"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.

I bought the A9s version and I am in love. this piece is perfectly bright in the upper register without screaming at you. the middle register has a lot of flavor and the lower register just sweetly speaks to you. Altissimo seems to pop right out once you have adapted. I went from a Selmer Soloist C8 to a Dukoff D8 to a Jody Jazz Classic 5 (terrible) to this beauty. There is no more perfect matchup than this piece, vandoren zz 3.5, Vandoren Optimum or Rovner Versa X (play exactly the same) and my 1971 Selmer Mark VI. This is an amazing price fora career of happiness.

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. :)

"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!

I have been playing the sax for 8 years and it is a great experience. Over the years i was wondering how can i upgrade my sound and that even though i don't have a great alto what can i do to produce a more jazz sound. Well i looked no further after trying mouthpieces this one came to me the best the clearness and darkness of it is incredible and it makes my horn sound that much better and with a hint of a bright sound i can sound good in a lot of places and i highly reccommend it for more traditional jazz playing or even contemporary playing so this is a great buy

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?
