Vandoren Variations

Vandoren reeds are the most widely played reeds in the world with a superiority proven over the years, these reeds suit all styles of music. But with the addition of so many different cuts and styles, it can be difficult choosing which is right for you.

 

Traditional Clarinet Reeds

 

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.

V.12 Clarinet Reeds

V•12 reeds for Bb clarinet 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.

56 Rue Lepic 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.

V21 Clarinet Reeds (New!)

Vandoren’s newest clarinet creation, the V21 reed combines the conical shape of a 56 rue lepic reed with a V.12 profile. This unique combination makes all registers of the clarinet more accessible with warmth and a depth of sound. It will allow you to play with amazing presence and immediate response. V21 is the perfect reed for performances that require the ability to handle large interval leaps efficiently with an even and rich tone.
