Wow!
Wayne Beatty, 03.02.2020
Got these to try and wow! They are good. The difference in response and how they opened up the sound of my metal mouthpieces was incredible... Only thing is... They feel a little bit stiffer than others. I would maybe drop down a half strength if trying them for the first time. Good product!

Personally I found these reeds to be far too soft. Played on a 7 tip opening, there is just far too little resistance to create anything other than loud honking noises, however this is probably due to the combination of reed and mouthpiece. For players who choose a much open mouthpiece, like a 9 or 10 tip opening, this would probably be an ideal reed choice, as I found the same reeds half a strength up a perfect choice for jazz playing.

Ihan hyvä reedi alttosaksofonille. Tämän pitäisi olla ihan hyvä standardireedi, ja itse olen näitä käyttänytkin jo pitkään. Ei ole ollut ongelmia. Soundi on huomattavasti parempi kuin saksofonini alkuperäisessä reedissä. Monet käyttävät näitä joten näitä kannattaa ainakin kokeilla.

Ein tolles Blatt!
MicaSax, 01.05.2018
Das Vandoren Java Filed Red ist mittlerweile zu meinem Lieblingsblatt geworden. Ich spiele erst seit einem knappen Jahr und kann es auch für den Einsteiger nur empfehlen. Die Ansprache in allen Lagen ist einfach hervorragend. Ich bevorzuge eigentlich einen etwas dunkleren Sound, den ich mit dem Vandoren ZZ erreichen konnte. Dafür kann ich mit dem Java Filed Red völlig ermüdungsfrei üben. Ich spiele damit länger und mit mehr Spaß.
