"Total Jazz Perfection"

I have been jamming on a Mark VII since 78' and I have never had a mouthpiece as awesome as the V16. I settled in on the 7S however I tried the 8M and 8S. The 8M is airy unless I'm blowing at full volume and then it just walks the talk. The 8S is a step down and more controlable. However, I like to play gently at times and the 7S gives me a gentle touch when needed and a powerful yet controlable sound when I want it. :)

"My A7S made alto fun again"

I had been primarily a tenor player for many years when I first encountered these while auditioning mouthpieces for my daughter. She chose a different mpc, but this one rose to the top for me. I hadn't planned to get my own new alto mouthpiece, but I wound up trying the A6S, A7S, A7M, A8S, and A9S. I went with mainly the "small" chamber pieces because they're not actually very small and don't give the thin and piercing tone that truly small chambers can yield. It was easy to narrow it down to A7S & A9S. The A9S was attractive for its openness and extra flexibility, but I finally chose the A7S because it gave me more of the classic lead alto sort of sound with a Rovner dark lig and Fibracell medium reed.** You can easily get plenty of edge and VOLUME if you want it, but the mellow side is also easy to find. ** NOTE: the current number-graded Fibracells (3, 3.5, and 4) sound really buzzy to me with this MP. I haven't yet settled on a new synthetic reed since they stopped making the word-graded Fibracells.

"wonderfull mouthpiece for marching and jazz band!"

I received this mouthpiece last Christmas of 2005. I love it! It's awesome and I would recommend it to anyone, playing alto sax, in the jazz or marching band. This mouthpiece enables you to play very loud while maintaining a wonderful tone. I had a Selmer S80 but this is by far 10,000 times better for what I want. Hope this (review) helps when making your mouthpiece selection.

This is the best mouthpiece I have ever seen. I got one a while back and I love it. Every one should get one. They are too loud for regular band. Only for solos or jazz or on the field.

"This piece speaks!"

Switching from a metal moutpiece to hard rubber was a hard decision (no pun intended), but it was the right one! I purchased a Vandoren V16 A6M and have loved every second with it! The range of my saxophone has opened tremendously and with a more fluid movement. The piece resonates quickly and provides a sleek and open tone for any player. I'm the prinicipal alto in my university's jazz ensemble and the mouthpiece allows me to cut through the entire band if I want, yet keep it under control when needs be. It's also great for small combo work. If I had to go back and choose again, I'd choose a larger facing, although the A6 speaks very clearly. Try it with size 3 to 3 1/2 Vandoren ZZ reeds and you'll have a winning combination that's sure to captivate and compel your audience!

How do i know what size chamber to choose? My 12 yr old daughter plays a Franklyn alto sax in a jazz band and usually uses size 1.5 reeds.

I would like to purchase two mouthpieces and determine which one I like better and return the other one. Would it be best to buy them both new or used to save money? If I return the new ones will I be refunded the same amount of money?

I'm playing alto sax with yamaha 5c for 5 months. Need to get rounder low tones and higher tones. Can hit all notes, but f# at top not round and Bb at bottom still like a fog horn. Marked improvement with switching to Java red 3. But still looking for better sound. Any suggestions?
