Developed in 1983 for jazz and popular music. A thicker tip and a more flexible palette* than the Traditional reed allow vibration over a larger surface area with maximum elasticity.
This type of vertebral column gives the musician much greater playing flexibility, as the resultant elasticity zone is very large.
*Palette: zone where the waves are propagated with the greatest range. From the tip, the waves are absorbed further in the JAVA reed.
In order to guarantee the excellence of the Vandoren brand and to enable musicians to have confidence that they are playing a genuine Vandoren product, we have devised a system of authentication.
Each reed and reed box contains an identification code. Musicians and retailers can confirm the authenticity of their Vandoren reeds and reed boxes at any time. Each reed and reed box can easily be verified at here.
