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.

"Great Playing Reeds"

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.

"The BEST Reeds!"

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!

"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.

"Vandorin V16's rock"

I?ve been playing for quite while and started using V16's in high school. I recently had to switch to another brand temporarily (very popular for beginners R ** O)because I forgot to re-order and didn?t get my V16's on time, and the only music store open that day only carried (cheap) reeds. Oh what a difference it was. I went thru 3 in one show. 1 didn't play worth a darn; the other two wore out fast. I would almost have rather not played. Ok just kidding show must go on right. Long story short- the tone and response on the V16's is hard to beat- and at the price they are offered here from WWBW you can't beat that anywhere. If carrying a horn section on your back and have the need to belch out some fat sax licks you won't find much anything better for the price. I give V16's my highest recommendation and look forward to using what?s left of my box of R**o's for something more suitable... Like starting my BBQ grill.

"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).
