Roger The Cat, 29.08.2017
I received my Vandoren V16 Tenor Sax T5-L mouthpiece in good time and at an excellent price, initially I found the upgrade from my Yamaha C6 to this mouthpiece challenging, but only after a short while I began to enjoy the wonderful sound that this mouthpiece let me produce both warm and bright, and notably louder than the Yamaha. I originally used a number 2.0 Vandoren V16 Reed, but have now settled on an Alexander Superial 2.5 reed. The mouthpiece is of excellent quality and has more weight to it than I expected, the Vandoren Optimum Ligature V16 which I also bought was of the same quality, although the three reed pressure plates to me don?t make that much of a difference to my sound.

Overall I would recommend this mouthpiece,

Wer Link mag und noch mehr Vintage sucht, wird das T5-L lieben!

Man könnte sagen eine echte Weiterentwicklung des Link in Sachen Ansprache, Qualität und Sound.

Ich spiele es auf einem Ref. 54 und habe mit keinem anderen Mundstück so ein phantastisch obertonreiches Brizzeln obwohl der Grundton tief und unglaublich voluminös ist.

1+ / Absolute Kaufempfehlung!

... übrigens. Hier muss man nur eines bestellen ;-) !

hält den Vergleich zu Otto Link nicht stand
SaxMax_, 02.02.2021
Weil mein Otto Link Soundmaster Bahn 5* von Jemandem bei einem Auftritt samt Sax umgeworfen wurde (Saxophon nahm auch Schaden, inzwischen aber Saxophonwechsel) hat mein Otto Link an der Spitze eine winzige Delle/Verformung, die sich ganz bestimmt auf den Luftstrom auswirkt. Nachdem ich trotzdem jahrelang damit weiter gespielt habe, die Delle aber doch ein steter Grund des Ärgernis für mich ist, habe ich das, lt. den Bewertungen hier `angeblich` besser verarbeitete Vandoren V16/T5 ausprobiert. Es passte schon mal nicht- bzw. nur mit wirklich Gewalt und viel Korkfett auf den S-Bogen meines Yamaha YTS62S. Meine liebe LILLY klang mit dem Mundstück und Vandoren Jazz 2,5 derartig blechern, dass ich das Mundstück erschrocken wieder abgemacht- und nachgeschaut habe, ob ich alles richtig gemacht habe. Doch ja, ich habe mir etwas später noch einen 2ten Test gegönnt und meinen S-Bogen maletriert mit dem gleichen Ergebnis. Über Ansprache kann ich nicht klagen bei dem V16, es sprach schon an in allen Bereich. Das habe ich aber nicht umfassend getestet. Irgendwie schockiert habe ich das V16 zurück geschickt und mir ein neues Otto Link Bahn 5 (ohne *) bestellt. Wenn die kleine Delle an meinem derzeitigen Mundstück nicht wäre, würde ich kein anders Mundstück bestellen. Ich bin ganz glücklich mit meinem Soundmaster.

Super bec !
Raph., 08.05.2019
Voilà 1 semaine que je l'utilise et j'en suis très satisfait. Le son est très chaud, et me permet de me rapprocher d'un son à la Stan Getz. Les subtones sont faciles et il me surprend aussi car il peut aussi avoir un rendu brillant et incisif quand on "envoie".
N'ayant qu'un an de pratique sa faible ouverture me convient parfaitement je le trouve très facile d'émission
Je l'utilise avec des java ZZ 2,5 et une ligature BG Révélation Jazz (modèle vendu pour Dukoff et Larsen), le tout se marie à merveille pour moi
