Vandoren Java Red Alto Saxophone ReedsVandoren Java Red alto saxophone reeds are Vandoren's first file-cut jazz reed, Java Red reeds have more flexibility and tonal body and produce a full, rich, centered sound with phenomenal projection and extremely precise attacks. They have a thicker extremity and a more flexible pallet than Van Doren's Traditional series, and they allow greater vibration over a larger surface area with maximum elasticity. This type of vertebral column gives the musician much greater playing flexibility, as the resultant elasticity zone is very large. The Java Red will take your sound to a whole new level.

When I first used one of these reeds, I nearly fainted because of the rich, vibrant, and warm sound. But the one thing I don't get is why most artists say that vandoren reeds can only be used up to three times. One reed has been lasting me almost three weeks now and it still sounds incredible. There's really nothing else to say other than the fact that these reeds will really surprise you when you see how long they can really last.
The Java Red reed is a very good product that offers a fat resonant sound throughout the range of the horn. I generally can find 8 to 9 reeds out of a box because I use an ATG kit to refinish reeds most reed brands are finished poorly. Once you master refinishing your reeds you'll be amazed at the improved quality of your sound. I recommend that you number and rotate your reeds throughout the week so that you never use the same reed two days in a row, this way reeds will last much longer. Also use the less desirable reeds for practice only and plan on using two different reeds for each practice session.
These reeds are amazing! i always used Rico reeds and they where great but when i tried out these Vandoren Java Red's i felt like i entered a whole new world. The sound that these reeds make are phenomenal. From low notes to mid and high notes, the sound and tone quality you get out of these reeds are incredible. I've been playing for eight years in Jazz Band, Concert Band and even Marching Band, and these reeds by far are the best in all aspects indoor and outdoor. In any situation i was in, from chipping a reed to an old used reed, Vandoren reeds where able to back me up, the sound still came out clean and was clean enough to get me buy any trouble. I bought sizes 2 1/2 and 3, both are good but the 2 1/2 get a little raspy in the high notes. The size 3's are perfect for me, they hit the high notes and altissimo notes perfectly just how i want them, mid notes sound amazing, and low notes, lets just say they play for themselves, sound rich, fat, beautiful. I highly recommend these reeds to anyone from beginner to experienced, i give these reeds 5 stars. You won't be disappointed with these reeds, i believe Vandoren make thee best reeds ever.
I have been looking for a quality jazz reed to use in combination with my Rico Royal Graftonite mouthpiece and Yamaha YAS 23, and all I can say is WOW! When needed, the "attack" is instantaneous, and the reed has responded excellently to everything I have demmanded of it as a jazz musician, including both tone and intonation.
I will now be getting the same reeds for my soprano and tenor, using the same graftonite mouthpieces, and I look forward to their performance "debut" in the near future!
From the minute I took these out of the package, they blew me away with the ease of playing each register (low and high) and the altissimo ease as well. I played a Java Red cut alongside a Rico Reserve reed and by far, the Java Red plays much better. It's a versatile reed - it's smooth and dark enough to use for a classic concert band or symphonic band, but just enough edge to use for a jazz band without having to sacrifice tonal quality. Fantastic reeds!
