|Vandoren's Optimum Mouthpiece for alto saxophones was launched at winter NAMM 2003 and is designed for classical music and concert band situations. Available in the new facings AL3 and AL4, a new rail and facing design and an overall body design update not only makes the mouthpiece stand out visually, it's responsible for the Optimum's sound as well. Vandoren's Optimum impresses with free-blowing, tone and intonation.
"Classical sax players have been waiting for a mouthpiece with the Optimum's type of immediate response and tone to come along; in fact it was the input of classical saxophonists that inspired Vandoren's radical design efforts," comments Vandoren's Director of Marketing Michael Skinner. "We're confident that this mouthpiece will become the new star of the industry."
