Alexander Saxophone Reeds

Alexander Saxophone Reeds
Alexander Reeds have devoted years of research and professional testing to pursue their dream of creating woodwind reeds which offer the highest standards of performance and endurance possible. They have used the fine tradition of reed manufacturers from the past in conjunction with the huge technological advancements of today: adding an element of precision unavailable years ago. Since the early 1990's, when Superial, "DC" and Classique were born, Alexander reeds have now become internationally recognized as being in a class of their own, and are played everywhere by musicians of all levels, styles and types. In 2007, after years of prototype testing, the Alexander N Y was finally born. Much of its creation and design, and pre-production feed-back is attributed to the late saxophone legend Michael Brecker. Other admirers of the NY are the Alexander "World Artists" who have Joe Lovano and Branford Marsalis among their number. The NY is designed for power and flexibility throughout the registers, still made from Alexander's high grade French cane, but with a redesigned tip and profile for a big, bold sound, a full response, and the type of vibrant, solid tone traditionally associated with that of the New York music scene. The harder tip - NY is the strongest and hardest of the Alexander reeds - gives it a sustaining power, especially in the high end of the horn. Reed Comparisons: For helpful comparison, the NY Alexander reed is most similar to the Vandoren V16 / La Voz / Rico Jazz Select/ Hemke in terms of strength/grade.
