       As fellow clarinettists, here at Dawkes we understand how important it is to find the right set-up.

Musicians often end up purchasing box after box of reeds that not only are the wrong strength, but also of the wrong style for their mouthpiece. These unsuccessful attempts result in wasting both time and money, along with causing unnecessary frustration for the player.

To combat these issues, we have designed a variety of reed selection packs, specifically tailored to suit your particular mouthpiece. For a modest price, you have the opportunity to try a selected assortment of reeds…and hopefully find your optimum set-up!

There will always be a good player who contradicts our advice, but our pairing of reeds and mouthpieces is done on a design basis.

The French Cut Reed Selection Packs include reeds with thin tips and thick hearts.

The French Cut Reed Selection Packs are suitable for the following:

  • Buffet plastic mouthpiece.
  • Selmer 120 mouthpiece.
  • Weinberg M1, M3 and D3 mouthpieces.
  • Rico Reserve 118 mouthpieces.
  • Vandoren 5RV, 5RV Lyre, B45, B45 Lyre, B40, B40 Lyre, CL5, BD5, M30 and M30 Lyre mouthpieces.

French Cut Reed Selection Packs include the following*:

SOFT: Vandoren Traditional in 2, Vandoren V12 in 2.5, Gonzalez Classic in 2 and ISHIMORI Wood Stone in 2.5.

MEDIUM: Vandoren Traditional in 2.5, Vandoren V12 in 3, Gonzalez Classic in 2.5 and ISHIMORI Wood Stone in 3.

HARD: Vandoren Traditional in 3, Vandoren V12 in 3.5, Gonzalez Classic in 3 and ISHIMORI Wood Stone in 3.5.

* PLEASE NOTE Contents may vary depending on stock levels, we are unable to swap reeds after delivery.

Please use the chart below to select the suitable reed pack strength, by looking for the reeds you are currently using.

If your current mouthpiece and/or reed choice doesn’t fit within these parameters, please call us on 01628 630800 so we can create a custom made pack for you.     


I love the opportunity to try different reeds without having to buy a box full of each.

Excellent selection of reeds sent

After extremely helpful advice from Emily I ordered a selection pack and yes it saved me from some expensive mistakes. Not often shops put in place systems to save the buyer money. It makes one more confident and more likely to use them again.

So pleased to be offered the service of trying out a number of different rates before bulk buying. A marvellous service

A mixed selection of reeds is the best idea ever. It saves a very expensive mistake of having to buy full boxes just to find out you don't get on with them. The range of cute and strengths is great. Very pleased.
