Vandoren V16 Metal Tenor Mouthpiece


The tenor mouthpiece is made with the legendary “Bell Metal” brass, then plated with 24-karat gold.

Available in 3 chambers:

• (Large chamber): In the tradition of the 40's. The great vintage sound.

• (Medium chamber): Inspired by the famous mouthpieces from the 50's/60's. A round and deep sound.

(Small chamber): The original V16 model relabeled with the Small indication. A centered sound with a lot of projection.
