Why I love my mouthpiece...

Vandoren V16... the mouthpiece that liberates you be you.

"Realizing that many players just like to "talk shop" and love trying out the "next new thing," I'm glad I've found the mouthpiece that brings my sound up to ground zero... nothing in the way. Now I can concentrate on what really counts... developing a lovely, powerful, sensitive sound."

Kirk,
Did you ever get the Ligature you were looking for? Rippe said that you were looking for the new Vandoren a few months ago. Another question, are you still playing on the Keilwerth or did you end up selling it on Ebay? Please respond via email.
Thanks......here is a link to my band. we are playing at Shelby Farms on the 29th, if you are in town.
