This reed was born following extensive conversations and correspondence between Tom Alexander and the legendary late, great Jazz saxophone genius Michael Brecker.
The NY reeds were thoroughly field tested by subjecting it to many months of on the job playing in the concert and tour performances of several of our World Artists who gave it their seal of approval and use it as their primary reed today. The result is a new reed made with the same high grade French cane, yet a redesigned tip and profile which produces a big and bold sound, full response throughout the registers and the type of vibrant, solid tone traditionally associated with that of the New York music scene. The tip is somewhat harder than Superial DC which gives it a sustaining power, especially in the high end of the horn.
Most closely comparable to Vandoren V16 / La Voz / Rico Jazz Select/ Hemke for sax players and Vandoren classical for clarinetists.
Note: NY has somewhat more resistance than either Superial or DC and some players prefer to move down a half step in strength.
