Vandoren V12 Bass Clarinet Reeds
V•12 clarinet 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. 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.
Strengths: 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5.
Supplied in boxes of 5.
