      I studied seriously when I was in high school and college. I had to quit clarinet for my graduate work and starting my professional life. Vandoren makes an OK product; but just as I remember, their reeds are inconsistent. Before buying Vandorens, be sure to buy a reed knife and some fine sandpaper. The V-12s seemed a bit better than the blue box. But I've opened three, and at least one really should have been rated a 3 rather than a 3 1/2, which was the strength box that I purchased.

      These reeds are amazing for about 30 minutes and then are very poor quality. They become soggy and I live in Florida which is humid and it molds within a day even with a special case for humid places.

                My son's clarinet tutor told him about these, they have improved his sound greatly. He has a competition coming up and I think the reed will help in his performance.

                      These reeds have always provided me with the best sound and full tone I can possible get from these reeds. their individual packaging has helped keep the pre-use warping lower then usual, and 99.9% of the time, all of the reeds are in perfect, unmatched quality.

                      Quality has diminished

                      Comments about Vandoren V12 Bb Clarinet Reeds:

                      The price has increased to go with the new individual packaging of each reed, which has diminished the life and quality of the reeds. It is also more difficult to find a good reed in the box. It's not worth the price.

                      These are the best reeds I've come across. I love the quality of them. They are much more expensive in stores, it's totally worth it to buy them here.
