                    Very versatile

                    By sunken_treasure94

                    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.
