Comments about Vandoren Optimum Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:
I am a classical saxophonist studying various repertorie in college. Having played the Selmer S80 C*, Selmer S90 180, and Selmer Larry Teal, I find that the Vandoren Optimum takes the responsiveness of the Selmer Paris mouthpieces and combines it with a darker and more homogenous tone. I settled on the AL3 and haven't thought of switching since. Altissimo speaks well and in tune. Overall I am very pleased, and the Optimum line have become the standard in our studio. I recommend paring this with a Vandoren M/O or Optimum ligature and about a 3 strength reed.
