Vandoren Java Bari Sax Reeds - Box of 5

Developed in 1983 for jazz and popular music, the JAVA reed incorporates a thicker tip and a more flexible palette than the Traditional reed which allows the reed to vibrate 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. The palette is the zone where the air waves are propagated with the greatest range. From the tip, the waves are absorbed further in the JAVA reed.
