FILED VS UNFILED
A reed that goes through one additional cutting process that removes bark from the reed’s shoulders. This allows for faster vibration. This style of reed tends to pair well with darker mouthpieces such as Otto Links, Meyers, Vandoren V16's, or Jody Jazz HR*s.
A reed is unfiled when bark from the reed’s shoulders remains intact. Many players enjoy the added resistance of this additional material. This style of reed tends to pair well with brighter mouthpieces such as Jody Jazz DVs or Jets, Theo Wanne Durgas, or Vandoren Jumbo Javas.
