Vandoren Clarinet Reeds

Vandoren Clarinet Reeds Traditional

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 stacatto executions of large intervals while maintaining a richness of tone that gives body and clarity to the sound, which is a hallmark of Vandoren reeds.

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 pallet with a slightly thicker tip than the Traditional. The longer pallet 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.

 

 

56 Rue Lepic Clarinet Reed

Named for the hone of Vandoren. The Rue Lepic is the newest addition to the Vandoren’s much-heralded line of clarinet reeds. Designed from thicker cane with a heel taper very similar to German-style reeds, the 56 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. The 56 Rue Lepic comes in Vandoren’s exclusive humidity balanced, factory – fresh packaging, so all reeds play as if you selected them at the factory in the South of France.
