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.

good quality, well-packaged reeds, good sound
These are the best reeds for me, but it all depends on your mouthpiece, style of playing, and so on.
As good as they ever are.
As recommended excellent response and intonation when used with Selmer Concept mouthpiece
Consistent reeds with a strong and focused sound.
Good and consistent quality reeds.
Lovely reeds, with a darker tone than the Rue Lepic 56 giving a more "classical" feel.
I was advised to upgrade to V12 reed which was good advice as it
seems to be the perfect reed for me.
Reeds recommended by staff in a previous visit to the store. Great advice as always
