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."

Comments about Vandoren JAVA Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

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!

GREAT BUY

By JTorres

from Queen Creek, AZ

Comments about Vandoren JAVA Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

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

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 have been using Vandoren JAVA reeds for my Alto Sax with #3, and now my Tenor with the 2.5. They are so good I don't worry about having to check the quality. They do produce a great sound.
