Vandoren V16 Ebonite mouthpieces are inspired by the sound of the greatest jazz musicians from the fifties to the present. JAVA , V16 and ZZ reeds are recommended for these mouthpieces.
The alto mouthpiece is available in five tip openings and two chambers:
- The new S+ chamber is the next step in the evolution of the V16 alto mouthpiece. It offers a richer depth of sound while keeping the free-blowing nature and projection that characterise the V16 alto models. The S+ chamber accommodates more air, providing the musician greater flexibility and a wider array of colours with which to work.
- M “Medium” chamber: Warm and expressive, ideal for section playing.
The A6 is the most played mouthpiece, in every style. It has a 196 (1/100 mm) tip opening and a medium-long facing length.
