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!
