OVERVIEW

An industry standard alto saxophone reed.

Vandoren SR21 Traditional series alto reeds are characterized by a pure sound that is a result of a very thin reed tip that is balanced by a solid vertical column. They are consistent and reliable, and are a favorite of many band and orchestra directors and even many professionals. Recognizable by the distinctive French-style file cut, they are great for all-around use, from the eager student to busy professional, from classical to jazz.

Ok, I have experienced all kinds of reeds: Chinese, Ricos, Vandorens, plastics, etc. So far, I found Vandoren Traditional to be the most consistent and reliable out of most reeds. The other Vandorens are more like specialties; traditional is just for everything. I lived with this reed (brand, of course) for my entire career of sax playing, and it helped me develop a thick embouchure (I use 4's now). This reed doesn't go too well with marching bands, since it doesn't produce a loud sound if your embouchure is in sync with the thickness. However, this reed is seriously recommended, because no reed is like it.

When it comes to Vandoren reeds, when they are good, they play great and last a long time. When you have bad reeds, it is hard to play. Each box is very inconsistent when it comes to how many playable reeds there are in a box of 10. As a recent college saxophone graduate, I became more noticeable as to how unbalanced one reed might be. One side would be thicker than the other. In college, I learned how to adjust reeds with a reed knife and reed rush. I would suggest everyone learn this technique with Vandoren reeds. When I adjusted my reeds, I could get almost every reed in a box to play. Some reeds are still going to be hopeless. For the price, they are high quality reeds, but not all playable out of the box. I recommend these reeds to my students.

Comments about Vandoren Alto Saxophone Reeds:

I have two children that play the saxophone, and this is the only brand either have used. Their music teacher recommended them, and have never been disappointed. Their teacher also showed them how to edit reeds that are not perfect with a reed knife. That has certainly helped!

  • Very consistent in strength and quality.

Cons

  • None!

Best Uses

  • Classical, jazz, R&B.

Comments about Vandoren Alto Saxophone Reeds:

I have played on Vandoren reeds for almost 50 years. I've tried other brands but I always come back to Vandoren. Not the cheapest by any means, but as they say, "you get what you pay for". I can generally play on them immediately right out of the box. Very little adjustment is ever needed. I am a professional musician with BS degrees in music education and performance. I highly recommend these reeds to students and fellow musicians.
