  1. Tips and Techniques
    I've been playing a V16 A9 mouthpiece for a few weeks and it's giving me the big bright sound I need as a lead alto, but I've been riding a little sharp on it, even when I'm pulled out as far as I can go without it falling off. What is the best way to resolve the tuning issue? Is there some way...
  2. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    So, I was lucky enough to pick up a recent V16 T9 metal piece "Large Chamber" for a silly price. - For those that don't know, the Large chamber is marketed as a 1940's style mouthpiece - I have always wanted to see how these things play, and although a 9 is outside my comfort zone it is a...
  3. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    I've been looking into getting a new mouthpiece for my alto as of late; more specifically, a Vandoren V16. I play on Vandoren Java Greens/ZZ 2.5 strength and want to stick with them since they've worked the best for me. Currently, I play on a Yamaha 4C, but the tone is way too bright for me, so...
  4. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    I've been looking into a better mpc for my alto as of late, and have been looking into a Vandoren V16. Currently, I play on a Yamaha 4C with 2.5 Java Greens/ZZ reeds, which has a very bright tone, and I'm trying to go for something on the warmer side. I'm hoping to stick with 2.5 Greens/ZZs, but...

  6. Reeds
    I'm looking to find some free blowing REEDS that I can use for concert band, jazz band, and contemporary church band. I am currently debating on the Vandoren ZZ's or the Vandoren V16's or the Javas (red or green). Which is more free blowing and which one will give me better intonation? Which one...
  7. Alto mpc
    I bought a Vandoren V16 (A5 medium chamber) almost ten years ago, and I noticed it doesn't have the metal ring around the shank like I see on the ones being sold today. Two questions: Does the ring do anything? Are there any other differences between the old ones and the current ones? Thanks.
  8. Tenor mpc
    I love the reasonable price of V16 !! I would like to buy one for my main or second mpc. I am looking for big openings. I am wondering if V16 can sing like Bob's tone in the video. As I know, Bob uses Slant #9. Please let me hear your experience using T8~t10. THANKS!
  9. Baritone mpc
    Hi everybody. What do you think about the Pillinger mpc for baritone sax? I play with a Berg Larsen and OL (both metal), but I am looking another sound for jazz (more vintage, dark), and I think on a Pillinger mpc, and also Vandoren V16. What dou you think? Thanks
