Make your own grape juice
Playing this reed is like taking a happy little grape and sucking the juice out of it. Poor little blighter… But he had to be sacrificed for your taste buds. The tart and grapey flavour of this flavoured reed is the spirit-lifting, grape juice hit of your morning practice session. Yum!

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.

|Almost too hard to blow but if you can handle it, gives a lovely clear tone and stability in the high notes. For the advanced player. Also good for ‘chops of steel’ competitions amongst your friends.|
|For strong lips that regularly pump 30 reps of 10 kilograms on an off night at the gym. For the advancing player doing a lot of playing.|
|These are getting harder to blow through and suited for those who wish to achieve good tone.|
|For the beginner to intermediate player or for lasting through longer jam sessions.|
|Soft and easy to blow through. Suitable beginners as it is easier to produce a sound, also equally suited for the mild mannered and softly spoken.|
