Venn from D’Addario Woodwinds combines the stability, longevity and durability of a synthetic reed with the sound and feel of natural cane. To mimic the organic structure of cane, D’Addario reverse-engineered cane itself, layering different strengths of polymer fibers with resin and organic reed elements to make up the reed blank. Venn lasts up to 20 times longer than a cane reed and is resistant to splitting, chipping and breaking. It requires no prep, and consistency is identical from reed to reed. Venn is available for B-flat clarinet and alto and tenor saxophone in core strengths.
