Great Reed

By 

from Gill, MA

Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

These reeds are great. They have a slightly brighter sound (compare to the vandoren traditionals) with the right amount of warmness. They gave me the ability to get a cannonball type of sound when I blow harder and a Paul Desmond type of warm sound when I blow softly. They are fairly consistent. My setup is a meyer 6m with V16 3 and they pair well together.

Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

well when i first got these for Christmas along with other sax stuff i was so excited so i opened one up put it in my mouth but i noticed it was chipped but it played mostly fine so i took out another reed, it was not chipped put it in and played it, and wow it has a wonderful tone especially with high notes. this reed brand is amazing and even though a reed was chipped i would rate these reeds a 5

DURABLE!

Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

These are very durable and quality reeds. I have used these in marching,jazz and concert band(size 3.5 and with different MP's). I would recommend these over Blue Box Vandorens(sorry for those who like Blue Box better). beginners and proffesionals could get good sound out of these reeds really. Longest life-span i've gotten out of these reeds is 1 1/2-2 weeks. Quality product!

what a change

Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

I've been playing Rico reeds for many years now, and once I got my hands on these Vandoren V16 reeds, I've never gone back. They play so beautifully. I noticed great improvement with my tone and overall playing. If you really know what you're doing, you would pick up a pack of these reads!

Great, if you know how to use it.

Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

These are my absolute favorite reeds. Though I haven't been playing for too long, I've tried quite a few different reeds, trying to find the best for marching band, jazz band, region band, etc. and I find these to be EXTREMELY versatile. They've got the perfect volume for marching band without being bright. In the concert scene, they've got a full tone which blends beautifully with French horns, though you've got to find a nice ligature (I use a Rovner dark), and when it comes to jazz or rock or anything where you just feel like jammin' out, these reeds can really let loose. Overall, I love these reeds, though; it does take some time getting used to. Expect to spend quite a bit of time adjusting yourself to get what you want from these reeds.

Great overall reed

By 

from Columbus

Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

I began as a classical player and now am mainly jazz. These reeds are appropriate for either type of playing. While I have occasionally found a box that has only 3-4 decent reeds, generally the quality is good. I started out using the traditional Vandoren reeds and switched to these because I find that they allow for greater projection and a more focused tone which is essential for jazz playing, and which I find now has greatly improved the sound of my classical work as well.

I love these reeds!

By

Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

These are high quality reeds. They project well and last a long time. Out of a box of 10, you will find at least six or seven very good reeds that will respond the way you need them to. I play a Yanagisawa A9930 alto sax with the stock mouthpiece, and these reeds give me everything I need. I don't plan on changing anytime soon.

Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

I play alto saxophone for jazz band in my high school and my director suggested these reeds for me. I bought some, and when I tried them I could hear the difference in the sound. They are truly amazing reeds and I don't think I will switch to anything else anytime soon.
