Vandoren announces V16 reeds for baritone sax!

The longtime reed (and mouthpiece) manufacturer, Vandoren, has just announced that they have started producing V16 reeds for baritone saxophone.

Full disclosure, in addition to being the curator of JazzBariSax.com I (Andrew Hadro) am also a product specialist for Vandoren. I’ve had a chance to try out the V16 reeds for a while now and I think they are going to be very popular. Here’s what I recently wrote about them:

V16 reeds are mainstays among alto, tenor and soprano saxophonists and now the V16 reeds have arrived for baritone. Players can expect the same powerful tone with an exceptional edge especially in the lower register that will really appeal to baritone saxophonists. Whether its supporting a big band, playing in a funk section, or being a soloist, these reeds will give you the sound you need to be heard.

Attention Saxophonists between ages 18-23!

Vandoren’s Emerging Artist competition has just announced that their online application portal is now open:

“The Vandoren Emerging Artist Competition is open to any highly proficient saxophonist or clarinetist in Jazz or Classical between the age of 18 and 23.”
