      Traditional reeds

      Comments about Vandoren Traditional Bass Clarinet Reeds:

      I have been playing my bass clarinet as a primary instrument for 7 years now. This type of reed is the "go to" reed because it is the most widley known brand but that doesn't mean they are the best! Yes they are fairly okay but now in days Vandoren Traditional Reeds lack consistency, I am lucky if I get 1 or 2 working reeds out of a box of 5. I have tried many types of different reeds and I am still looking for the best. I recommend for Vandoren lovers to try the V12 Vandoren reeds they won't let you down, they are more consistent and they are made of better material! If you want to try something other than Vandoren my personal favorite is Rico Reserve. I love the rich tones that the cane material gives when playing both Rico Reserves and V12.

      Comments about Vandoren Traditional Bass Clarinet Reeds:

      I love my vandoren reeds. I am playing constantly and i can honestly say that they last a decent amount of time. They take a couple times to break them down one a strength 3 but i love using them for solos and such because the sound quality is great. Ive tried various other brands amd nothing compares to the sound of a vandoren! (I also use vandoren reeds for tenor sax and Bb clarinet)

      Comments about Vandoren Traditional Bass Clarinet Reeds:

      I got 3 of 5 reeds to work right out of the box without working on them. I believe Vandoren has the most stable reeds you can buy. In other words, they're consistent in quality. This particular kind could use a little refining that's why I prefer the V12 reeds overall.

      Not That Great

      Comments about Vandoren Traditional Bass Clarinet Reeds:

      I'm not sure what everyone else is seeing here. I tried these reeds the first day I got them, and they were fine. Then, after a few days, they were working HORRIBLY. They are very inconsistent. If you look at the reed in the light, the heart looks like a 'V'. I can't see what is so special about these reeds.

      Great

      Comments about Vandoren Traditional Bass Clarinet Reeds:

      I have been using these reeds since I began playing in middle school. I use them for all of my instruments (primary bass clarinet, clarinet, and tenor saxophone) and I could not be happier with the quality and tone of these reeds. I have bought different brands before, but none compared. I have a rich, dark tone, and I have great flexibility on my instrument. My friend had been using Rico's and didn't sound her best, but when I lent her a Vandoren, her tone improved considerably. They seem to hold up and not become soft too quickly, and though they are a bit more expensive than some other brands, they are worth it. I recommend these reeds often to friends and classmates.

      Comments about Vandoren Traditional Bass Clarinet Reeds:

      This brand of reeds is by far the best I've ever played on. They produce a deep, warm sound. These reeds play when you need them in any range.

      Better than the Best!

      Comments about Vandoren Traditional Bass Clarinet Reeds:

      I've been playing the clarinet for six years and I'm currently in hgh school. For a secondary instrument I chose the Bass Clarinet. I love the deep, rich sound this instrument gets along with its overall ease of playing. Initially, when I started playing the Bass Clarinet I started on Rico Reeds. My sound wasn't what it could have been. As a result, when my private instructor suggested Vandoren Bass Clarinet reeds, I didn't hesitate since I play Vandoren V12's on my B-Flat Clarinet. These Vandoren Bass Clarinet reeds increased the sound quality and the output of the sound I could get from the instrument. Therefore, I recommend these reeds to anyone who really wants to sound good on the Bass Clarinet!
