|: Vandoren Optimum TL3 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece || BuyNow |
The new Optimum Saxophone Mouthpieces represent a break from the current French-style mouthpieces! The design is reminiscent of vintage mouthpieces in their shape. The side walls are parallel but the throat is round and leads to a round (not excavated, but round) chamber. The result is refined French sound but with more depth and warmth than the Selmer mouthpieces. Articulation, ease of response and intonation are superb.
The TL3 (SM721) has a tip opening of 176/100 and is smaller than a Selmer C* ; works well with a Vandoren #2.5, #3 or #3.5 reed.
