Francois Louis Classique Reeds – Alto (Most consistent reed on the market!)



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.
