has a very centered, dry, clear and dark tone. I couldn't help but think of early Coltrane... It definitely seemed to like harder reeds best, perhaps due to a longer facing.

Can't Complain

By 

from Jacksonville, FL

I've had three of these mouthpieces - one was stolen with a Keilwerth, one was borrowed from a friend while waiting on a replacement, and now I play the replacement on a new Keilwerth. The best part is they all played just as well as each other; Easy intonation, good on reeds, and a great, big, not-too-bright-but-still-contemporary sound. I recommend it to anyone looking for more from their hard rubber mouthpiece without going chamber-wild on a big bright metal piece. Hands down the best tenor mouthpiece I've played. I play the T75 model with V16 reeds and an Optimum ligature.

Great sound and easy to play

By

I use this mouthpiece for jazz and rock. Lots of compliments on my sound, and very easy to play: good response on low and high notes, good dynamic control, plays well in tune. This is the mouthpiece I recommend to anyone looking for a good versatile jazz mouthpiece.
