Product Information

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.

As reliable as reeds ever are . . .

The longer lay is said to make them more suitable for the Selmer Concept mouthpiece but so far I have found this strength a bit less free blowing that the V12 - 3.

It\'s early days. The first reed was brilliant. The second good but less so. I\'ll have to see how I get on with subsequent reeds.

These are the best reeds for me, but it all depends on your mouthpiece, style of playing, and so on.
