The Vandoren Traditional Reeds For Alto Saxophone
are the most widely played reed in the world, with a superiority unmatched over many years. These reeds have a strength of 1.5.
This reed is designed to produce a quality of extremely pure sound due to a very thin reed tip (the area of reed with maximum vibration), balanced by a solid vertebral column (more cane in the area which climbs gradually to the heel).
Traditionals feature the thinnest tip with the thickest heart, resulting in crisp articulation with a full, dark sound. They are known for their excellent response in all registers, allowing a pianissimo attack in even the highest notes.
