THE universal reed :
This reed is designed to produce a quality of extremely pure sound due to:
a very thin reed tip (the area of reed with maximum vibration),
being balanced by a solid vertebral column (more cane in the area which climbs

delineate the limit of the area of bark.
Suitable for all saxophones and in a large choice of strengths:

I don't like a reedy sound. I have to work hard to get my sound because I use a
harder reed (med-hard Vandoren)*. People think I play effortlessly.
