The Vandoren Jazz Reed Mix cards allow alto sax players to try one each of the jazz reeds by Vandoren.
This card includes one Java Green, one Java Red, one ZZ, and one V16 reed in the strength of your choice. These cards offer a convenient and affordable way to try out different types of reeds before committing to buying a whole box.
- Java Green: this is Vandoren’s brightest sounding jazz saxophone reed. It has great flexibility, bright sound and nice projection.
- Java Red: a thicker heart and a steeper slope from heart to rails. The Java Red is flexible but more stable with more body and edge than Java Greens. They also play a little harder than Java Green reeds.
- ZZ: a great all-round jazz reed. They offer the flexibility of Java Green but have the heart and tip of V16 reeds. Responsive and colorful, while not too bright and not too dark.
- V16: the thickest of the Vandoren jazz cuts. It is darker, broad, and adds more body to the attack. They play quite a bit harder than other Vandoren jazz cuts.
