The Vandoren Traditional Baritone Saxophone Reed is one of the most widely played reeds in the world, thanks to its all-round performance that suits all styles of music.
Known for its excellent response in all registers, the Traditional Reed lets you create a pianissimo attack on even the highest notes.
It’s also extremely flexible, allowing the legato or staccato execution of large intervals while maintaining a richness of tone.
You’ll be able to enjoy a real body and clarity of sound in your baritone saxophone with this top quality Vandoren Reed.
The favourite reed of classic saxophonists worldwide since Marcel MULE, it has always been (and is still) used with equal success by many players.
Two Legendary Examples:
1) Lee KONITZ:
I’m using a Vandoren two reed*. I had been using a plastic medium reed for the past 5 or 6 years but just recently switched to the cane. Right now, I’m using a soft setup which gives me the flexibility I can’t get in a harder setup.
– Saxophone Journal, Spring 1985
*For alto; for the soprano sax, Lee Konitz uses a Vandoren #3 reed (both with V5 mouthpieces).
2) Stan GETZ:
I don’t like a reedy sound. I have to work hard to get my sound because I use a harder reed (med-hard Vandoren)*. People think I play effortlessly.
