Bass Clarinet Reeds
Once a musician becomes comfortable with a certain brand or style of reed, they often stop searching for something new. But with so many options out there, you'd be doing your serious disservice as a bass clarinetist if you didn't browse for something better every once in a while. In this section you'll find some of the top rated, best-selling reeds available, made by some of the most popular brands like Rico, Legere, Rigotti, Vandoren and more. So take your time to look at everything in this section... you may just find something that enhances the way you play.
From cane to synthetic options, filed and unfiled and even unfinished cane models, the selection here covers almost everything you could ever want in a bass clarinet reed. Depending on your preference as a musician, your decision should get much easier once you've narrowed things down a bit. If you haven't tried all the different styles it may be worth picking up something new just to try it out. For example, if you're looking to move away from a traditionally crafted reed, try something like the Fibracell Synthetic Bass Clarinet Reed Strength 1. Offering a powerful projection in a lightweight design, it provides a quick response and stunning overtones. And because it has a synthetic construction, it lasts up to four times longer than a cane reed.
On the other hand, if nothing but a classic will do, then you can't go wrong with the Vandoren Traditional Bass Clarinet Reeds Strength 2. Extremely popular and revered for their outstanding response, these incredibly flexible cane reeds have a tonal richness that just can't be duplicated. Designed to suit all genres, you have to hear the clarity of sound provided by these reeds to believe it.
In the end, no matter what you decide on, you can take comfort knowing that these are some of the most sought-after bass clarinet reeds on the market. Whether you're going with a reliable classic or looking to expand your repertoire, you'll be more than impressed with what you find in this catalog.
