Description
Thick, strong reed for a thick, strong sound.

Vandoren Tenor Sax V16 Reeds
The 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.

"These are great reeds"

If you are looking for an aggressive, thick sound, these are the reeds for you. The middle register is very muscular, much more so than a lot of other reeds, like ZZs or Javas. I spend a lot of time in the altissimo register(probably more than I should), and with less work than with most reeds I've played on, I can access my current range of up to the high Eb above the natural range of the horn. The only downside is that once you get down to low C# or so and lower than that, the sound can be almost too chunky, and difficult to control until you get used to it.

"V16s = bad vibes"

I've been a tenor saxophonist some 30 years and played most of the major reed manufacturers' products. Vandoren standard has emerged as my favorite for producing a big dusky classic tenor sound. Recently, my local supplier ran out-- so I tried some V16s. I found every single one of them to be weak in the tip--unamenable to restoration. Waste of $$.

"Best Reeds I've Played"

I started playing V16s my freshman year in high school, so it's been about 7 years and counting. The reason I like these reeds so much is that they require little more than a simple break-in period and they then play for a very long time. Usually consistency of playability is about 4 or 5 per box (of 5), which is pretty much unheard of for saxophone reeds. I love the way V16s sound and react - they give you massive tonal and dynamic flexibility while keeping the sound centered, and the response is great. I play them on every saxophone, #3.

"Sorry to offend those who like these reeds, but I am fed up"

Ever since the new individually wrapped reeds came on the marked these reeds have been HORRIBLE. I used to play V16s (3.5) on tenor with a Vintage Otto Link Rubber Piece and found them to have a nice full sound. Since they've been individually wrapped, the cane doesn't age right or something, and every reed arrives as a soggy mess. Honestly, I went through 2 full boxes recently and did not find a SINGLE reed that didn't feel like I was playing a stick I could have picked up from my lawn. For shame, Vandoren! I really believe they have sacrificed the quality of their cane, probably cutting the requisite aging time down to get more reeds out the door. I will say that I tried the new red box java reeds and they play great. I've realized the most important factor in a good reed is not it's cut as much as it is the quality and density of the cane. The more dense, the more focused and resonant the sound (generally). You can tell this by putting the reed in your mouth and sucking. If you can easily pull air through the reed, it is very porous and not dense. That's the problem with these Vandorens. I am VERY disappointed with Vandoren, and am now buying Rico Reserve (great cane quality, plus they tell you on the package when the reed was made).

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.
