  • Supplied in boxes of 5

Useful Information:  One of the many things to consider when looking into purchasing a saxophone reed is which brand to go for. Most musicians have their own individual preference and there are many brands to choose from though the difference between each brand is actually not a great deal. Vandoren reeds are well known for their quality and dependability - many musicians claim that Vandoren is the brand they always come back to after sampling various other brands to find their personal favourite.

There are a few things to look out for when purchasing a reed to predict which reeds will play best. Below are traits to look out for which may indicate a bad reed:

  • Ensure that the grain is not discoloured
  • Ensure that both sides are of the same thickness (check from the blunt end and not the tip)
  • Ensure that the grain on the cut side of the reed is smooth enough and not rougher than normal
Saxophone reeds play at best when they are wet - you could either soak the reed in your mouth before playing your sax or other players prefer to dip them into a small container of water and allow the reeds to soak before they begin playing. Lastly, remember that a good quality reed will not play to its best potential unless it fits well to its mouthpiece.
