Signed of a ZZ which means jazz! This reed produces an exceptional resonance and shine of the timbre, qualities particularly appreciated by jazz musicians.
A hybrid reed for jazzmen.
The ZZ reed combines the rounded tip of the V16 and the flexible palette of Java to achieve extraordinary color and richness of sound. Appeared in 2002, this reed meets the needs of jazz musicians, and guarantees an ease of emission that preserves the resonance and brilliance of the timbre, two essential elements for the practice of this musical style.
An artisanal and eco-responsible process.
From planting reeds to flow-pack packaging that protects reeds from moisture changes, Vandoren controls all stages of production of its famous reed tabs. Cut by hand, the canes are worn on the back of a man on the edge of a reed bed. They are then leafed, sun-dried, dried, sawn, arrowed, tabled, bevelled, ... No less than fifteen distinct production stages that produce a considerable volume of reed waste that is reused as a fertilizer for reed beds or as fuel for heating factory. Music at the service of ecology!
