It is a great mouthpiece!
SaxoCaraiani , 22.06.2017
I really like it!
I can feel the vintage sound of it and the way it plays is fantastic. It is free blowing and it has a nice projection for the vintage classic sound of jazz in the style of Lester Young, Dexter Gordon or Coleman Hawkins. You can really feel the 40' in your sound.
A great mouthpiece that reminds me of that jazz from back in the day!
A very good mouthpiece for jazz standards and jazz tunes from 1940 - 1960 era.

Just not for me
MiKLKble, 07.04.2020
Good response when played (even if a little less true for me in the low register). This finish of the mouthpiece is great. My 3 on 5 stars are based on 3 points : 1- even if it is indicated, Vandoren could furnish a ligature. 2- It was a little tight to plug on my Tenor's neck. 3- More personally, I was looking for a different sound and sensations

Sehr gelungen
06.01.2016
Das V16 Metall ist für mich ein grandioses Mundstück. Es vereint alles, was ich in einem Mundstück suche. Ich spiele hauptsächlich Jazz und etwas Rock/Pop.
Aufgrund der großen Kammer ist der Sound sehr voll und rund ? und er ist genauso wandlungsfähig. Von Subtone bis direkt. Die Beschreibung des Herstellers ?ganz in der Tradition der 40er Jahre? greift somit meines Erachtens zu kurz. Mit diesem Mundstück ist eine breitere Palette an Sounds (u.a. auch moderner) möglich.
Ganz besonders fasziniert hat mich die Leichtigkeit, mit der das V16 anspricht, sowohl in der Tiefe als auch im Altissimo.
Die Verarbeitung ist Vandoren-typisch top: Table, Rails, Rollover-Baffle ? alles schön symmetrisch und sauber gearbeitet.
Das Beste am V16 Metall ist für mich jedoch die Tatsache, dass ich noch nie so ?sorgenfrei? mit einem (Metall-)Mundstück gespielt habe wie mit diesem.
Ich kann das V16 Metall T6-Large wärmstens empfehlen.

Loistava soundi
Bluesmies, 12.02.2021
Soundi, soittotuntuma ja työn laatu ovat täydellisiä. Ligatuuri pitää hankkia erikseen: Vandoren Optimum Ligature V16 Tenor PC.
