  3. Re: What's the difference between the Vandoren Java and V16?

    Haha different strokes for different folks!



    Did the V16 sound lack "pizzazz" to you? But I know the best solution to this problem is try them out myself since I've learned first hand that a...
  4. Re: What's the difference between the Vandoren Java and V16?

    I was not aware WWBW had such a great policy about this! I will try both out once I return from England.



    I currently play on a Phil-Tone Meyer 6M but the intonation and tone is very...
  5. Re: What's the difference between the Vandoren Java and V16?

    I did some searching and this thread discussed the same topic. http://forum.saxontheweb.net/archive/index.php/t-38485.html
    Saxland confuses me by describing the V16 as "really punchy and produces...
  6. What's the difference between the Vandoren Java and V16?

    Yesterday I tried out the V16 A6 small chamber and I loved it so much more than my Meyer 6M, but they didn't have the Java ones in store. I will be completely satisfied with the V16, but I was...

    Re: JodyJazz Classic?

    My experience with the JodyJazz Classic was not as good. The mouthpiece was not loud or powerful at all. The spoiler only made it "tinnier".
  8. Re: Question for jazzers playing cane reeds - reed adjustments

    I rub the backs against white computer paper and use the ATG method. Not quite sure if the white paper actually works, though.

    Re: Intonation on Mark VI

    I've done that before but my teacher has taught me to keep the same embouchure for every note.

    The problem with the intonation may have been my reeds. I'll test more to see what happens.

    Intonation on Mark VI

    I find that on my Mark VI alto, if I tune to the G (concert Bb) then the notes like middle Eb and D are about 20 cents sharp. The notes above the G from high A to high F are also around 20 cents...
  12. Re: Vandoren rolls out a radical new vamp design for their filed Java Reds!

    I noticed the same exact thing too with the Java Reds. But it plays fine after balancing it out so no big complaints from me.

    Re: Finally tried a modern synthetic reed

    I haven't tried the Studio Cut but the Signature is supposedly an improvement.
    Intonation and vibrato seem slightly better on the Legere than the Fibracell.

    Re: Finally tried a modern synthetic reed

    UntoHim, I experienced the same buzziness from the fibracell for my alto. I sort of like it, sort of don't. So I tried the Signature Legere and it also feels a bit muffled. But I think that's because...

    Re: Jody Jazz Mouthpiece for Band

    Have you considered getting your Meyer refaced? I bought a Phil-tone refaced Meyer which I plan to use for lead alto next year.
    But if you're set on a Jody Jazz, they have a good return policy. I...

    Re: Best reed for Meyer Hard Rubber

    Are you talking about the greens being brighter and more edgy?
    From the one and only green java reed I tried, it was a fuller sound than the 7 or 8 red javas I tried. This was on a Phil-tone refaced...

    The switch from Neotech to the Cebulla for alto was not much of a dramatic change for me. But I will see how it feels during band season!
