Francois Louis Classique Reeds - Alto

The “Classique” reed for alto sax was developed through the experience of Francois Louis as a saxophonist combined with the advice of many classical musicians, who have tried prototypes and confirmed his selections in the creation of this reed.

These play about one half strength harder than the "Excellence" reed and is similar in strenght to a Vandoren Traditional (Blue Box). (Alto "Classique" #3 plays more like #3.5 "Excellence".) Everyone that has purchased these has commented that NEARLY EVERY REED played out of the box!  I use them myselft and love them! That makes your price per reed lower than other brands which usually have only 2 or 3 reeds playing well out of the box. These are the best playing reeds I have come across in the last 10 or 15 years!

The Classique Reeds are available for alto saxophone and for clarinet, in strengths from 2 - 5. Check the reed strength chart to see how they compare to your current reed.

French File Cut.  Price per box of 10.

Francois Louis Classique Reeds - Bb Clarinet

Francois couldn't leave the classical players behind and also developed a “Classique” reed for alto sax players and clarinet players. His experience as a saxophonist combined with the advice of many classical musicians, who have tried prototypes and confirmed his selections, helped breed this reed. Francois did not master the clarinet enough to achieve such a journey alone.

The constructive collaboration with the excellent Belgian clarinet player Fabrice Alleman was extremely precious. It is his patience and “live tests” that allowed Francois to confirm every microscopic modification of the cut on the sound produced and the ease of playing, thanks to Fabrice, Francois was able to create a reed in perfect balance with the “philosophy” of all his work.
