V•12 reeds for Bb clarinet 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.
THIS PRICE IS PER REED
The thicker tip gives body to the attack and also increases the longevity of the reed.
The introduction of the # 31⁄2+ strength allows a smaller and more specific gradation, resulting in reeds that are more consistent within the same strength.
Strengths available : 2,5 - 3 - 3,5 - 3,5+ - 4 - 4,5 - 5 - 5+
