I have been playing professionally for over two decades now. I play an R-13 with a Larry Combs (LC1) mouthpiece, the Vandoren Optimum ligature, and V-12 (size 5) reeds. These reeds require very little fixing compared to other brands, and, with proper care and maintenance, they last for a considerable amount of time. They are easy to fix and, with the use of rush and sometimes my knife, they can be manipulated into lasting for one more great performance. My private students all play on V-12 reeds -- of varying strengths. A final note, if you are not paying less than $21/box, then you are getting ripped off! WWBW has very competitive prices as do other online companies; you may just need to look outside your local music shop.
The V-12s are worth every penny you spend on them! They are amazing reeds. I've been using these for years and have never had a complaint. They are consistent and reliable. They last a very long time, too. They don't take long to break in and, if necessary, you can play on a new one for a concert in an emergency. They tend to be a little stiffer than other brands, so I would buy a couple of sample reeds (if possible) to find the hardness you like! I play on these for general concert band music and solo work, however, for swing / big band music, I will use a lower strength. They have a beautiful tone that is dark and full. These reeds are a perfect for pairing with a Rovner ligature.
I was using these reeds for a long time, but after trying Gonzalez F.O.F. reeds, I made a permanent switch. These Vandoren reeds are far superior to all of the Rico reeds, but still lack a full sound when playing loudly. Also, only 2 or 3 reeds in a box play well. For me, the Gonzalez F.O.F. reeds are much more consistent and have a better value for the price.
Since most people wrote pros about this reeds, so maybe I should write my experience of these reeds. These reeds are good they sound very rich, round, dark, and has great control. BUT the thing is, it's very hard to find good ones most of the time. The reed box I purchased recently, only 3 of them were satisfactory, and rest were just for "practice" purpose. Also, I bought 3.5 reeds, but for me they worn out easily.. maybe last less than 9 days.. i tried size 4, and 4 1/2, they both are really thick, so maybe it ll be useful if you rub it properly with the sand paper. Hope my review helped.
This reed gives the quality of sound that I need for my band perfomances at an affordable price
