The Vandoren V16 was recently re-invented and is made with the legendary “Bell Metal” brass, then plated with 24-karat gold. These are the hidden gem amongst Tenor mouthpieces, often overshadowed by the 'latest and greatest' (or those shouting loudest) modern niche makers - but make no mistake these V16 models are absolutely packed full of depth, character and tone.

The Medium Chamber is a good all round option: 

• M: Medium chamber: Inspired by the famous mouthpieces from the 50's/60's. A round and deep sound but still with plenty of bite, focus and projection.



NO LIGATURE SUPPLIED - ORDER ALC417 for correct Vandoren Ligature & Cap

I bought one of these about five months ago and I think it's great. When I bought it I thought it a bit better for me than the various alternatives – Dawkes were very helpful in the shop suggesting several mouthpieces to try and plying me with coffee – but since then the metal V16 has really grown on me. To be precise I bought a Vandoren V16 Metal Tenor mouthpiece, medium chamber T7. It has a rich tone, full of character. It's reliable to play and it's quite an all-rounder. I use it for a jazz quartet/trio - where it is superb – you can get quite a classic sound, but I also play big band jazz and in a pub pop-rock band. If you only play rock, you might want something different but it works there too: it doesn't go thin at the top, like some pieces do, and has plenty of oomph and a nice edge if pushed. The tone is very uniform from top to bottom so I find I’m exploring the whole instrument in solos and not just sticking to a favourite part of the range. It comes without a ligature but an inexpensive Rovner Star ligature (about £20) is fine if you don’t want the bespoke Vandoren one. I play it with a Vandoren Red Java 2.5 reeds and, to be honest, after the first few weeks I’ve not been tempted to try anything else. Not a trendy brand, nor immediately exciting sound like some makes – but when you get to know it you find its hidden depths and unlike many pieces, it’s not a one trick pony.
