                  He likes the way each reed is packaged individually so it stays like new until you are ready to use it.

                  Very versatile

                  By 

                  from Springfield, VA

                  Comments about Vandoren Alto Saxophone Reeds:

                  I used these exclusively back when I played in high school. I was on a Bundy II (nightmare) so the only thing I could afford to spend extra on was reeds and mouthpieces. And let me tell you, these made an immediate improvement compared to cheaper Rico reeds.This was a great reed, definitely built for classical playing. However, for jazz stuff I used my teeth to compress the area of the reed right behind the tip where it started to thicken for a brighter tone. This worked well and had the added benefit of being easier to tongue and prolonging the life of the reed. I even used that for my brief fling in a ska band.Speaking of the thinner tip, it makes articulation very easy. Also, I was never fast on the tongue and tended to do aggressive double tonguing. The only complaint I had was that the thinner tip was more prone to chipping with my double tonguing - a small sacrifice for great sound and playability.Overall a great reed with a very warm sound. This was one of the reasons I was able to hold down first chair with a crappy Bundy II.

                  Comments about Vandoren Alto Saxophone Reeds:

                  These reeds are very nice and i don't use anything else. I play on strength 3 reeds and they work fine. My only complaint is that sometimes there are a few bad reeds, but other than that they're a good buy.

                  Comments about Vandoren Alto Saxophone Reeds:

                  I used to play on 2 1/2's but I bought a pack of these reeds, 3 hardness and now whenever I play, I sqweek all the time. It usually goes away when I play really loud but I can't play soft anymore. I'll ask my band director tomorrow and see what he thinks though. Otherwise these are great reeds! Tip is very even and well formed.
