Vandoren V16 Optimum Help

1515 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  wwjdwithca
My Son's Teacher has asked him to get a Vandoren mouthpiece with a gold resonator ring. He couldn't remember the model name.
I found this V16:

But how come most of the V16 Optimums that I'm finding as a mouthpiece only (and not a kit) do not have the ring? What does the ring signify, anything?

The ring is just for looks. My V16 I own doesn't have a ring. I think only the newer models have rings, as mine is a few years old. So, don't worry about the ring or not.
