These are my absolute favorite reeds. Though I haven't been playing for too long, I've tried quite a few different reeds, trying to find the best for marching band, jazz band, region band, etc. and I find these to be EXTREMELY versatile. They've got the perfect volume for marching band without being bright. In the concert scene, they've got a full tone which blends beautifully with French horns, though you've got to find a nice ligature (I use a Rovner dark), and when it comes to jazz or rock or anything where you just feel like jammin' out, these reeds can really let loose. Overall, I love these reeds, though; it does take some time getting used to. Expect to spend quite a bit of time adjusting yourself to get what you want from these reeds.

Service and delivery comments:

I paid for 2 day delivery, but the delivery was actually at the 5 day point. My mistake. Won't do that again. I live close to a UPS hub, so standard deliveries usually come quicker than 5 days.

    Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

    My son has been playing for almost 6 years. Between band in school, private lessons, and unknown hours of practice, and now, marching band, these reeds are his favorite. The tonal quality, the construction, all of it, he loves. We've always had him on vandoren reeds, because his father, another sax player, has always preferred them, but for the last 6 months, these have become his "must have" reeds.

          Teacher recommended for my son to do jazz riffs more easily and they work very well. He says given his asthma, these actually make a big difference for his breathing. He is decent musician - taking 4 years.

          Great Reed

          By 

          from Gill, MA

          Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

          These reeds are great. They have a slightly brighter sound (compare to the vandoren traditionals) with the right amount of warmness. They gave me the ability to get a cannonball type of sound when I blow harder and a Paul Desmond type of warm sound when I blow softly. They are fairly consistent. My setup is a meyer 6m with V16 3 and they pair well together.

          well when i first got these for Christmas along with other sax stuff i was so excited so i opened one up put it in my mouth but i noticed it was chipped but it played mostly fine so i took out another reed, it was not chipped put it in and played it, and wow it has a wonderful tone especially with high notes. this reed brand is amazing and even though a reed was chipped i would rate these reeds a 5

          Comments about Vandoren Alto Sax V16 Reeds:

          These are very durable and quality reeds. I have used these in marching,jazz and concert band(size 3.5 and with different MP's). I would recommend these over Blue Box Vandorens(sorry for those who like Blue Box better). beginners and proffesionals could get good sound out of these reeds really. Longest life-span i've gotten out of these reeds is 1 1/2-2 weeks. Quality product!

          I've been playing Rico reeds for many years now, and once I got my hands on these Vandoren V16 reeds, I've never gone back. They play so beautifully. I noticed great improvement with my tone and overall playing. If you really know what you're doing, you would pick up a pack of these reads!
