OVERVIEW

A clarinet reed designed for the advanced player.

V12 reeds have a thicker tip and longer pallet that results in a deeper, richer sound with body to the attack. This cut is a favorite among clarinetists world-wide. It is designed for the advanced clarinetist, and recommended for long-facing mouthpieces such as the 5RVLyre and B45. It is known for its precise attack, homogenous timbre in every register, controllability in the high register, and overall warm and velvety sound.

I have played on the regular Vandoren reeds (3) for many years, and I always had a lot of trouble breaking the reeds in. I heard that the V12 reeds were outstanding for a lot of people, and I bought a package of them to see what they were like. Never in my entire life have I had an entire box of reeds be great reeds! I've seen 3 or 4 at the most be decent out of regular Vandoren reeds. I heard that these were a thicker cut of reed, and I bought the 2 1/2s. The tone of these reeds is astounding; the regular vandorens have a horribly bright sound compared to the V12s. The V12s have a beautiful dark tone, and they play very easily. I recommend these reeds to any clarinet player; professional or student. They are a little expensive, but for what they bring with them, they are really at a fantastic 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.

Comments about Vandoren V12 Bb Clarinet Reeds:

As a current music major, I honestly would not use any other reeds. They are very consistent and it's rare that I get a reed that does not work. They are pretty versatile for different mouthpieces as well.

Comments about Vandoren V12 Bb Clarinet Reeds:

I have noticed a difference in the blue box and this one. I believe that the v12 box is much better than the blue one, the blue box is still good but not as consistent, and much more consistent with good reeds! I would recommend these reeds to anyone!

I am always on the look out and ready to try different brands but I find myself returning to 'Old Reliable'. They are consistent, reliable, easy to work on and fit most mouthpieces.

Reliable Reeds

By 

from Grand Junction, CO

Comments about Vandoren V12 Bb Clarinet Reeds:

The V12 reeds always seem to have quality reeds that are easy to break in and are good throughout their playing life. I regularly stock up on the V12's, but I also buy the Rico Reserve Classics every so often. I must say that, for the majority of the time, the V12's tend to play longer, sound better, and have more workable reeds in the box than the Reserves tend to. I highly recommend these reeds to any serious clarinetist.

Comments about Vandoren V12 Bb Clarinet Reeds:

I am a parent who have not really used a wood wind instrument but there is only one name that is familiar; Vandoren Reeds. My 2 siblings will never let me buy a different brand for their clarinet and saxophone. As they have said Vandoren reeds are extremely flexible, which allows you to execute even at large intervals with richness of tone and extreme clarity. Vandoren is indeed the hallmark of reeds.
