Very high quality and durable to normal level playing

Comments about Vandoren V12 Series Bass Clarinet Reeds:

I used one of these specifically for David Maslanka's 4th symphony and it survived the ordeal. The sound quality I gained using these over other reeds is drastic. Highly recommend these for a bass clarinet player

Comments about Vandoren V12 Series Bass Clarinet Reeds:

V12 bass clarinet reeds seem to be not as bright as regular Vandorens. They appear to have more resistance and power and better response without distorting. I have played bass clarinet professionally 30+ years and like regular Vandoren. I hope the V12s are even better.

Unbeatable

Comments about Vandoren V12 Series Bass Clarinet Reeds:

I use these with my B50 in size 2.5. It's too difficult to find words that describe how fantastic they are when you get the best one in the box.

    Comments about Vandoren V12 Series Bass Clarinet Reeds:

    I have always been a V12 user. For me, the V12 has a much more substantial sound than the Traditional or V21. I like a darker, fuller tone and these give them to me. Since they do play a little bit harder, I would recommend testing a half strength lighter than usual, then work your way up.

      Comments about Vandoren V12 Series Bass Clarinet Reeds:

      It's an automatic choice after a few boxes of these. Thicker blank works well on a refaced Selmer mpc with 3 1/2. Favorite reed for now due to consistency (half are perfect) and clear tone. There are still a few warm fuzzies per box but most are good and last a long time.
