OVERVIEW

Flexible pallet with thicker extremity.

Vandoren Java tenor sax reeds have more flexibility and tonal body and produces a full, rich, centered sound with phenomenal projection and extremely precise attacks. The Java Red will take your sound to a whole new level.

The Vandoren Java reeds have a thicker extremity than traditional reeds. In addition, the pallet, or the area where the waves are propagated with the greatest range are more flexible than traditional reeds. The name of these reeds was derived through the conflation of the word "jazz" and the word "variety."


Order a box soon and see if they are the reed for you.

    When I buy reeds I can expect to get one to two good ones out of every five. On this purchase four out of the five reeds were excellent.

              Best value over all.
              Vandoren Java Green Box reeds are the best I have tried yet. They give the most consistent sound and are durable. I've tried the Red Box, ZZ standard blue box, Rico Royal, and these are by far the best!

              Comments about Vandoren Java Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

              I mostly play jazz on my sax, and up until this point i had been using Rico reeds. These are so much better. I don't know why I didn't switch earlier. These are easier to play on and sound much better. If you're even reading this review, just go pick up a pack.

              I'm 19 and i have been playing jazz for 9 years. These are by far my favorite reeds to play on, and i have tried many. My advice is to pick yourself up otto link 7* or 8* and put one of these bad boys on it. The volume is amazing and great for big band
