Overview

Vandoren's ZZ reeds feature a unique relationship between the heart of the reed, where the tone is produced, and the thickness of the tip, which is responsible for vibration. The result is a reed with extraordinary tone, with immediate response in a free-blowing manner - even in the altissimo range. Professional saxophonists like L.A. recording artist Gary Foster, Delmark recording artist Frank Catalano, and many others have switched to the ZZ reed for their performances and recordings.

These are the most amazing reeds I have ever played on. They are so easy to break in and they produce an amazing sound and tone. It takes such little air to produce a sound and they last a long time. This is definitely my favorite reed.

I've been playing for 30+ years mostly jazz alto with a meyer 5 MP setup.I've tried every reed under the sun.My reed of choise has been green java 3s and la voz medium through the years.I thought I'd give ZZ 3s a try.I went through half the box and every one was stuffy and unplayable to my ear.I like a singing full bodied tone and just did'nt get it with these reeds.Oh well this happens some times.

These reeds blew my mind away!!!!

By Emmanuel Famin

from Argentina

Comments about Vandoren ZZ Alto Saxophone Reeds:

These reeds are the best i've ever played, great sound, amazing projection, round tone, and all these with a reed that is really easy to play!! I used to play vandoren traditional 3 with my metal Selmer mouthpiece, now I can't use anything but ZZs 3 and a half. I fell in love with sound of my saxophone all over again... I can't stop playing my horn!!!

Excellent Reeds

By Adam

from Chicagoland

Comments about Vandoren ZZ Alto Saxophone Reeds:

I love these reeds. They're some of the best I've ever played on. If you add the double cut (that line you'll find on standard blue box reeds) you'll find that it has the best sound for classical reeds. The standard ZZ is also great for Jazz. They sound at least as good as Java's and last much longer.

Outstanding reed!

By Tom Pederson

from Fort Collins, CO

Comments about Vandoren ZZ Alto Saxophone Reeds:

I tried the ZZ reeds about a year ago and have been playing nothing else since. They play well right out of the box, require very little break in time and hold up better than the Java reeds. Even though they are classified a "jazz" reed, I use them for concert work as well and I am very satisfied with the response. I have all of my saxophone students play them. I highly recommend this reed!

THE ONLY REED I PLAY AND THE ONLY REED I WILL CONTINUE TO PL

By I < 3 SELMER Altos and Yamaha Sops

from Indiana

Comments about Vandoren ZZ Alto Saxophone Reeds:

These are by far the best reeds I've ever played. Even out of the Vandoren line of reeds. These are the only reeds that give me the response as well as sound that I want. Can be used from jazz all the way to concert. With the flow pack designed, every single reed comes out of the box/vac pack ready to play. I with the highest regards recommend these reeds to anyone and everyone.

highly recomended

By DiTomasso

from PA

Comments about Vandoren ZZ Alto Saxophone Reeds:

I have been told over and over again to get these reeds. When I finally did, I felt like the burden of working for notes was lightened hugely. These reeds don't just look cool and have an attractive box, they really play wonderfully. Some reeds let you play notes. ZZ's let you play music.

Very Good Reed

By Jimmy

from Mars Hill

Comments about Vandoren ZZ Alto Saxophone Reeds:

These ZZ reeds are some of the best I have ever played on. With my Selmer E mouthpiece and my Rovner leather ligature, I can play any genre without changing my set up. The only reeds I like better are my home made reeds I hand carve. These are simply amazing. They are great for the Selmer Reference 54 Model 72 sax.
