Vandoren Java Tenor Saxophone ReedsVandoren Java Red tenor sax reeds have more flexibility and tonal body and produces a full, rich, centered sound with phenomenal projection and extremely precise attacks. The Java Red will take your sound to a whole new level.The Vandoren Java Red have a thicker extremity than traditional reeds. In addition, the pallet, or the area where the waves are propagated with the greatest range are more flexible than traditional reeds. The name of these reeds was derived through the conflation of the word "jazz" and the word "variety." It is made with the working musician in mind, and for the jazz musician as well. The perfect customer for this reed then would be the working jazz musician! And thanks to those fans who still pay cover charges at jazz joints and buy jazz CDs, that sometimes neglected demographic manages to hang on still.

These reeds allow me to keep up with the trumpets and bones in a typical brass-rock ensemble. There is consistent bright sound and projection using a 6* Florida Otto Link compared to some other reeds. My 60s Signet tenor has the right amount of edge and clarity for a brass-rock ensemble. Even though these reeds let you belt out your sound, I have not had any difficulty in dropping down on a decrescendo to back up a vocalist.
I've been playing on Java's for a couple years now, and i've played on different mouthpieces too. These reeds were okay on a yamaha stock mouthpiece, but it doesn't give you a defined sound. I tried these on an otto Link 7* and i really didn't think notice anything good at all, other than it was brighter than the yamaha. Finally, i played on, and still do, on a Vandoren V16 metal tenor sax mouthpiece, (T55) and the sound is really good, it works for any jazz or rock music. I think it is an amazing sound altogether for Funk. No i'm not a Vandoren employee, I just think the mouthpiece and the reed go Really good together.
Good reed, generally consistent with good brightness and resonance.
Even on a Selmer C* (the only mouth piece I have right now, because I just bought a YTS-62 Tenor and now I?m broke) I can get the most tasty sound for jazz. I?m looking at a Vandoren V16 mouth piece for jazz; the reviews are great for it, as always though the equipment for jazz is a little bit tougher to play on than regular classic equipment. I didn?t have a problem switching from the regular blue box Vandoren reeds to these between jazz band and concert band though. A couple of pals of mine do. Rico reeds have never given me the same kind of freedom. A little tip too, get cardboard when you buy new reeds like these and rub that cardboard on the back of each reed as if you were sanding it down, which technically you are, just don?t use sand paper or you will murder your reeds. But if you use cardboard on them, the back of those reeds will come off feeling like glass and they'll even play better! Can you imagine better?
I love Vandoren Java?s; I play on a 3 strength reed with a Selmer S80 mouthpiece. The sound is richer, and these reeds make it easy to play for longer periods of time with high tone quality. WWBW has them so much cheaper than my local store, so it's a great buy.
