Hi
Before years I bought a Vandoren V16 T95 metal alto mouthpiece. I want to sell it now and was searching for this type on internet to see what the value is about. Nothing! Only for tenor, nothing for alto. Does anyone know why this is? So unpopular or so unique?馃槣

I don鈥檛 think Vandoren ever made metal alto pieces. Can you post some pictures?

T95 indicates a Tenor mouthpiece. Vandoren's tip naming system doesn't have a lot of sense but one thing that it does consistently is use SATB letters to show which mouthpiece goes with which horn. A T95 is a tenor mouthpiece, an A45 is an alto, an S6 is soprano, etc.

That's a tenor mouthpiece. It may fit on an alto depending on the cork but it's a tenor piece.

The V16 T95 is an older tenor model. I played it for some time. Straight walls and a rather small chamber. The equivalent in Vandoren鈥檚 current line would be the metal V16 T9S (small).
They appear in classified ads for somewhere between 150-200 鈧 here in 鈥淟atin Europe鈥. Dunno if they eventually sell at those prices.

Example, a nice "full" package including pouch and the excellent Optimum ligature:
