This reed is designed to produce a quality of extremely pure sound due to a very thin reed tip (the area of reed with maximum vibration), balanced by a solid vertebral column (more cane in the area which climbs gradually to the heel).
Traditionals feature the thinnest tip with the thickest heart, resulting in crisp articulation with a full, dark sound.
About “Flow Pack”:
Every reed is sealed in ‘Flow Pack’ to ensure factory freshness. ‘Flow Pack’ airtight packaging now enables reeds to be kept for as long as possible in the same perfect condition as when they come out of the atelier. This factory fresh concept is a major advance for musicians.
Now each reed reaches the final customer in a state of remarkable freshness. “I wanted to free musicians from any material and secondary constraints, any hindrance to their own creativity and freedom of expression” – Bernard Van Doren (MD, Vandoren)
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.
Musicians and retailers can confirm the authenticity of their Vandoren reeds and reed boxes at any time. Each reed and reed box contains an identification code that can easily be verified at: www.vandoren.fr/fightagainstfake
