The Yamaha standard series mouthpieces are made of high quality phenol resin and feature a professional-grade Custom design. They are extremely consistent in specifications and play quality, offering a good price / quality ratio. The lining of this series is slightly shorter than the Custom series, making them easier to play.
This mouthpiece Vandoren Optimum AL3 for Alto saxophone is generally the choice of classical saxophonists. The design of this Optimum series resulted from the research of both the external format (the nozzle in particular) and the sonority, in order to meet the needs of today's saxophonists.
The Vandoren reeds of the Traditional series were designed to produce an extremely pure sound due to the very thin blade tip (area of the reed that shows the maximum vibration), balanced with a solid spine (more cane in the area that gradually rises) . This is the 3 1/2 reed for Alto Saxophone.
The traditional Vandoren reeds are known for their excellent response on all registers, allowing a pianissimo attack, even on the highest notes. Extremely flexible, allowing the execution of legato or staccato at great intervals, maintaining a richness that gives body and clarity to the sound. This SR2115 reed is for alto saxophone.
