Engineered for rock and other popular music, the V-16 reed has a thicker tip, a thinner heel and a long flex zone. It will give you a louder, more percussive sound. Box of 10.
Nelson Hill gave me a Vandoren V16! He said, Try it, you'll like it. I tried it. I like it! Eureka! At last, a sensible reed! They feel good and the percentage of usable reeds is incredible. Somebody is paying attention and I sleep a little better knowing that! The base is thicker giving my old, stretched ligature a better grip and the intonation, always a Vandoren tradition, remains true and spot on! - Saxophone Journal, May/June 1995
