OVERVIEW

Big, bold sound and increased sustaining power for your alto sax.

The New York series of Alexander reeds are made with high-grade South France cane and a redesigned tip and profile, producing a big and bold sound, full response throughout the registers, and the type of vibrant, solid tone traditionally associated with that of the New York music scene. The tip is somewhat harder than Alexander's Superial DC, giving it exceptional sustaining power, especially in the high end of the alto saxophone's range.

The NY sax reed was born following extensive conversations and correspondence between Tom Alexander and the legendary late, great jazz saxophone genius Michael Brecker some years ago. Without Michael's gracious and invaluable feedback after experimenting with different prototype designs, this saxophone reed simply would not have come into existence.

NY Sax Reeds were also thoroughly field tested by subjecting them to many months of on-the-job playing in the concert and tour performances of several Alexander World Artists who gave it their seal of approval and use it as their primary reed today.

    Comments about Alexander Reeds New York Alto Saxophone Reeds:

    I am a highschool student so I practice many hours a day and I can say that these reeds outlast many of the other popular reeds such as Vandoren. I used to play on Vandoren reeds, but ever since I switched over to NY Alexander, I've been getting a better, darker sound and I can also projection my sound way better, and also they are much more affordable. By far one of the best reeds on the market.

    Comments about Alexander Reeds New York Alto Saxophone Reeds:

    Work right out of the box. Good on low and high notes. Note that they are a tiny bit softer than other reeds so you might need to order 1/2 strength higher.

    Comments about Alexander Reeds New York Alto Saxophone Reeds:

    I have been a fan of Alexander reeds for many years now and have always leaned towards filed reeds; Alexander Superial DC. I decided to give these reeds a try just to try a single cut reed. I purchased the New York No. 3's to use on my 40-yr old Conn alto and Meyer 5M, and New York No. 3's on my 40-yr old Keilwerth Tenor and Otto Link Super Tone Master NY 8. Immediately these reeds complimented my sound like no other, I had a Phil Woods/Lou Donaldson tone on my alto and a Michael Brecker/Ernie Watts tone on my tenor. These reeds have been a real boon to my playing and articulation. If you play Vandoren Traditional reeds you can use the same strength with the Alexander Superial New York reeds and you will immediately have improved tone, ease of response and articulation.
