Bass Saxophone Reeds

C5BASS

Alexander Bass Sax

Manufacturer: Alexander    Instrument: Bass Sax

Type: Reed    Model/Color: New York

Additional Information: After the introduction of Superial, "DC", and Classique in the 1990's, we began to conceive of a model which would add a new and different dimension to the tonal universe of our reeds. This reed was born following extensive conversations and correspondence between Tom Alexander and the legendary late, great Jazz saxophone genius Michael Brecker beginning some years ago. Without Michael's gracious and invaluable feedback following experimentation with different prototype designs, this new reed simply would not have come into existence. It was a singular honor to have been guided by this greatly missed, phenomenal musical spirit and exceptional human being. NY was also 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 our same high grade S. France 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. We welcome you to debut our new work, Alexander N Y.

S5BASS

Alexander Bass Sax

Manufacturer: Alexander    Instrument: Bass Sax

Type: Reed    Model/Color: The Original Superial Reed

Additional Information: This was in line with the tonal concept of the "American" style single cut reeds, but with more developed heart and rear vamp area, one with "spring" and natural resilience needed to produce a really big sound.

Alexander Bass Sax

Manufacturer: Alexander    Instrument: Bass Sax

Type: Reed    Model/Color: The Superial "Classique" Reed

Additional Information: Starting with the clarinet model, we tried to conceptualize what kind of reed we could create that would provide musicians with a wide palette of expression, and classically grounded performance characteristics...those that produce a warm, dynamically balanced, sonorously beautiful tone.

D5BASS

Alexander Bass Sax

Manufacturer: Alexander    Instrument: Bass Sax

Type: Reed    Model/Color: The Superial "DC" Double Cut Reed

Additional Information: This reed has a slightly harder tip and more wood in the heart and sides than Superial and therefore produces a more solid tonal core, enhanced projection and power, and a little darker harmonic timbre than Superial, but still one with the kind of "edge" and authority needed in soloing or lead work.
