Vandoren V16 Saxophone Reeds
Launched in 1993 to answer the demand of some American jazz musicians (a JAVA with even more wood)
Thicker tip than the traditional Vandoren reeds and a longer pallet.
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 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!
