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.
The Vandoren reeds are good for intermediate players. In the 6th grade we had started on the basic Rico reed size 2.5. The strength on the basic Rico reed wasnt very steady, much like the way the basic Vandoren. I didnt really like the way that it was inconsistant with the sound. In the seventh grade we switched from a strength of 3 to 3.5 in Vandoren, but it was still very inconsistant. Then in the 8th and 9th grade we began playing on Rico Reserves and Rico Grand Concert Evolution reeds. I really like their consistancy alot better. It is well worth the money to play on the more expensive Rico reeds. Even in Marching Band you can hear difference in the more expensive Ricos and the Vandorens. Listen to us play in concert or in marching band. The quality of the sound is so much better with the Ricos!!!
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.
When I was in 7th grade, I decided to join band and the first kind of reeds I used with my Bb Clarinet was Rico's reed that were a 3. I hated the sound of the Rico reeds and it just didn't suit me very well. Vandoren reeds are really good reeds and I will never go back to any others. I am a freshmen in highschool. I am currently in Symphonic Winds, Wind Choir, and Marching Band. So as you can see, I need a dependable reed for every day of the week and also the weekends. These reeds are very good even though there are some bad reeds in each box, the good reeds are better than the other reeds you would get in a Rico box.
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.
So i wrote a review awhile ago saying how much i love them but my opinion changed. I found out that after about a week of playing they become CRAP (at least the size 3). So I have to change like once or twice a week and these things aren't cheap
These are excellent reeds! After leaving the beginner level, everyone should switch to these. Be warned though; these reeds are tougher than most. I went from Rico to Vandoren and if you raise the Rico number by almost 1 you get the strength of a Vandoren. I use these reeds all the time now. They are excellent reeds that last me quite a while, considering I don't practice as much as I should. I recommend these to all players over a beginning level, only because they are quite an investment if one is not fully dedicated to clarinet
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.
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!
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.
