OVERVIEW

Great sax reed for jazz musicians and gigging players.

Vandoren 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.


Order a box soon and see if they are the reed for you.

Java's are the most used pro reeds in the world. They last a long time, are consistant, box to box and fully responsive. I get five for five out of every box. Lots of players love 3Æs. I use 3 1/2Æs on my Morgan 9M with a .110 & quot; tip opening. Unreal!! A reed has to be perfectly flat to perform at it's best,so I scrape the flat side with reed knife to even out any irregularities. Javas distort the least of any brand! The cane is so very stable and not green or prematurely harvested like other brands. The best CANE makes the best reeds! The Java American cut is the sound of Jazz. These reeds make the Tenor saxophone really come alive in your hands!!

      Java greens pair great with my Van Doren V16 mouthpiece. You have to experiment with different brands, models and weights till you find the right match. Then of course you start all over again if you change mouthpieces.
