Vandoren Optimum Tenor Sax Mouthpiece
The Vandoren Optimum Tenor Sax Mouthpiece was designed to give students & classical saxophonists a mouthpiece with a warmer, rounder sound than what was traditionally available. Handcrafted in France by one of the most trusted and respected companies in the history of the saxophone, the Optimum tenor sax mouthpiece offers exceptional response, tone and versatility.
The Vandoren Optimum Tenor Sax Mouthpiece is Available in the following tips sizes:
- TL3 – .069″ Tip Opening
- TL4 – .077″ Tip Opening
- TL5 – .081″ Tip Opening
For most school musicians, the TL3 might be easier to play at first, but might be too small to really gain enough tonal presence as they progress. For that reason, for most players, we recommend the TL4 Optimum Tenor Sax Mouthpiece as it is an ideal size and design for symphonic tenor saxophonists as it offers a bit more flexibility with its slightly larger tip opening to gain additional projection while still maintaining good control.
Trial & Return Policy
Kessler & Sons Music offers a 3 day trial / return policy by default on in stock instruments and mouthpieces. There are no cleaning fees or restocking fees (assuming that the item is returned in proper condition).
When we ship the mouthpiece, we install a blue protective film over the logo to help protect the logo from irreparable scratches while it is being tested. We also install a tooth patch before shipping. This way you can test the mouthpiece without fear of damage. We recommend leaving these items on the mouthpiece during the testing phase and only to remove them after you have made the decision to keep the mouthpiece.
