Very Nice "Upgrade"

Comments about Vandoren V16 Series Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

Decided to upgrade from a Yamaha 4C to a Vandoren V16 A6 medium. I was looking for a more smoother and deeper sound. Found it in this. Very happy. This one's a keeper.

Best jazz alto mouthpiece I have had

Comments about Vandoren V16 Series Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

Had a modern Meyer 5 for several years and never really liked it. I put the V16 A5M on my Mark VII a few days ago when it arrived and WOW....I love the feel, the sound, everything! Can't wait to play it for the 1st time in a big band I am a regular in next week.

Best mouthpiece yet.

By 

from Miami, Florida

Comments about Vandoren V16 Series Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

This is by far the best mouthpiece on the market. The response and richness of the tone with the perfect amount of brightness for jazz is unmatchable. I narrowed it down to the 6M because this particular one had more of a jazz feel, and has a flawless tone for all volumes and ranges and was a little more responsive. I use it with a Yamaha 62III and vandoren Java reeds. I recommend this to anyone who wants the best mouthpiece for a reasonable price :)

Love this piece!

By

Comments about Vandoren V16 Series Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I got this piece a couple years ago at the recommendation of my professor and I couldn't be happier with it! I went with the 9 small which is large but it doesn't feel excessive, I can get a HUGE sound out of it if I need to but I tend to play relatively soft and the flexibility of it allows me to do so when playing small rooms, big band 2nd alto, etc. It has a surprisingly mellow P-MF dynamic range with the right setup (I have been using V16 #3's with a light sanding if necessary).

Great Mouthpiece

By 

from Atlanta

Site Member

Comments about Vandoren V16 Series Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I have been using a Morgan size 5 medium chamber alto mouthpiece for close to 20 years. I was satisfied with the sound of the Morgan, but wanted a little more edge without sacrificing body. The V16 A6 sm. chamber fit the bill. The tone is clear but not strident. I get an edge, but with a warm, focused center. Intonation is accurate and the mouthpiece has great control. Of course, as with any mouthpiece, matching it to the correct reed and ligature is key. I find Alexander Superial 3 or Vandoren JAVA 3 are good matches. This is couples with a Vandoren M/O ligature.
