Vandoren V12 Bass Clarinet Reeds



Produced from cane selected for it’s specific proportions, the V12 reeds have a thicker heel and are cut on a longer pallet with a slightly thicker tip than the Traditional.  The longer pallet means that more of the reed is vibrating, resulting a deeper, richer sound.  The thicker tip gives body to the attack and also increases the longevity of the reed.
