Designed from thicker cane with a heel taper very similar to German-style reeds, 56 Rue Lepic reeds emit 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.The thinner heart and thicker tip suits mouthpieces with an American style facing curve and will give quite an immediate and present tone.

Due to these design features including the thicker tip and thicker spine these 56 reeds tend to suit mouthpieces with an 'American' style facing. So Vandoren M series, M13,M15, M30 - plus the new CL range of mouthpieces from Vandoren and the BD5. Also many smaller American brands like Morgan, Portnoy, Bhen etc and the new Reserve Mouthpieces from D Addario.

  • Individually wrapped to protect from temperature and humidity changes.
  • Supplied in boxes of 10.
  • American style cut; thicker tip and thinner heart than Traditionals or V12.
  • Suits American style facing curve mouthpieces.
  • French made quality reeds.

The 56 Rue Lepic works well for me with the Black Diamond mouthpiece and I get a reasonable number of playable reeds out of a box.

Love these reeds. I’ve tried a lot of different types but these are my fave and you seem to get more good ones in the box so although they are more expensive they are worth the money

more reliable than most reeds out the box, enable good dynamic range.

I ordered clarinet & saxophone reeds plus a mouthpiece hygiene spray which arrived very quickly.

However ...the spray had leaked over the reed box, so I’m hindsight, perhaps the top could have been tightened and the spray bottle put in a plastic bag before going in the Jiffy post envelope.

I have tried various reeds over the years and find these produce the liquid should I want. The reeds are responsive too.

They have a very beautiful and consistent sound. My son finds them easier to blow than V12. Hopfully they will do a perfect job in the higher altitudes. I say this because my son participates in MusicAlp Festival which is in the French Alpes and last year he had to file his V12 reeds to make a good sound, so hopefully these ones will do the job perfectly!
