Good jazz reed for when you need a bit of power
Tom9313, 26.04.2016
I use these with a Vandoren V16 mouthpiece on my tenor for when I'm playing with those pesky loud guitarists and drummers and need to be able to cut through the sound at jams!

The sound is full and with a nice solid mid-range, can be gritty when you want it to be but smooth otherwise.

Quality and consistency is on a par with other higher end reeds, bad ones are rare (maybe one in twenty) and generally I'm happy to pick one out of the box and use it immediately.

Experiment! your mouthpiece and technique will determine whether these reeds work for you, I've used them happily for years though.

Good jazz reeds
saxsim, 19.03.2019
Gets a great buzzy response on a metal link for jazz, found them quite inconsistent in the box though, the strength ranged from about a 2 to a 3, so need to get a decent amount of them, but the good ones are very good!

Unas cañas para pop rock
Carlos579, 05.07.2012
Las he usado con gusto pero encuentro más adecuadas para el jazz sus hermanas las vandoren de color verde. Además acostumbrado a comprar las vandoren clasiscas del 3 y usar las rojas del 2,5 me ha resultado una caña muy blanda que en seguida perdía sus propiedasdes iniciales.
