Launched in 1993 to answer the demand of some American jazz musicians (a JAVA with even more wood). The V16 has a thicker tip than the traditional Vandoren reeds and a longer palette.
Sound: more brilliant, more percussive, particularly well adapted to all the new styles of music.
V16 reeds have a medium-thick heart (more than JAVA but less than Traditionals), with a profile designed for producing a strong attack with a deep, rich sound.
To all intents and purposes, the same as Javas but with one important difference- they are thicker. These reeds are designed to respond well when played hard and loud. Whereas most reeds will become uncooperative if pushed too much, these are specifically cut to avoid these issues. An ideal choice for anyone playing over a heavily amplified or just likes to put a lot of air through their horn without it ‘stalling’. Jim@sax.co.uk
