Hey, I'm new to this forum and I'm sure this question has been asked a few times, however, I couldn't find a definitive anwser.

I was classically trained on the alto for over 8 years and began learning jazz 3 years ago. I want to get a jazz mouthpiece so I did my research and feel like a Vandoren V16 S+ is the best fit for me. However, I'm not sure which tip opening would be best. I know that coming from a classical background, a smaller tip opening would be best. I'm also aware that a larger tip opening gives a bigger sound. So, I felt like maybe a 6s+ or 7s+ would be optimal. Could I maybe get your opinions on which tip opening would be best and your own experience with the V16?

Thanks in advance!!

P.S. I don't have a music store nearby so it's not possible to test the mpc's before hand.
