    Comments about Vandoren 56 Rue Lepic Bb Clarinet Reeds:

    I use these when I cannot get V12's to work well. They are more consistent than the V12. However, they run on the soft side. For example, if you play a 4 1/2 on a V12 order a 5 on these. The sound of them is close to a V12, but they generally die quicker. V12's can last seemingly forever sometimes. Like all reeds, open the box, play them all, put them away, repeat until the cane sets. If one feels great straight out of the box you can be assured that you will have to clip it later, or place it higher on the lay of the mouthpiece. The big downfall of these is that they do not come in half sizes, only 3, 4 etc.

                      These reeds are a great improvement for the more experienced clarinet player. A good balance of performance versus price. Musician's Friend's service is top notch. I got my order in perfect condition and it arrived before the promise date. I had to order online since my local supplier ran out and Musician's Friend came through for me!

                            I bought these reeds for my daughter for day-to-day practice on her clarinet. The clarinet came with a set of three regular (traditional) Vandoren reeds. She could barely make a sound with those. With 56 Rue Lepic she makes good quality sounds, and they last longer. Very good reeds!

                            I have not been able to find another brand of reeds to compare to the consistency of this reed.
                            This brand of Vandoren reed is so consistent that you very seldom need to do much work on the reed at all. Open the package and every read I have tried responds, good grain and excellent hearts.
                            Tone is mellow, and deep and rich in sound a very good reed for orchestral and concert band performing.
                            A little more expensive but vey worth the money because you are not throwing away 50% or more of a mormal box because of flaws. Every reed int the box witll respond.
