A new creation from Vandoren. Ebonite mouthpiece for jazz in the tradition of the famous American tenor saxophone mouthpieces of the fifties.

Staff Reviews

A full warm and round sound with plenty of character. Clearly in the Otto Link vein but with a slightly smaller chamber which just allows for that extra bit of kick when you really give it some.

I tried out the T7 model and found the piece to have quite a bit of resistance due to the short facing curve, which gave me the flexibility to get that extra bit of volume when I needed it, without the high notes becoming too hard to control.

Still fairly easy to play all over the saxophone, despite the resistance, and a great piece for those seeking a flexible Jazz piece that could do the quartet gigs and the Big Band solos.

This is a 'piece that is well suited to lead tenor playing in a big band. It has an open chamber and has a West Coast 'cool jazz' feel. Very responsive, easy to control & full sounding in all registers. I liked Java 2 and V16 reeds with this 'piece.

"Vandoren V16 T7 "
Zsolt O.
I have a Otto Link 7 # Vintage (the new vintage) rubber tenor piece and cannot stop playing it but the V16 is a lot more powerful. I use the V16 for ballads and it is so much better control of the mouthpiece then my Otto Link. It is only slightly brighter but so powerful. Playing it more often now so may only stay with the V16 T7 mouthpiece. I recommend to students and highly recommend to people like myself that love the Stan Getz (soft style) type of sound and playing. It is a great pro mouthpiece. Great mouthpiece. Thank you Vandoren!!!
