Vandoren Tenor Sax V16 ReedsThe Vandoren V16 tenor sax reed is the thickest Vandoren reed cut. The thicker cut creates a deep, harmonically rich sound with lots of attack. It addition, the thicker cut lends a depth and color to the sound that is truly special. Some saxophonists prefer a less ornamented sound than the one that V16 reeds promote, but if you can become accustomed to the V16's properties and tame them, it just may become essential equipment for your unique signature sound.

The V16 is just a great playing reed. It responds well in all registers, from bottom subtones through the altissimo. These are not subtle reeds. They're louder and brighter than any other wooden reed I've found. However, bright is in, so this is not necessarily a bad thing. And, these reeds still have lots of body and can get a pretty sound when needed. It may even be a good choice for classical players that tend to sound too dark or stuffy on their set up.
I agree with all of the other positive reviewers of this reed. Just recently I was reminded of how good this reed is when I had to use another brand for a few days. I was so glad to get my next box of V16's in the mail! I immediately tossed the other brand and with relief, put a V16 on my tenor saxophone!
I've used these tenor reeds for years with great results. Very robust sound that is perfect for the R&B type playing I do. But I do not like the new packaging at all.....it is total overkill. The box is much larger than it needs to be (very wasteful) and the wrapping of each reed in an individual foil pouch (also very wasteful and a nuisance) to seal it at a supposed "ideal" humidity level is a crock in my opinion. The reeds play exactly as they did before. Tell Vandoren to go back to the old packaging (a lot more eco-friendly I'm sure) and lower their already ridiculous prices!!
I am not primarily a sax player, but my position requires a lot of sax playing in a VERY STRONG section, and I find these reeds to be the most suitable of all I've tried (and believe me I've spent the GNP of a small country trying different sax reeds). They are stable in pitch, responsive in all registers, and can be as up front as you need them to be without sacrificing controlability. As a great bonus, I find them to be more consistent reed-to-reed than most others, although you're still likely to find one seriously too hard or soft in each box.
This is a great reed! I have been playing for many years and really have a big sound when it comes to pep band. It really amazed me how thick this reed was compared to my other brands. A few days to break it in and when I tried it out for the first time at pep band, my sound overwhelmed the gym, absolutely crazy. The V16's really got something else, your volume can just keep going up and there is no limit. Very precise articulation. Also, my pep reeds usually get dinged up a bit and I am amazed how many times i bumped it, thinking I had chipped the reed, but alas! The reed survives and is STILL in perfect condition after 4 months, getting played 2-3 times a week! Very impressed by the quality of the Vandoren V16 reeds.
