Great lead alto mpc
ErikF, 19.09.2013
I'm using it in smaller combos as well as when playing lead alto in big band. Big, classic alto sound. Meyer type-ish. I bought the 8 mostly because the shorter lay. I think I would preferred a smaller opening but I don't like the longer lay. I combine it with ZZ reeds.

A well made mouthpiece
11.05.2016
I am very, very pleased with the quality of this mouthpiece. The hard rubber seems to be of an excellent quality. The tip, rails and table are spot on no flaws as far as I can see. The sound is very good and gives a lot of projection. I have compared it to my Meyer and think that this is as good if not of a superior quality.

The sound tends to be on the brighter side when compared to the Link I also use but considering that this is designed to be a brighter sounding mouthpiece that is to be expected. I would highly recommend this Vandoren mouthpiece.

gotta have it!!
13.02.2017
This is a must have mouthpiece for any altoist, wanting to play lead or blend-in section stuff.
The 7 facing is old school 80 thousands of an inch, for those of you who need to know.
In my opinion it has made the old V16 S & M models redundant (I have both, so can compare).- All of the best qualities from both of those rolled into one great piece.
I will also add, having spent a lot of money in the past on fully hand finished, exotic, vintage copies, this at a fraction of the price, actually delivers - and get this, I played a gig last Saturday, against 2 guitars, an electric keyboard and trumpet straight in my face and I could still hear myself cut through without any amplification, I was still able to articulate without over blowing, although having said that, it will stand up to a lot of air being pushed through it and also has a great facility to reach the desired altissimo and smooth transfer through all registers, no question..
Don't just take my word for it, why would you, you don't know me, get one on apro. and try it out first.
HAPPY BLOWING!!
