Cordier Tenor Reed Trimmer

Cordier has been known for it's excellent reed trimmers for decades.  A reed trimmer will take material off the tip of the reed, thus making the reed feel harder.  This is especially good for a reed that is getting older, still  plays well, but feels soft.  Trimming the end will extend the usefullness of the reed.

Alexander Classique Reeds - Tenor - CLOSEOUT

From Alexander's Web Site:

In 1997, after the introduction of the "Superial" and "DC", we felt another line of reeds was needed to address the specific neeeds of classical woodwind player or jazz players wanting a bit more resistance and darkness in their set up than our other models offer.

Starting with the clarinet model, we tried to conceptualize what kind of reed we could create that would provide musicians wiht a wide palette of expression, and classically grounded performance characteristics . . . those that produce a warm, dynamically balanced, sonorously beautiful tone.

While investigatging what direction of design we should pursue, we knew that there had been a reed made years ago which classical clarinetists spoke of in almost reverential tones. Although this reed never became as commercially successful as some of the more "name" brands, it hjad been in fact used buy some of the top clarinetists in the world, among them some members of the Chicago Symphony clarinet section.  To the lament of many, production ceased some years back.  

We worked on a prototype which was influenced by this reeds's design, but with certain improvements that we felt would actually make it more suitable to present day musical settings.  This same philisophy was also followed for the saxophone models, but with a somewhat different profile design we felt would bering out the best in that instrument.  We also had the advantage of using more accurate hardness testing and cutting machines so we could manufacture a much more consistent reed than the original model.  

With testing feedback from some top professional classical clarinetists and saxophonists, we arrived at the final design of this new reed line christened "Classique".  We went into production for all models and Classique is now being used not only be classical and concert performers, but any others looking for a darker tone which this reed's harder tip and heart produce.    In Classique, we believe we have achieved our goal of capturing the essence of that great traditional design, but with improvements developed to enhance dynamic response, clarity and register balance, which we feel produces a "singing" tonal quality that is definitely classical in it's conception.  It should also be noted that a growing number of jazz players seem to enjoy Classique's response these days as well.

5 reeds per box.

Alexander Superial Reeds - Baritone - CLOSEOUT

In the early 1990's, after many months of intense development and testing of prototypes, the original "Alexander Superial" was put into production.

Tom Alexanders aim with this first model was to design a reed which produced a warm, resonant "buzz", good projection, even scale throughout the registers, and a wide dynamic range. In other words he wanted this reed to provide a tonal platform that was free blowing, capable of quick and accurate articulation, and one that gave immediate presence.

This was in line with the tonal concept of the "American" style single cut reeds, but with more developed heart and rear vamp area, one with "spring" and natural resilience needed to produce a really big sound.

He ran an extensive testing program with various professionals and we were also fortunate enough to have the valuable feedback from the renowned veteran mouthpiece maker Ralph Morgan, his excellent crew and others.

After all the testing confirmed the good results of the final prototype, Tom believed he had finally come up with a reed worthy of manufacture.

 

Only #3 and available in box of 5 and #3.5 in box of 10 at this time at a VERY SPECIAL PRICE!! (Closout item) 

Don't judge these reeds by the first time you play them.  I have found that they get better the more you play them.

I have found with these reeds, that you can't judge them by a first play.  You must continue to use them for a while as they get better with use.
