D'Addario launches VENN reed

D'Addario launches VENN reed

This article was posted on 1 May 2022.

D’Addario has entered the synthetic reed market with the launch of the VENN reed, initially available in various strengths for B flat clarinet, alto sax and tenor sax. Marketed as ‘a new species of reed’, D’Addario says: 'VENN signals a whole new era in woodwinds innovation: combining the stability and longevity of a synthetic 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 organic reed elements to make up the reed blank. The result? VENN outlasts and outperforms anything else like it – all while sounding and playing like your favourite cane reed.'

Each reed costs around £30 and is available now from retailers across the UK and beyond.
