Made in the heart of Van in southern France, the Vandoren name has been trusted by the world's best saxophone and clarinet players since 1905. By blending state-of-the-art technology with traditional, handmade craftsmanship, Vandoren allows their cane to age and dry over a two year span before they choose only the finest for shaping, grading, and earning the seal of approval. The result is a reed that is renowned for its flexibility and phenomenal projection.
Throughout Vandoren's catalog, you'll find reeds for everything from tenor saxophones to bass clarinets, and even slick accessories like sax reed trimmers, reed cases and more. Among Vandoren's best sellers is the SR242 baritone saxophone reed. Designed to produce an amazingly pure sound thanks to a very thin reed tip that's balanced by a solid vertebral column, this reed is one of the most popular models in the world, and makes an optimal choice for both novice musicians and professionals alike. For clarinets, you can't go wrong with the Vandoren 56 Rue Lepic Bb clarinet reed. Made specifically for the demanding performer, it's constructed from thicker cane to emit a rich, bold and incredible pure sound while offering ultimate stability in all registers.
Not all reeds are made equally. For this reason, you need to ensure that the reed you're purchasing is cut by dedicated artisans who know exactly what it takes to make your performance glimmer and shine. With Vandoren, you can be sure that every reed is made with love and pride in knowing that your sax and clarinet skills will be fully realized.
