    Default Vandoren V16 Rubber Tenor

    I've been told these will hit the street in March. Available in Link Sizing (7-10). Anyone play one at the I.A.J.E. ? Demos are floating around.

    I did a survey for Vandoren testing some different proto-types on the V16 rubber tenor. I recently played the pieces that will be out soon. Predict it will be a big hit for people that play rubber on tenor. Similar to a slant link.

    I'm playing a hard rubber V16 T9. They go as big as 10. Great projection without a baffle. Dark sound, good rubber. Reminds me of a slant link. These come in just one chamber size. I've only been playing it for a couple of days now and I'm still trying to figure what kind of reeds and lig to play on it. They should be out in March in limited amounts. Feel free to email me with any specifics.

    Thanks Julius.

    Is it a large round chamber? And rounded sidewalls?

    Great music on your website btw. You play great!

    Wow...I find it unfortunate that it isn't available in a size one notch down. 105 is too big for me. I don't have much motivation to dump my Lebayle anyway, but I love my V16 alto piece so I thought I'd try the tenor when it comes out.

    <Is it a large round chamber? And rounded sidewalls?>

    The tenor V16 rubber comes in sizes 7- 10. It does have a round chamber, I'm not sure if it's large, I guess I would say medium. The sidewalls are rounded. Thanks for checking out my music- JJ

    Hey Julius,

    Did you play with the Kendrick Oliver Band in Boston at Scullers?

    I have a rubber V16 T7 and T8 right now that I'm messing around with. My first impressions are that these V16s are very easy to play! They are loud and have a brightness I did not expect. The T8 played so easily that I had to check to see if it was the T7 (smaller tip). The mouthpiece looks link-like with scooped sidewalls, etc... the V16 has a higher roll-over baffle. Soundwise I find them pretty different. The V16 is much more focused, brighter, louder, and more efficient than the rubber link 7* I played. These V16s are also more modern sounding and very versatile. I'd have no problem playing one of these in a loud amplified situation. The T8 especially. I definately sense the same (V16 alto) vibe in these tenor pieces

    I won't be surprised to see a lot of players switching to this mouthpiece.

    I've seen my first few V16 tenors, and happy to share some thoughts. The three T10s that I saw measured very consistently in terms of facing curve and tip opening, a trademark and testimonial to Vandoren's consistency of production. They have a somewhat medium-large chamber, in between a Meyer M and vintage Link. They were certainly not trying to copy a Link, but have a higher floor like older Links, as opposed to the scooped out floor of Links today. It has a substantial rollover baffle, projects well and certainly on the brighter end of the spectrum than a Link, due in good part also to the hardness of Vandoren's rubber compound. It played pretty well out of the box. I believe Vandorens are the best mass-produced pieces out there today: good rubber, consistent facings and finish work. And these can be made into good Link copies (which we have already done!) with some chamber work. These V16s will be popular, I'm sure.

    What are these pieces selling for?

    This is very exciting as Vandoren knows how to make mouthpieces "right".

    Is the beak taller than the Java/Jumbo Java models?

    Very glad to hear the chamber is more medium-large than large-large.

    Looks like I'm not done buying mouthpieces for myself!
