"Great Reeds"

These reeds were recommended to me by my clarinet teacher after discovering that Rico reeds, the reeds I have been using, were not very good in quality. Vandoren Reeds are great, I have already noticed improvements in my tone and articulation. I recommend getting These Vandoren Traditional reeds. As soon as I am ready, I think I will advance to the Vandoren V-12 Reeds.

"Great, durable reeds"

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.

Vandoren makes a great reed. The classic cut produces a vibrant lively sound. They are a nice dense cane, better than some of the porous varieties other brands are selling. It gives a richer, more resonant tone and a reed that lasts.

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!

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.

"Good reeds for an intermediate player"

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.

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 have been playing clarinet for 5+ years and marched for 3. I used these reeds throughout marching band and concert band and the sound quality is amazing. I have used these since I have played clarinet and when I have auditions these reeds make me sound my best. There no squeaking whatsoever since I have played with them. They are definitely a great quality for a low price!

Being an intermediate clarinet player and desperate to advance from my Rico reeds, vandoren B flat clarinet reeds have a beautiful rich tone I would reccomend these reeds to beginner and intermediate players alike.

I have an old Selmer. What size reeds should I order? Do you have a suggestion about a different brand?
[+] Click to See Answer
I am trying to find suitable reeds that work well with a Van Doren B-45 clarinet mouthpiece. I have used #3 reeds in the past but have been using #2's for about 6 yrs. I've been told they are too soft as they prevent air passing through my mouthpiece as many times I get no response when playing middle C, D, & E. Do you have any suggestions?
