I'm basically relearning the clarinet after over 50 years. I've gotten in over 1000 hours (I keep a spread sheet on this) since I restarted myself & I'm close to or better than I was in high school. I've tried many reeds over that 1000 hours & this is the first time I've tried the Vandoren V12. I selected strength 4 & use it with the Vandoren M15 profile 88 mouthpiece. Even though the reeds come in humidity controlled packaging they are on the dry side & do need to be soaked well during the break in process. Once broken in they play very well, all 10 of them.

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.

Comments about Vandoren V12 Bb Clarinet Reeds:

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.

Best Reeds I have Ever Used

By Brandon-5a64s

from Undisclosed

Comments about Vandoren V12 Bb Clarinet Reeds:

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.

      Comments about Vandoren V12 Bb Clarinet Reeds:

      I love these reeds - I don't use anything else! Stores in my area have stoppped carrying them. I hate that! These are the best quality sound possible.

      Quality has diminished

      By clarinet_diva04

      from Wilmington, DE

      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.

      Wonderful Reeds

      By Sparklypink711

      from Iowa

      Comments about Vandoren V12 Bb Clarinet Reeds:

      These reeds are the best I've come across. They really do marvelous things for your tone. However, I am disatisfied with the amount of 'good' reeds per box. In a box of ten of these reeds, usually only 2-5 sound good (for me anyways) I just wish I could get more for my money.

        Comments about Vandoren V12 Bb Clarinet Reeds:

        I have found that most of the reeds in the box can be used. They are much more reliable than the blue box Vandorens in holding the tone. I can usually use about 7 from the box (versus 5 from the blue box). I've tried many brands of reeds, but keep coming back to Vandorens, and to the V12. I find they are great for a couple of days, and break them in for a gig. If I'm lucky, I'll get a second gig out of a reed, but often they are my practice reeds after that.
