      Comments about Vandoren V5 Classic Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      I feel like Vandoren's V5 range is a little undiscovered, perhaps eclipsed by the popularity of the Optimums. Both ranges are great, but have different timbral characters. The V5s are particularly colorful and vibrant, with a range of facings/tip openings to suite everyone from young players through to professionals. For me, there are two standout mouthpieces in the range: The A20 facilitates a beautiful sound, which is great for standard classical repertoire. The A28's short facing and closed tip facilitate great articulation and altissimo, particularly suitable for contemporary repertoire.

      Amazing Classical Mouthpiece

      By

      Comments about Vandoren V5 Classic Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      I play an A17 and I love it. Its reed friendly, playable in every register, easy to control, great intonation (you wouldn't think a mouthpiece would influence that, but it definitely does,) and it's playable in all dynamics. I have no idea how people continue to play the C* mouthpiece or any other mouthpiece by Selmer with all of the fantastic mouthpieces made by Vandoren. I have yet to try a Vandoren I don't like or that doesn't respond. And, since Vandoren makes the classical reeds I use, the mouthpieces are cut for a perfect fit with the reeds. You couldn't ask for a bigger blessing. Every reed plays wonderfully. I usually play a 3 1/2 reed, but this piece can even handle a 4 with no difficulty. It plays a bit differently than SelmerÆs and at first is a little more difficult to control in the altissimo register, however after a few minutes of initial tinkering, you will increase your range by a minor third and the clarity is incredible.

      Nice Mouthpiece

      Comments about Vandoren V5 Classic Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      The mouthpiece overall is great. It produces a dark, rich, sound and is easy to play. On this mouthpiece I can hit every note with ease, even Altissimo, and at every dynamic. The sound is full and stable and just sounds great... What a great find... O it looks pretty good too.
