I had been playing my clarinet with Rico Royal reeds for about 5 years when my clarinet teacher suggested I buy some Vandoren reeds. It was well worth the investment. While not all of the reeds that come in the box are good, most of them are not only usable but have a great tone and amazing durability. I am not an expert on clarinet reeds, but they are the best I have used in my experience so far.
Id been playing Ricos and Mittchel lurrie reeds for a long time and was just not satisfied with the tone.
Vandoren was what my friends were using. Just a day befoore the production opening day I had all my reeds stolen and got one from a friend. It was no doubt one of the best reeds I have ever used. I went and bought a box the next day, never will go back.
I tried several brands of reeds for my Bb clarinet (as well as G clarinet, which uses a Bb mouthpiece), and it must be said Vandoren reeds are the best Ive tried so far, also considering their price.
I've been playing clarinet for 6 years and I decided to try Vandorens in 8th grade. Now, don't get me wrong; I love Vandorens, but I'm glad I waited that long. Vandorens are probably not a good idea for at least your first two years. I use Vandoren 3s. It seems a good fit. Keep in mind that Vandorens are harder sizes than Ricos (which most people start on). I would use a Rico 3 1/2, so I use a Vandoren 3.
Wow! I'm a student, but I listen to others with different reeds play. I always use these. The others squeak in the high reg esters, but my notes always come out perfectly. I recommend these to anyone who plays clairnet, but doesn't need to play perfectly.
There's an old saying, "Don't change something unless it's broke." The other reeds I used to use made my tone sound broke and as if I couldn't reach my potential. When I was advised to try Vandoren, they were my "fix." I've played Bb clarinet for 8 years and for the last 4 years these are the only reeds I've used. They present great quality and Woodwind Brasswind tops this with a great price. You won't be disappointed with these reeds!
These reeds are often heavy on the tip on the left side. (This is a tendency of Vandoren's I don't like.) It's a good step up from Rico regular reeds and Mitchell Lurie reeds. I recommend these for high school students. I don't like the consistency of the amount of "bad reeds" in a box though. If you're will to try something else, I'd recommend a step up to V12 reeds.
There are no other affordable reeds on a student budget that compare to the quality that Vandoren reeds give me. They're very durable and I can play a wide arrange of music, from jazz to concert music, form inside the classroom playing a wilting melody to belting out on the field for marching band, I trust these reeds and no other. And eventually when I get a professional clarinet, I will continue to stay with Vandoren reeds and products.
I have been using these reeds for 3 years and just recently switched to Vandoren V12's. These are still great reeds and can produce a very nice sound but I have found them to be inconsistent. There are usually only a few reeds in each box that really plays nicely. Still a great reed for the money though!
Vandoren no doubt knows what they're doing when it comes to clarinets. These reeds are wonderful. However, it's obvious the claim behind their new "packaging" is just a reason to raise prices. There's really no way their claim of stability is valid... But still great reeds...
