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.

I play most jazz stuff on alto and tenor (both P. Mauriats), so when I got a Guardala King piece for my tenor, I thought the piece and my horn were a great match. However, I struggled to find a reed to match the wide-open tip opening of my Guardala. I tried a ZZ #3 and I liked it, but I had to use a little more air than i wanted to; so I tried a V16 #2.5 and it worked great! It gives a huge, fat tone throughout every register, and with this reed/piece combination my "useable" altissimo range can reach a Bb two octaves above the written range Bb! They are also incredibly consistent. I would recommend these reeds to anyone who loves having a great sound with great flexibility of colors.
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.
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 $$.
In my 18 years of experience as a saxophonist, I've not come across a finer reed. The response of the V16 series of reeds allows for better control and intonation. I especially recommend the V16 series for the soloist, as it produces a rich and full tone that you would need to fill a stage with 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.
