      Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

      I bought these Vandoren Alto Sax Reeds for my son who is in his high school marching and concert band. They were highly recommended by his band director. My son loves them and will not use any other brand.

      He has used other reeds in the past that have cracked after just one use. Vandoren reeds are better made, more resistant to cracking (so far) and sound better.

      Bottom line is that my son loves them and practices more using them.

          Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

          These reeds are thicker at the tip than most, which seems to give the high notes more overtones - a "thicker" sound. For a mouthpiece of mine with a wide tip opening, they cured the tendency to squeak. Excellent response across the whole range.

                  Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

                  This reed is very well balanced. Overall, unleashes a lot of your personal style out of your horn. I use size 2.5 mainly on jazz and combo type situations on my Meyer 6M, but also use size 3 on my Yamaha 5C mpc in concert band. If i had to pick one reed for the rest of my life, no doubt I'd pick these!

Excellent quality and sound is amazing. I only buy from MusiciansFriend.com! Ships the same day and usually receive it within 2-3 days. Great product and awesome service!!!!! Can't beat the price!!

                        I have bought these reeds for my daughter for the past 3 years. A full box will last her 11 months usually. She plays in marching band, concert band, jazz band, and all competitions in our area so she really puts these reeds to work. She did use Rico but she tells me the Vandoren is the best and she wants nothing else.

                        Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Advanced Reeds

                        By SaxMan93

                        from Southeast Missouri

                        Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

                        These reeds are really a do-all reed. It's great for jazz (that's what they were designed for), and for the right players, it's also good for symphonic, and classical applications. Tonguing attacks are a lot stronger than with the traditional vandoren reeds, and these respond like French-filed reeds. My only complaint is that only about 4 of the ten in the box were really exceptional reeds. The rest has some weird knotting under the surface of the wood, right along the vamp and heart, causing some odd frequencies to be emphasized, and occasional unwanted harmonic overtones. There isn't really anything advanced about these reeds, although intonation is excellent. Caution: you lose some control over individual notes and tricky nuances, and some things, like altissimo, are close to impossible with these reeds. What you should really do I try every reed you can; cane, synthetic, plastic covered, different cuts/brands/strengths. THEN you'll know what you like.
