Latest Purchase
Derek M., 17.05.2013
I've recently purchased a Vandoren Optimun Alto Sax Mouthpiece. I was concerned that if I didn't like it, I would be stuck with it, but, Thomann's policy is that they will have it back if not entirely happy with the product, providing, of course that it has not been damaged or marked. Luckily, I was very happy with the mouthpiece and didn't have to return it. But it was comforting to know that I had a safety net if needed.

a very good mouthpiece
Pianosaxclarinet, 03.10.2013
This mouthpiece was recommended to me by my teacher at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (formerly RSAMD), and when I purchased it and starting playing it I immediately felt that this was an extremely good mouthpiece. It produces an excellent quality of sound, with dark, sonorous, resonant tones in the lower registers while allowing a more brilliant tone through the higher notes, and even allowing an entire octave of altissimo above keyed F#. The narrow tip opening allows for a loose embouchure and an excellent ease of blowing. Its response is not brilliant however, but is still of a very high quality and easy to overcome and get used to working with after a bit of practice. This is a great mouthpiece which I would recommend to those looking for a very flexible, easy to blow mouthpiece, but not for those looking for one with a longer tip opening.

Nice mouthpiece!
12.01.2016
I have only four mounts of saxophone playing. I bought this mouthpiece after researching pros and cons and can't be more happy. Is easy to blow, it was a beautiful sound and a fast response. It was a big improvement in my sound without needing any new saxophone. Highly recommended.
