These new Yamaha synthetic Alto Saxophone reeds are labelled as the ASR series. A brand new design and addition to the reed market, Yamaha are seeking to give beginners and advancing players a durable and consistent reed option. The aim is to let players concentrate on their development without having to struggle with the differences found in natural cane reeds.
These Alto Sax reeds emphasise easy playability and a high quality tone production. They have been tested for a full 320 hours of playing time without displaying any changes in stiffness or shape. Based on 50 mins practice per day these reeds could last up to 1 year!
Developed internally the Yamaha team tested a wide variety of cane and synthetic reeds on the market to better understand how they could develop a new solution. Some of the new and unique features of this Yamaha synthetic Alto Sax reed include:
- Material: A new formulation based on fibrous material. Similar tone to natural reeds
- Texture: Simulated reed texture, designed to look and feel very close to a natural cane reed
- Shape: Original 'cut' with a central rib and lighter sides. Designed for easy projection and immediate flexibility
- Heat Treatment: These reeds are given a heat treatment during the production process. This ensures the shape stays true for many months and it helps develop a full, rich tone
- Engraved: Each reed is laser-engraved with its strength
