D'Addario VENN is advanced synthetic tenor saxophone reed constructed of polymer fibres, resin, and natural cane elements. Designed to give players the benefits of synthetic reeds without compromising on the sound and playability of cane reeds.
Developed by the industry’s most revered engineers, VENN signals a whole new era in woodwinds innovation: combining the stability and longevity of a synthetic tenor sax reed with the sound and feel of natural cane. To mimic the organic structure of cane, we reverse-engineered cane itself, layering different strengths of polymer fibres with resin and natural reed elements to make up the reed blank
Unique combination of polymer fibres give VENN natural flexibility, for response and articulation similar to a cane reed. Combined with resin making VENN resistant to adverse elements and stresses that quickly break down natural cane reeds. Natural cane particles allow VENN to mimic cane, giving a warmer and richer sound.
