Vandoren Optimum Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece

The Vandoren Optimum series of saxophone mouthpieces is designed to be more free blowing and responsive. This alto sax mouthpiece gives you accurate articulation and total control at all dynamic ranges with precise intonation.

These mouthpieces are available in two different facings, the AL3 and the AL4. The AL3 most closely resembles a C* facing and is perfect for students from beginner to intermediate and into advanced. The AL4 is based on the popular A27 from the V5 series. The design is a bit more open and better for professionals or serious, upper-level students. It is similar to C**.

Vandoren mouthpieces are known for their high, uniform quality—among the best of the mass produced. The Vandoren line is extensive. It covers all woodwinds and offers designs suited to a variety of playing and musical styles.

Great mouthpiece.

By James from Palm Coast, Fl on 7/23/2010 12:26:23 PM

I have had this classical mouthpiece for several months an I love it. I actually upgraded to it from a Yamaha 4c because I felt like I was ready to upgrade to a stronger more clearer sound for and that is exactly what I got. I recommend the AL3 for beginners intermediate level players who want to upgrade their mouthpiece because the AL4 is definitely not for beginners. The AL4 would be for professional level players just as the description says. I myself am an advanced level player with the AL3 and like I have already said, I love it. It was definitely worth the money! :)
