    Comments about Vandoren Tenor Sax V16 Reeds:

    Recently a new owner of a Mark VI Tenor, I needed to find an appropriate reed to use with an 8 * opening on my Bob Mintzer Navarro mouthpiece. I have been trying 3.5 and 3 strength Alexander Superial reeds, but no matter what I couldn't seem to get a consistent sound after break in. Then I noticed that Kirk Whalum really liked the V16, I thought I would try a box. Having played 8* Super Gonz on another Selmer, I know I am getting real close to my desired sound. I may end up trying a box of Java Red as well, but there is no question the quality and sound is there.

    van doren v-16 tenor reeds

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Vandoren Tenor Sax V16 Reeds:

    These are the most consistent reeds I've ever played. They run about one-half strength stiffer than the Van Doren ZZ reeds. I liked the ZZ's because they are responsive, but they tend to collapse prematurely. The V-16's really retain their initial crispness.
