The Vandoren V12 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. This is well suited to mouthpieces with a longer lay, 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.

However, if used on a mouthpiece with a short lay it can therefore have an unclear sound.

  • French made reeds, supplied in pack of 10.
  • Individually wrapped to protect from temperature and humidity changes.
  • Thick heel with a thicker tip than the Traditionals.
  • The long palette cut suits longer facing mouthpieces.
  • Cut from the same diameter tube as Alto Sax reeds.

I was advised to upgrade to V12 reed which was good advice as it
seems to be the perfect reed for me.

Excellent blah blah blah there is no more

Always a bit of variety in how reeds play. Of the three I have played so far, one is excellent, one good and one really difficult to achieve a non muffled sound.
