Designed to the most exacting specifications, these reeds deliver all the depth and warmth that elite players demand. Our new Signature Series Reeds are the ideal solution for elite players looking for that something extra who havent yet found the perfect sound with our other reeds.
Months of testing with top professionals including Larry Combs and Barnaby Robson have demonstrated that the new reeds can add another dimension to the already rich Legere sound. Mr. Combs, former Principal Clarinet in Chicago, has said that the new reeds feel and sound very natural.
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.
* Huge sound with powerful projection
* Select grade cane for unsurpassed durability & longevity
* Outstanding clarity, control and projection

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
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!
