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!!

Have been using the VD Java green box for years but within the past year or so have noted a difference in them. Less consistent, need to be literally soaked before playing. Not a happy experience every time.

          Comments about Vandoren Java Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

          I really like the way these reeds sound and feel. I use various reeds for different sounds, but I always play the Javas for jazz or rock. Yes, there is some inconsistency, but I find that with any reeds and other brands, also. Been playing these for years, and highly recommend them.

          Comments about Vandoren Java Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

          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.
