The new Gonzalez Local 627 Jazz Reeds are more flexible and vibrant than the Gonzalez Alto Regular Cut. The reeds are finished with a larger area of scraping. which gives a brilliant sound and quick response.

Ideal alternative for people currently using Jazz Select unfiled or Vandoren V16, ZZ or even Java green box. A better price, more consistent and a comparable reed. Works best on American style facing curves like Link, Meyer, Wanne, Navarro, Aizen etc.

Strength is fairly hard so equivalent to Vandoren blue box classics. If you're using a ZZ 2.5 then a Gonzalez 2.5 should be ok depending on mouthpiece facing etc. Perhaps go for a slightly softer strength than Java green box if that's what you are used to. Ie Java 3 equals Gonzalez Jazz 2.5


Sono le mie ance preferite!

Very good and consistent reeds.

Only tried one so far; lovely to play, if slightly "breathy" sound.

I always use Gonzalez reeds, very high quality

Good jazz reeds Cheaper than european or American

Good quality from Argentina!

I've been using Gonzales 2½ standard and classic reeds for many years on alto and tenor and I've always rated them as excellent for their consistency. It's rare to get a bad one. So I thought I'd try the Jazz Local 627s to see what they're like and bought a box of 2½ for tenor. I was surprised to find that this reed plays quite a bit softer than the other Gonzales reeds and I wasn't happy with them out of the box. So I clipped half a mm off one which brought it right into my strength area and made it a different reed altogether. I've clipped them all now and tried them all. The clipped reeds are very consistent and very free blowing and punchy and give a rich tone on my vintage tenor which I like a lot. It's a very different tone from the standard or classic Gonzalez reeds, harder and more edgy. The dilema now is whether to go for 3s next box or stick to 2½s and clip them - the latter I think.

Uniformity of strenght in 1 box - very good. Very Jazzy feel and sound = subjective feeling of coarse.

great reeds

Very good reeds
