Vandoren Java Alto Sax Reeds
The Vandoren Java Alto Sax Reeds were developed in 1983 for jazz and popular music. A thicker tip and a more flexible palette than the Traditional reed allow vibration over a larger surface area with maximum elasticity.
This type of vertebral column gives the musician much greater playing flexibility, as the resultant elasticity zone is very large. JAVA reeds are more flexible than Traditionals and V16s and vibrate on a long palette, creating a bright sound with immediate response.
The Vandoren JAVA family has gotten bigger! Also take a look at the “JAVA Red” models! The Red models feature a filed jazz cut and and overall design that produces a richer tonal core than the Vandoren JAVA Alto Green Box while still maintaining the quicker articulation and response of the Green box!
Vandoren reeds are made in Bormes les Mimosas (Var), France in their facility closest to the Vandoren cane fields. French cane, French design, French sound.
