I have found that most of the reeds in the box can be used. They are much more reliable than the blue box Vandorens in holding the tone. I can usually use about 7 from the box (versus 5 from the blue box). I've tried many brands of reeds, but keep coming back to Vandorens, and to the V12. I find they are great for a couple of days, and break them in for a gig. If I'm lucky, I'll get a second gig out of a reed, but often they are my practice reeds after that.

These reeds are amazing for about 30 minutes and then are very poor quality. They become soggy and I live in Florida which is humid and it molds within a day even with a special case for humid places.

        Vandoren V-12 Reeds

        About Me Experienced

        Pros

        • The Vandorens Are Ok

        Cons

        • Very Inconsistent

        Best Uses

          Comments about Vandoren V12 Bb Clarinet Reeds:

          I studied seriously when I was in high school and college. I had to quit clarinet for my graduate work and starting my professional life. Vandoren makes an OK product; but just as I remember, their reeds are inconsistent. Before buying Vandorens, be sure to buy a reed knife and some fine sandpaper. The V-12s seemed a bit better than the blue box. But I've opened three, and at least one really should have been rated a 3 rather than a 3 1/2, which was the strength box that I purchased.

                My son's clarinet tutor told him about these, they have improved his sound greatly. He has a competition coming up and I think the reed will help in his performance.

                      These reeds have always provided me with the best sound and full tone I can possible get from these reeds. their individual packaging has helped keep the pre-use warping lower then usual, and 99.9% of the time, all of the reeds are in perfect, unmatched quality.
