Produced from cane selected for it’s specific proportiions, 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.
#3 and #3.5 available. Other strengths can be ordered.
