Vandoren Java Ebonite - Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece
Java ebonite mouthpieces offer the feel that's ideal for jazz, soul and funk. Similar in concept to metal mouthpieces, Java saxophone mouthpieces offer the style and comfort of ebonite. Recommended for use with Java or V16 reeds.

T55 The same qualities as the T45, but a bit more open.
T45 Easy sound production; ideal for Big Band & section playing.
What has impressed with the range of Vandoren mouthpieces is the quality and clarity of the sound produced. With good reeds and a good ligature these mouthpieces feel very comfortable to play and really help the sax player to maximise his or her potential. There are a wide variety to choose from whatever style of music you are into. They are professional quality mouthpieces in every way at an affordable price.
This is a very flexible mouthpiece! Designed to suit the needs of the contemporary jazz musician who needs a piece that will work in both pop/funk and Jazz situations, and it delivers. Whilst not as full and warm as it's V16 brother, the Java provides a clean focused sound that is easy to push into a brighter, edgier sound whilst also delivering a pleasingly round and soft sound when you hold back. Due to a surprising amount of resistance, there is a lot of space to give it all you have, useful when struggling to be heard in an electric band. This mouthpiece will appeal to those looking for that 'Fusion' style sound or If you just play in several different style situations and don't want to carry a load of mouthpieces around with you.
