I love this

Comments about Vandoren V16 Series S+ Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

This mouthpiece is absolutely fantastic. It's bright but still focused; that many jazz mouthpieces lack that balance I look for. I couldn't ask for a better mouthpiece

    Comments about Vandoren V16 Series S+ Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    Great sounds all the way up and down easy altissimo and lows. zero negatives. I like a good small chamber mouth piece as reeds are very active. This mouth piece is on a Allora Paris Series Professional Alto sax i use a Legere 2 strength synthetic Tenor sax reed on my Alto sax with Alto sax Mouth piece. Tenor reeds work well on Alto sax and Alto sax reeds work well on Soprano saxes as they are slightly wider and extend past the mouth pieces thin side walls this helps a lot with sound quality

      Comments about Vandoren V16 Series S+ Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      I've tried all sorts of jazz alto mouthpiece brands and models including the most popular vintage stuff. There are so many great choices! But when I tried the S+, I was blown away and have since made the switch permanently. What I love about the S+ is that despite the small chamber you can still get a FAT alto sound with great focus and body. Whether I'm playing lead in a big band or in a small group it's a great fit. It projects really well without being overly bright, and still has great body and core for blending in a section. I've added this to my list of recommendations for students too. They're easy to control and the smaller tip openings are a great fit for younger players and pros alike depending on what you're used to. Personally i think they pair really well with ZZ or V16 reeds. if you're looking for something brighter, throw on a JAVA Green or JAVA Red. If you haven't tried out this mouthpiece you're missing out!
