Mix and Match ANY 3 Vandoren Reeds to get the best price!
Launched in 1993 to answer the demand of American Jazz musicians (a JAVA with even more wood).
Thicker tip than the tradition Vandoren reeds and a longer pallet Sound: more brilliant, more percussive, particularly well adapted to all the new styles of music.
Nelson Hill gave me a Vandoren V-16! He said, Try it, you'll like it. I tried it. I like it! Eureka! At last, a sensible reed! They feel good and the percentage of usable reeds is incredible. Somebody is paying attention and I sleep a little better knowing that! The base is thicker giving my old, stretched ligature a better grip and the intonation, always a Vandoren tradition, remains true and spot on!
