More info






The T8 has a tip opening (1/100mm) of 270mm and a long facing length.



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.



Vandoren recommends using the following reeds:

- Vandoren Traditional 2.5 - 3

- Vandoren V12 33.5

- Vandoren Java Red 2 - 2.5 - 3

- Vandoren Java Green 3 - 3.5

- Vandoren ZZ 3 - 3.5


Characteristics:

- Model: T8 V16

- Tip Opening (1 / 100mm): 280 Medium
