    Comments about Vandoren JAVA Red Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

    I like these because they play well right out of the box and last a little longer. I'm not sure, but suspect they are a tad thicker than others of the same strength.

      Reeds are very free blowing right out of the box with a great sound with lots of overtones. They do have a tendency of loosing strength pretty quickly.

          I love these reeds. Just switched from riggoti 2.5 hard 3 strong, to these and they are great. Very consistent, Uniformly filed, and the grains are for the most part very even.

          Good Investment

          By 

          from PA

          Comments about Vandoren JAVA Red Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

          I am a professional musician and rarely ever take the time to write a review about a product (so listen up). I have had great success with these reeds, using a Mark VI Tenor + Jody Jazz mouthpiece. I go through a lengthy process with reeds on a monthly basis, always trying out new products and adding new reeds to my rotation. My process includes using several types of reeds, but not looking at the back to see what specifically it is until after my final decisions are made regarding which reeds are worthy. After 4 months the Java Reds are taking up 8 out of the 10 spots in my rotation of gig reeds (I try at least 2 different boxes a month and also order a 3rd box of reeds that I know will work for me). I find these reeds to last long and retain their individual playing characteristics. I highly recommend giving a box of these a try, you may find out for yourself that they work their way into your reed box for gigs too.

          Best for me

          By 

          from Atlanta GA

          Comments about Vandoren JAVA Red Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

          Reeds are the most difficult component of musician's set up to find them satisfactory. I was very surprised when tried first box of Java Red on my Link 7 and Selmer MarkVII tenor. I even more surprised after ordering another two boxes. 1. Java Red combine nice reach and warm tone with flexibility in bottom register. 2. Consistently 3-4 reeds in box of 5 work well for me. So far I switched from Rico jazz select to the new brand. I hope they will stay good.

          This reed gives a great sound right out of the package before breaking it in. Well worth the money.
