I use a Vandoren V5 T20 for tenor and a Vandoren V5 A20 for alto.
Is the Vandoren V5 S25 the soprano version of these mouthpieces?
If no, what is the closest for soprano?
Thanks

I have an A25 & T25. They are the same tip opening as the A20 & T20, with a slightly different tip rail.
I also have a soprano S25. It's in the same family - round chamber, squeeze throat. If you like your Vandoren alto & tenor pieces you should be happy with the S25.

You might find the Optimum SL5 a better match for the A & T 20s than the S25. The SL5's bore is a slight redesign from the V5 range, but it is supposed to give a playing feel that favours the characteristics of the A20, i.e. rounder, compact sound with a softer reed. Worth a try, but it's a closer tip than the S25 and only you can say if you would prefer that.
