                  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 found the security of a reed that I can count on. My confidence has moved up with the predictability of the Vandoren reed. I am sold.

                        A Plus for consistency

                        By William Patterson

                        from Phoenix, AZ

                        Comments about Vandoren 56 Rue Lepic Bb Clarinet 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.
