    Comments about Vandoren Java Red Alto Saxophone Reeds:

    Got these for my Freshman HS son for the first time. He tells me he notices a positive difference - ease of play & smoother sound. He's normally used the blue box; but we decided to try this red box for a change; and he likes them very well. He would recommend them.

        Comments about Vandoren Java Red Alto Saxophone Reeds:

        These are by far the best reeds that I have found that don't cost more than 50 dollars a box. They really brighten up the tone and are pretty durable. The only downside is that they are less frequently cut right than say a Rico, but a good Vandoren Java cut reed is better than any Rico, in my opinion.

          Comments about Vandoren Java Red Alto Saxophone Reeds:

          I've been using Vandoran Java 2.5 reeds with a Meyer mouthpiece on an Alto sax for many years. Recently I discovered the Red Java version. Knowing I prefer a lighter touch to my reeds with out them being too thick to blow I checked the strength chart on the Reds. The 2.0 was exactly between a regular Java 2.0 and 2.5, so I decided to try a box. I'm very happy with the choice.

          The sound is round and full, but is very playable right at the start. The reed responds well to articulation. It held up well after several hours of playing. I'm quite pleased with the tone. I would say it is slightly more round and full than the regular Java's.

            Comments about Vandoren Java Red Alto Saxophone Reeds:

            I tried the Vandoren sampler pack to pick a jazz reed to go along with my Meyer mouthpiece, and I liked the Java Reds the best. They have a good, supportive sound throughout all registers and the response is excellent. I used them recently for a jazz concert and they did not fail me!
