Flavoreeds are made from quality cane, grown in the South of France; the same region from where Vandoren cane is harvested. They are made by a well known French manufacturer.
The ingredients used in flavoreeds are natural sugar-free food additives, like those found in baked goods in any supermarket.
Students generally find that unflavoured reeds have an unpleasant taste. Because flavoreeds taste good, students report higher motivation to practice.
The flavour is imbued into the pores of the reeds, so it lasts practically as long as the reed lasts. When the flavour runs out, it's time to use a new reed!
Flavoured reeds are not a gimmick, they are genuine playing reeds for musicians at all levels.
