Vandoren Java Red Alto Saxophone Reeds

Vandoren Java Red alto saxophone reeds are Vandoren's first file-cut jazz reed, Java Red reeds have more flexibility and tonal body and produce a full, rich, centered sound with phenomenal projection and extremely precise attacks. They have a thicker extremity and a more flexible pallet than Van Doren's Traditional series, and they allow greater vibration over a larger surface area with maximum elasticity. This type of vertebral column gives the musician much greater playing flexibility, as the resultant elasticity zone is very large. The Java Red will take your sound to a whole new level.

I Tried It, I Liked It; I'm not Mikey

By JazzManKoKo from Burlington, CT on 3/11/2010 7:31:25 PM

So, I thought I'd try these new reeds as a way to step up a half step. I read that the Red's are suppose to be a little stronger than the rating. For example, I had been playing on the standard Java reeds in a 2.5 and was going to experiment with a 3, but the Reds are suppose to give us a half step or 2.75? It was worth a shot right. I really like these reeds. They give me a better tone and a tighter response. I'm gonna stick with these a while.
