Vandoren Java Alto Sax Mouthpieces
Vandoren's Java Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece is an exceptional choice for the jazz, rock, or blues saxophonist. Its design is meant to mirror the tone qualities of metal mouthpieces by using a high baffle that gives it a very edgy sound that can cut through and be heard with live rhythm sections and amplifiers. The Vandoren Java mouthpiece offers all of these advantages while still being made of ebonite; which is widely recognized as being an easier mouthpiece to play for extended period of time. Cap and Ligature NOT Included.
One of the more well-known options for a ebonite jazz mouthpiece today is the Vandoren Java Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece. Its construction takes design elements from metal mouthpieces to give it a bright and edgy sound that makes it great for use in jazz, rock, or blues settings. Vandoren Java, V16 or ZZ jazz reeds are recommended for use with this mouthpiece. As always Vandoren's attention to detail with design and construction means that you will get a very high quality mouthpiece with no flaws in its construction. Cap and Ligature NOT Included.
