Traditional

The most widely played reeds in the world with a superiority proven over the years, these reeds suit all styles of music. Traditionals are known for their excellent response in all registers, allowing a pianissimo attack in even the highest notes. They are also extremely flexible, allowing the legato or staccato execution of large intervals while maintaining a richness of tone that gives body and clarity to the sound, which is a hallmark of Vandoren reeds.

56 rue Lepic

Named for the home of Vandoren, the 56 rue Lepic is the newest addition to Vandoren’s much-heralded line of clarinet reeds.

Designed from thicker cane with a heel taper very similar to German-style reeds, the 56 emits a rich, centered, and extremely pure sound while providing maximum stability and quick response in all registers. Strength gradations are smaller and more specific, resulting in reeds that are very consistent.

White Master

The White Master are designed for German clarinet players. They are available in two versions:

• Traditional version

• New version: an evolution of the White Master reed, designed to suit more specifically the characteristics of the new generation of German mouthpieces (open mouthpieces with long facing).

Black Master

The Black Master reeds have a wider and thicker cut than the White Master reeds. They are available in two different models:

• The Black Master reed

Its cut is designed for Austrian mouthpieces. Thanks to its response and tone characteristics, this cut can also suit the Boehm system mouthpieces.

• The Black Master Traditional reed

This cut, in the tradition of the Viennese school, is designed for very closed Austrian mouthpieces, with a long facing.

V•12

V•12 reeds are manufactured from cane tubes with the same diameter as cane used for alto saxophone reeds. As a result, they have a thicker heel and are cut on a longer palette with a slightly thicker tip than the Traditional. The longer palette means that more of the reed is vibrating, resulting in a deeper, richer sound. The thicker tip gives body to the attack and also increases the longevity of the reed.

The introduction of the 3½+ strength allows a smaller and more specific gradation, resulting in reeds that are more consistent within the same strength.

The V•12 has expanded to include the Eb and Bass clarinet reeds, which offer a warm, rich and powerful sound.
