SKU: ADCASX Categories: , ,

Description

These high quality reeds offered in three styles to best fit the players needs. 

The Classique offers a classically grounded performance that produces a warm, dynamically balanced, sonorously beautiful tone.

The Superial is in line with the tonal concept of the American style single cut reeds with a more developed heart and rear vamp area producing a reed tha will last a long time and will tend to generate a lot of spring and natural resistance needed for a really big sound.

The DC model has a slightly harder tip and more wood in the heart and sides than Superial and therefore produces a more solid tonal core, enhanced projection and power, and a little darker harmonic palette.

See pictures of each style below.

Unprecedented Tone, Flexibility and Response.
The D'Addario Select Jazz cut features a strong, well-defined heart and longer vamp, yielding unprecedented projection and a clear, fat tone, with unsurpassed flexibility and lightning-fast response. Available with or without a French file. The file is the area behind the vamp where the bark is sanded off in a straight line. It provides freedom of response, especially in the low register, making soft attacks and subtones easier. The file also makes the tone slightly brighter.

Features Include:
* Huge sound with powerful projection
* Select grade cane for unsurpassed durability & longevity
* Outstanding clarity, control and projection
* Precise third strength grading provides unparalleled consistency
* Optimized for contemporary and traditional jazz mouthpieces

A JAVA with even more wood. 



Thicker tip than the traditional Vandoren reeds and a longer cut. 



Sound: more brilliant, more percussive, particularly well adapted to all the new styles of music 



Phil WOODS: 



Nelson Hill gave me a Vandoren V16! He said, Try it, you'll like it. I tried it. I like it! Eureka! At last, a sensible reed! They feel good and the percentage of usable reeds is incredible. Somebody is paying attention and I sleep a little better knowing that! The base is thicker giving my old, stretched ligature a better grip and the intonation, always a Vandoren tradition, remains true and spot on! 



Clear Tone... Instant Response 





Designed to resist moisture and climate changes, Plasticover is ideal for doublers who need to make quick changes between instruments, and for use in outdoor ensembles such as marching bands. 









Whether in moist tropics or in desert heat, Plasticover responds instantly. The durable, plastic coating also provides a clear, projecting tone, making Plasticover a favorite with jazz, studio and pop musicians. 









Features: 





* Professional-quality cane reed 





* Most flexible grade of cane for instant response 





* French-filed for fast response 





* Coated with plastic to resist changes in moisture and climate 





* Coating provides durability and clear tone

Working with the legendary Jazz saxophone genius, Michael Brecker, the result is a new reed made with our same high grade S. France cane - a model which would add a new and different dimension to the tonal universe of our reeds.

 

The Alexander NY model features a redesigned tip and profile which produces a big and bold sound, full response throughout the registers and the type of vibrant, solid tone traditionally associated with that of the New York music scene.  


The tip is somewhat harder than Superial DC which gives it a sustaining power, especially in the high end of the h
