Vandoren Alto Saxophone ReedsVandoren SR21 Traditional series alto reeds are characterized by a pure sound that is a result of a very thin reed tip that is balanced by a solid vertical column. They are consistent and reliable, and are a favorite of many band and orchestra directors and even many professionals. Recognizable by the distinctive French-style file cut, they are great for all-around use, from the eager student to busy professional, from classical to jazz.

These reeds can work for just about everything: marching, concert, and jazz music. For a relatively cheap price, they are good, and I would recommend them the most to students.
These reeds work perfect. Never listen to anything negatively said about these reeds. They are AMAZING. I use 2.5's on a Beechler Diamond Inlay mouthpiece and it sings. It could be me, but this setup allows me to provide a rich, bright sound that that makes me sound like a pro! These reeds also last a while and just about every reed in the box plays to the full extent of the Vandoren name. (When I say this I mean that anything that else in the box plays like an average OK reed. But still there's only 1 or 2 of these in a box.)So go ahead, grab a box, and start playing!
My dad has used the "classic" Vandorens for the past 40+ years in his classical clarinet playing, and he turned me on to the saxophone reeds when I was very young. I've tried others - Alexander Superials, Ricos, the synthetic things, the plastic-covered things...nothing equals the response I've had with Vandorens. Using a 4 on alto and tenor and 3.5 on clarinet, I achieve a distinctively dark sound that, I think, is very pleasing compared to the brassy sound a softer reed offers. Plus, the harder strength makes me work my chops, and isn't that always a good thing?
When it comes to Vandoren reeds, when they are good, they play great and last a long time. When you have bad reeds, it is hard to play. Each box is very inconsistent when it comes to how many playable reeds there are in a box of 10. As a recent college saxophone graduate, I became more noticeable as to how unbalanced one reed might be. One side would be thicker than the other. In college, I learned how to adjust reeds with a reed knife and reed rush. I would suggest everyone learn this technique with Vandoren reeds. When I adjusted my reeds, I could get almost every reed in a box to play. Some reeds are still going to be hopeless. For the price, they are high quality reeds, but not all playable out of the box. I recommend these reeds to my students.
Ok, I have experienced all kinds of reeds: Chinese, Ricos, Vandorens, plastics, etc. So far, I found Vandoren Traditional to be the most consistent and reliable out of most reeds. The other Vandorens are more like specialties; traditional is just for everything. I lived with this reed (brand, of course) for my entire career of sax playing, and it helped me develop a thick embouchure (I use 4's now). This reed doesn't go too well with marching bands, since it doesn't produce a loud sound if your embouchure is in sync with the thickness. However, this reed is seriously recommended, because no reed is like it.
