It plays with a controlled presence and power. It has a focused clarity and will add a fun boost to your volume, although your bandmates may wonder about your intentions--Ha!
Compared to current retail models($260-350) this one is a bargain. The T45 here is closest in tip size to the T6(0.098").
Current retail V16 descriptions(but have different chamber markers now): "The metal V16 tenor mouthpiece is made with the legendary "Bell Metal" brass, then plated with 24-karat gold."
We are pricing this lower because of the replacement ligature. Although, you can easily pursue a metal Optimum ligature and cap should that be your preference. Tooth pad also had grooves repaired, underneath a brand new Protec tooth pad cushion now installed.
