My daughter is in a 5th grade Band class and her first year of playing the clarinet. She has used these reeds all school year. I purchased two boxes of ten this school year and she will not have used all of them by the last day of school. Although we don't have anything to compare them to, she likes these reeds and they seem to last her a long time. She did have one reed that was chipped out of the package.

VanDoren reeds are taken from the wrong part of the cane shaft. I've used these reeds before, and pieces literally fell off of the reed while I was playing. I was disgusted at the quality, and was really unhappy that I spent $ for a reed that lasted less than a week.

This is the brand my daughter's band teacher wants them to use. We have used them for two years and have only purchased three boxes. This is a great price for a wonderful product.

    My son is the first chair Clarinetist in the school band. He started with Rico, then switched to Vandoren reeds. He said they last longer, and sound better. I'm very happy that he enjoys it.

        Comments about Vandoren Traditional Bb Clarinet Reeds:

        I have been playing the Clarinet for over six years, and fell in love with the Vandoren's since the very beginning. I have tried my hand at Mitchel Lurie's and grew to love the Vandoren's even more. They last a long time and produce a beautiful sound in the horn.

        you'll definately notice the difference between a Vandoren and (ex. Rico) . Vandoren's last longer and has a great specialty in dynamics. i reccomend to any and every clarinet player !

        using them for years

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Vandoren Traditional Bb Clarinet Reeds:

        Like most band students, I grew up on Rico reeds. But we went through them like crackers! After school, I discovered Vandoren and have not looked back. I gave one to a student and she used it at school. Her band teacher made her go back to Rico because her music stood out so much! I have been using them for over 25 years!

        Comments about Vandoren Traditional Bb Clarinet Reeds:

        Very smooth, balanced, high quality and durable reeds. These work very well with dramatic bends and scoops!For first-time Vandoren buyers: Vandoren reeds seem thicker than regular (ex. Rico) reeds by 1/2. So a 3 1/2 would feel like 4. Beware!

              My son has been playing the clarinet for 5 years, and several years ago we found Vandoren reeds, and he will not use anything else. According to him, he gets a better tone/sound with these reeds. He recently moved up to 3-1/2, so I ordered these about a month ago. Like everything we have bought from Musician's Friend, they arrived promptly and were well packaged.

                I am most impressed with the customer service, very reliable. The first package wasn't arrived on time. I called in and reported the incident. The gentleman told me to wait one or two days and if still not recieved call in again. I called in as the package hadn't still been recieved. The lady at Customer Service created a overnight delivery, which arrived on time. Even though the original package wasn't received on time and it took longer to get the merchandise than expected, the issue was resolved smoothly.

                          Compared to our local music store, MusiciansFriend had a greater value and was much more convenient to order from online! I have already recommended it to my friends!

                          I will definately keep ordering from this site.
                          I have searched many sites for the things I have purchased and for the money Musician's Friend is by far the cheapest and with good quality.
