Product Information

The Vandoren V16 Alto Sax mouthpieces represent Vandorens most versatile jazz mouthpiece options and are by far the most popular in their Alto Jazz mouthpiece range. Extremely consistent and well made the V16 mouthpieces are available in the usual tip openings with the addition of a chamber size choice:

Chamber Options

The V16 Vandoren Alto Sax mouthpieces are available in various tip openings (5-9) and with a choice of internal chamber size: M for Medium or S+ for Small Plus.

The new S+ chamber is the next step in the evolution of the V16 alto sax mouthpiece range. It offers a richer depth of sound than the previous S (small chamber model) while keeping the free-blowing nature and projection that characterise the V16 alto models.

The S+ chamber accommodates more air than the previous small chamber design providing the musician greater flexibility and a wider array of colours with which to work. Essentially it focuses the sound compared to the Medium due to the smaller chamber and this gives it a bright punchy sound.

The M Medium chamber offers a warmer, rounder sound due to the larger chamber size. It is a personal choice as to what tone colours and character the player seeks.

Tip Opening Info (1/100mm):
  • A5 (188)
  • A6 (196)
  • A7 (204)
  • A8 (210) - Special Order Only

Vandoren V16 Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece Reviews

Anonymous review via Feefo  -  2020-03-29

Difficult choice sending this one back but the D'Addario select jazz just had a slightly edgier sound.

Anonymous review via Feefo  -  2020-01-05

High quality finish, unlike most mass produced mouthpieces.

Excellent free-blowing mouthpiece which gives an extra zing to the higher harmonics for jazz, but also nice sound for classical. Needs to be pulled out more on crook than standard bore to maintain tuning.

Great MP, I upgraded from standard set-up that came with saxophone (YAS). Stil getting used to it but already makes a difference to tone/sound. Recommended to try this out.
