Description

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!

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.
