Alexander NY Reeds for Eb Alto Sax
The Newest Reed Available from Superial - 5 Reeds per box
After the introduction of Superial, "DC", and Classique in the 1990's, Tom Alexander began to conceive of a model which would add a new and different dimension to the tonal universe of our reeds.
The Superial NY reed was born following extensive conversations between Tom Alexander and a legendary Jazz saxophonist friend some years ago, and through experimentation with different prototype designs. It has also been thoroughly field tested by subjecting it to many months of on the job playing in the concert and tour performances of several of our World Artists who've now given it their seal of approval.
The result is a new reed made with Superial's same high grade S. France cane, yet a redesigned tip and profile which produces a big and bold sound, full response throughout the registers and the type of vibrant, solid tone traditionally associated with that of the New York music scene. The tip is somewhat harder than DC which gives it a sustaining power, especiially in the high end of the horn.
