Vandoren Optimum AL4 Classic Mouthpiece for Alto Saxophone

New product

Vandoren mouthpieces have defined the ideal saxophone sound for decades. The Optimum mouthpiece is the favourite of classical saxophonists. The conception of this series was the fruit of research on both external shape (particularly the beak) and sound, in order to meet the needs of today’s saxophone players. The Optimum mouthpiece is more free-blowing and responsive with accurate articulation, precise intonation and total control at all dynamic ranges. A little more open than the AL3, the AL4 maintain the sound aesthetic of the OPTIMUM series.

Each mouthpiece is polished to a brilliant finish. The final adjustment of the facing is done by staged diamond cutting tools. The tolerances of 4/10,000 of an inch are so small that, to maintain precision, the table is not polished. Each mouthpiece is hand finished at the baffle, walls, and tip rail. Master craftsmen finish and adjust each mouthpiece to surpass the most critical examinations of professional musicians. The mouthpieces are polished one last time (except the facing area) to eliminate marks and imperfections. The Vandoren name is then stamped in gold on the mouthpiece along with the model number.
