OVERVIEW

An industry standard alto saxophone reed.

Vandoren 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.

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.

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.

Such a "saxy" reed!

By 

from Colonial Heights, VA

Site Member

Comments about Vandoren Alto Saxophone Reeds:

The Vandoren reed is of the utmost quality and value. The variety in strengths gives the sax player a good variety of choices to find his/her comfort level in reeds. The reeds are made well, made to last, and allow the player to play at the fullest sound possible. The quality of the reed allows for multiple uses without much breakage or splitting. I would highly recommend these reeds to those who want that awesome, "saxy" sound.

My brand of reeds

By 

from Yucaipa, CA

Site Member

Comments about Vandoren Alto Saxophone Reeds:

I call these reeds my brand. My favorite part of these reeds is that they tend to be consistent. I have used other brands where some work just fine and others are terrible. These reeds are not like that. I feel assured that the whole box will work just fine for me.

Best by far!

By 

from Muncie, IN

Site Member

Comments about Vandoren Alto Saxophone Reeds:

I play these on strength 3 and 3.5. I used to play on the ZZs all the time and the Javas. But I prefer the regular blue box to any kind I've tried. I recommend these to high school students and college students who need good reeds. They last a long time and hold up to even my vigorous marching season! I go through just one box in one season instead of the 3 boxes with my old brand. Though I have played with only 3 different brands in the time I've played (10 years), I do highly recommend these.

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.

Best Reeds Avalible

By 

from Grand Rapids, Michigan

Site Member

Comments about Vandoren Alto Saxophone Reeds:

I'm a college student who know what a great reed feels and sounds like, when I first started to play sax I used Ricos because they were cheap and accessible. During my senior year of high school my band director told me a better quality reed would help my sound, so I bought a box of these reeds, after the first time playing them I thought "how did I ever play without them?" you will definitely notice a change in the way you sound, you will love it!. These are the only brand of reeds I use.

The Best Reeds I Have Ever Used.

By 

from CA

Site Member

Comments about Vandoren Alto Saxophone Reeds:

I tried the traditional Vandoren Alto Sax reeds about a year ago after doing research on different brands of reeds a couple of years ago and since then, I have played on this reed. It's reliable and the sound it gives me is excellent. I use them in combination with a Selmer Goldentone mouthpiece. Although the mouthpiece is made of plastic the sound I get out of this combination is amazing. The only thing I didn't like about the reeds is the fact that they are individually wrapped, not allowing me to pick out the good reeds from the bad ones.

Comments about Vandoren Alto Saxophone Reeds:

These reeds are the best value for your money. It's true that not every reed will play right out of the box; I've yet to find a brand where I can play every reed right from the start. But these reeds are consistantly the best of any that I've tried. They have a very complete sound and a quick response that makes them easy to play and appealing to listen to. I reccomend these reeeds to all of my friends and play on them myself.
