OVERVIEW

The Jazz Man's Choice.

Alexander DC reeds were designed with the Big Band and Blue Note eras in mind. The DC models have a profile with more wood on the tip, heart, and sides than the regular Superial model. This produces characteristics of a darker, more powerful, more solid tone core, an enhanced feeling of aliveness, and a singing, yet deep resonance. Made from fine wild grown Var cane, each and every reed table is checked under light for flatness and hand adjusted if necessary.

FEATURES
Double filed cut
Made from Arundo Donax wild cane

I am sold on the Alexander DC reeds for all my saxes

By 

from Rochester, NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about Alexander Reeds DC Soprano Saxophone Reeds:

I have over 14 boxes of the Alexander reeds and out of all that I have used, I have not had a discard yet. I prefer the DC because it has a darker sound and is not as bright as the NY or the Superial although I still use the Superials once in awhile.

Great reeds -- strength inconsistent

By

Comments about Alexander Reeds DC Soprano Saxophone Reeds:

I had bought some of these about three years ago, in #3 strength. They were a bit too soft. The other day I ordered some in #3.5, figuring they'd be just right. To my surprise, they were quite a bit too hard (on the same mouthpiece). I found a "virgin" #3 from the earlier batch and tried it. I'll swear the difference is at least a whole strength, not a half strength. Doesn't exactly inspire confidence!

Reliable without high cost

Comments about Alexander Reeds DC Soprano Saxophone Reeds:

In the past, I always kept bunches of reeds in my sax case, because about a third of them turned out to be just plain lousy reeds. I am yet to have a bad Alexander reed. They are extremely consistent in quality.
