EFFORTLESS CLARITY, PROJECTION, AND FLEXIBILITY
Vandoren’s latest addition to the classical saxophone line, the Profile mouthpiece, offers effortless clarity, projection and flexibility. We take a closer look at some technical aspects, reed suggestions, and feedback from leading classical saxophoninsts.
A Classical Approach
The Vandoren Profile mouthpieces are made for the classically trained saxophonist. With a rich and flexible color spectrum, easy response, and effortless projection, the Profile allows saxophonists to shape their sound to fit the music of any era. Currently, the Profile line is solely available for soprano and alto saxophones.
