I have been playing La Voz reeds on Tenor exclusively for around 15 years now and have loved them. I play a Medium Hard reed with a Yanagisawa mouthpiece and it gives me a good edgy tone for the funk/rock/blues music that I play and plenty of flexibility to bend notes. The reeds last a good while too.
However, the last two boxes that purchased were straight up bad, with the majority of the reeds not being usable (to produce good sound). Some reeds were even visibly bad (skin from the bamboo continuing too far towards the tip) or didn't seem to be cut/filed evenly. Maybe the two boxes I bought were from the same fluke lot of bad reeds (purchased from the same store, although approximately a month apart), but I have to guess that these reeds now have quality control issues. I now am having to switch brands for the first time in my life.
But that said, if the consistency issues are dealt with, these are great reeds.
Great response and the resistance I've been looking for. I've switched over to a Jody Jazz DV 7 tenor and also alto mp. And with a medium LaVoz, my setup is clicking very well. The ligature matters to some point as well, but these reeds really feel right for me compared to the various Vandorens and Rico Royals. I found that the traditional Vandoren feels too oppressive, while the V16, ZZ, etc... are better for me, but I didn't get the balance I wanted.
For a number of years I have been searching for just the right reed to play Jazz with and at long last I found La Voz to be a fantastic match. La Voz reeds produce a pretty dark tone and I have found that they help produce a quality tone on the higher notes. They also make that "back-alley" sub tone sound fairly easy to play (if you?re into that). I don't play much classical saxophone, so I don't know how well La Voz performs in the classical area.
Simply put like all reeds LaVoz are not perfect! However one undeniable fact about reeds is that the more one sheds, time allotted to practice the better any reed becomes. There is no substitute, no mouthpiece, and no reed that can replace consistent practice PERIOD!!!, could have just a little tiny more heart which would help with the dark tones we sometimes need would be nice however a nice Florida Link may solve that nicely. It's a nice combo when I think about it. The Late great & beautiful Musician Michael Brecker played "LaVoz reed for many years & often like all of us he prayed to the great reed god in the sky for the perfect reed, only like the rest of us to find the solution in the practice room. To all musicians out there bringing a smile or a tear to the world with the beautiful music you make I wish you all the best, remember nothing delivers like CONSISTENT practice Best always Robert H. McGowan ... To the Magic of Scottish Tenor Player Tommy Smith!!
I've used LaVoz consistently, but in the last 15 years or so, been using Hemke as well (& Rico plasticovers for summer outdoor gigs), however, I keep coming back to LaVoz... As David Sanborn says, these reeds "have heart", and in my opinion, "sing" & with much "warmth". Never have liked Vandoren, regular are too stiff, Java just never did anything for me, and Rico was ok, but not anything special. Yes, they are inconsistent, so I often end up shaving & cutting most of them, especially as I'm playing them, gotta keep adjusting, trying to maintain that balance of ease of blowing, along with preventing the tip from flaccidity. And while I like Hemke, they are more consistent, & seem to wear out more slowly; I just keep coming back to LaVoz. As for mouthpieces, I've mainly used metal Bergs (currently 130/1 & gold Bari 8* tenor, 120/3 & Couf 10 alto, & Vandoren V25 or 35 on soprano), but also some hard rubber Lakey, Rico Royal, Meyer, etc.
