OVERVIEW

From the home of reed making comes the pinnacle of clarinet sound.

56 Rue Lepic is the address where Vandoren reeds were first produced and as such is widely regarded as the home of reed innovation. Designed from thicker cane, the 56 emits a rich, centered and extremely pure sound while providing maximum stability in all registers. Its quick response ensures precision in the most difficult passages without sacrificing the extraordinary round and warm sound.

Precision is extended to the new numbering system that offers a more specific range of strengths in each box for consistent performance. The 56 Rue Lepic comes in humidity balanced factory fresh packaging so all reeds play as though you toured the Paris factory and selected them by hand at 56 Rue Lepic.

I thought these were great at first because so many out of the box worked for me, but after breaking them in the sound is not as consistent as with v12s. If you need reeds on the spot to get the job done, go for these, but if you want reliability stick with v12s.

First, the 56RL seems about 1/2 strength softer than V12. (The reed chart indicates only slight difference.) So "order up". While this is a bright and responsive reed with pure intonation, I find it is not as warm and full as others I generally use. A little thin-sounding on highest notes. Not what I want for most of what I play, but at times may be useful (think: Overture to Candide, for instance). The playability and consistency of reeds in the box are quite good.

#$ Rue Lepic OK but not excellent

By 

from Berkeley Cal.

Verified Buyer

Comments about Vandoren 56 Rue Lepic Bb Clarinet Reeds:

#4 Rue Lepic reeds per box have 3 or 4 good ones. #4 is strength needed of high notes. I have had one chipped reed sealed in foil per box that was chipped in the last two boxes.

Simply the best reeds

Comments about Vandoren 56 Rue Lepic Bb Clarinet Reeds:

The extra thickness of these reeds brings out a more beautiful, resonant tone from your horn. I always choose these, and recommend these to all of my friends, beginner-advanced.

Great!

Comments about Vandoren 56 Rue Lepic Bb Clarinet Reeds:

We must know that every reed fits each player differently. I was suggested to try these reeds by my private teacher and I am greatly impressed with the sound I got out of it! Very centered, the use of the thicker cane is great and helps all around. Though these reeds may not work for you, you should at least give them a try at least once in your life!

LOVE this reed!

By

Comments about Vandoren 56 Rue Lepic Bb Clarinet Reeds:

I absolutely love this reed. It improved my tone a great deal when I began using them. And I also have found less "bad" reeds within a box than I do with other kinds and brands of reeds. They are usually pretty easy to break in, and last a decent amount of time compared to other reeds I have used. I would definitely recomment this to any player.
