Vandoren ZZ Alto Saxophone ReedsVan Doren ZZ alto saxophone reeds are designed to supply what are often mutually opposing characteristics in a reed--depth of tone and immediate response. Added to this seemingly impossible solution to one of the reed musician's most enduring conundrums is the fact that ZZ reeds are free blowing and easy to play. Impossible you say? Put the lie to this bold claim if you can. All that’s left for you to do is play to become a believer.Vandoren's ZZ reeds feature a unique relationship between the heart of the reed, where the tone is produced, and the thickness of the tip, which is responsible for vibration. The result is a reed with extraordinary tone and immediate response that is free-blowing even in the altissimo range. The ZZ reeds accomplish this immediate response without sacrificing brightness or tone quality.Professional saxophonists like L.A. recording artist Gary Foster, Delmark recording artist Frank Catalano, and many others have made the switch to Vandoren’s ZZ reeds for both live performances and studio recordings. According to a Vandoren reeds chart, ZZ reeds feel one-half strength less thick in comparison to Vandoren Traditional reeds, and run even in strength with JAVA reeds. For example, a Vandoren ZZ strength 3 reed would feel equivalent to a Vandoren Traditional in strength 2.5.

I recently switched over from Javas to ZZs and the difference was instantly noticable. I use 2.5 strength reeds with my Meyer Metal 7J mouthpiece and the response is extraordinary. All the way from the low register to altissimos these reeds give a great sound. They project enough for me to play lead alto in my jazz band without being too bright. I would recommend them for any jazz musician.
These are the most amazing reeds I have ever played on. They are so easy to break in and they produce an amazing sound and tone. It takes such little air to produce a sound and they last a long time. This is definitely my favorite reed.
I love these reeds. They're some of the best I've ever played on. If you add the double cut (that line you'll find on standard blue box reeds) you'll find that it has the best sound for classical reeds. The standard ZZ is also great for Jazz. They sound at least as good as Java's and last much longer.
These ZZ reeds are some of the best I have ever played on. With my Selmer E mouthpiece and my Rovner leather ligature, I can play any genre without changing my set up. The only reeds I like better are my home made reeds I hand carve. These are simply amazing. They are great for the Selmer Reference 54 Model 72 sax.
I tried the ZZ reeds about a year ago and have been playing nothing else since. They play well right out of the box, require very little break in time and hold up better than the Java reeds. Even though they are classified a "jazz" reed, I use them for concert work as well and I am very satisfied with the response. I have all of my saxophone students play them. I highly recommend this reed!
