VK1 the New Synthetic Reed by Vandoren

The new VK reed is made of a composite material specially developed by Vandoren, the result of 7 years of research.

This fiber composite material does not imitate the structure of the reed. It reproduces the essential physical characteristics allowing the same acoustic behavior to be obtained.

Completely New

The Vandoren VK reed is truly innovative, both in terms of the material it is made of and the method of obtaining the material. It is the subject of an international patent.

The Vandoren VK reed, as well as its material, are produced in France in Bormes les Mimosas.

These reeds are 100% recyclable

6 Strengths Available

The available strengths of Vandoren VK reeds are six: 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, and 60. The VK strengths correspond to subdivisions by three of the usual half-forces.

VK reed strengths correspond to sixths of traditional reed strength.

The VK reed is currently only available in a traditional cut for Clarinet, under the reference VK1.
