Vandoren Traditional Clarinet Reeds

The most widely played reeds in the world with a superiority proven over the years, these reeds suit all styles of music. Traditionals are known for their excellent response in all registers, allowing a pianissimo attack in even the highest notes. They are also extremely flexible, allowing the legato or staccato execution of large intervals while maintaining a richness of tone that gives body and clarity to the sound, which is a hallmark of Vandoren reeds.

Bb clarinet V12 reeds are manufactured from cane tubes with the same diameter as cane used for alto saxophone reeds. As a result, they have a thicker heel and are cut on a longer palette with a slightly thicker tip than the Traditional. The longer palette means that more of the reed is vibrating, resulting in a deeper, richer sound. The thicker tip gives body to the attack and also increases the longevity of the reed. The introduction of the 3½+ strength allows a smaller and more specific gradation, resulting in reeds that are more consistent within the same strength. The V12 has expanded to include the Eb and Bass clarinet reeds, which offer a warm, rich and powerful sound.

Designed from thicker cane with a heel taper very similar to German-style reeds, the 56 rue Lepic emits a rich, centered, and extremely pure sound while providing maximum stability and quick response in all registers. Strength gradations are smaller and more specific, resulting in reeds that are very consistent.
