Alto Reed Variety Pack, 5 Vandoren Saxophone Reeds Selection Mix Sax Shack Gift

£18.21

Alto Reed Variety Pack, 5 Vandoren Saxophone Reeds Selection Mix Sax Shack Gift Brand new unused reeds.
Taken from a full box of reeds and combined to make up this exciting selection.

This fantastic value variety pack includes one each of the following five reeds:
1 x Vandoren Traditional – The choice of professionals, teachers and students the world over. This reed is designed to produce a quality of extremely pure sound due to a very thin reed tip (the area of reed with maximum vibration), balanced by a solid vertebral column (more cane in the area which climbs gradually to the heel).

1 x Vandoren Java Green – Developed in 1983 for jazz and popular music. A thicker tip and a more flexible palette* than the Traditional reed allows vibration over a larger surface area with maximum elasticity. This type of vertebral column gives the musician much greater playing flexibility, as the resultant elasticity zone is very large. (*Palette: zone where the waves are propagated with the greatest range. From the tip, the waves are absorbed further in the JAVA reed).

1 x Vandoren V16 – V16 Launched in 1993 to answer the demand of some American jazz musicians (a JAVA with even more wood. The V16 has a thicker tip than the traditional Vandoren reeds and a longer palette. Sound: more brilliant, more percussive, particularly well adapted to all the new styles of music. (See ‘Strength Options’ below)

1 x Vandoren Java Red – The driving force behind the JAVA “Filed – Red Cut” design was to offer more sonic possibilities to musicians while keeping the qualities of the original Java. More flexible than its elder version, with a little more tonal body, the JAVA “Filed – Red Cut” offers a full, rich, centered sound and excellent projection with an extremely precise attack. (See ‘Strength Options’ below)

1 x Vandoren ZZ – Developed in 2002, the ZZ jazz reed is immediately responsive without sacrificing the brightness or tone quality required for this style of music. The unique relationship between the heart and tip provides extraordinary color, great response and a durable life. (See ‘Strength Options’ below)
