Does anyone know what might be a good equivalent synthetic reed substitute for a tenor sax Vandoren Java Red?
I don’t know how close it matches Java Red, but Legere has an American Cut that I think is supposed to slant towards brightness/free blowing. I have a couple and they’re good.
Funny you bring this up. I’m currently working on a project for the forum, building a spreadsheet to make it easier to compare reed strengths.
Thanks daviderato! I’ll look forward to seeing what you come up with.
