Great Reed

By A Detroit Jazz Player

from Detroit Area Michigan

Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

These reeds are great for jazz, and when paired with the right horn and mouthpiece they can be great for any style of playing. I play in my school's big band and wind ensemble and use theese reeds for both. They can offer a fantastic sounds for a lead alto player that cuts through the band without having too much of a bite, and they can also blend well with a concert group. For reference, I play a Mark VI alto, avintage Brilhart Ebolin mouthpiece, and these reeds strength 3. I highly recommend the V16's, especially for jazz players.

Pros

  • Great Cut

  • Play Right Out Of The Box

Cons

  • Pricey

Best Uses

  • Band
  • Jazz
  • Marching Band
  • Poprock

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!

      great

      By ROSEARITA PENNY

      from whiteville nc

      Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

      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.

          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.
