The Grand Concert Select family of reeds features more material in the heart for a pure, warm and transparent tone quality, stable and consistent from pianissimo to fortissimo, in all registers. The revolutionary cut provides unrivaled flexibility for precise articulation and interval changes.

Grand Concert Select offers unparalleled reed-to-reed consistency with unprecedented longevity. Thick Blank reeds have a longer vamp than the GCS Evolution for easier response. These are more suited to mouthpieces with a medium to long facing lay, otherwise they will feel hard and stuffy on a short lay due to the long vamp.

  • Supplied in box of 10 reeds.
  • Thick blank for a rich sound.
  • Longer vamp allows more flexibility in the reed and thus an easier response.
  • Optimal manufacturing process ensures high levels of consistency.


Nothing wrong with the reeds, but they seem stuffy and dull on my B40 mouthpiece. They work better on my Yamaha 4C but still not as bright as Vandoren V21s

These are clarinet reeds, and I play the clarinet with them! They are suited to my mouthpiece and playing style. A premium product, consistent quality, and to my mind preferable to the more prestigious van Doren V12 reeds, which are of a fairly similar type.
