D'addario Venn Synthetic Alto Sax Reed
D'Addario VENN: an advanced synthetic reed constructed of polymer fibers, resin, and natural cane elements. Designed to give players the benefits of synthetic reeds without compromising on the sound and play-ability of cane reeds.
Here's what D'Addario say:
"VENN signals a whole new era in woodwinds innovation: combining the stability and longevity of a synthetic reed with the sound and feel of natural cane. To mimic the organic structure of cane, we reverse-engineered cane itself, layering different strengths of polymer fibers with resin and organic reed elements to make up the reed blank. The result? VENN outlasts and outperforms anything else like it – all while sounding and playing like your favorite cane reed."
