Launched in 1993 to meet the demand of some American jazz musicians (a JAVA with even more wood). The V16 has a thicker tip than the traditional Vandoren reeds and a longer range.
Sound: more brilliant, more percussive, especially well suited for all new styles of music.
The V16 reeds have a medium thick heart (thicker than the JAVA reeds but less than the Traditionals), with a profile that produces a strong attack and a deep, full sound.
Available thicknesses : 2 - 2.5 - 3 - 3.5 - 4
