NOW IN-STOCKDecember 2014: At the Lincoln Center in Manhattan, Bernard Van Doren introduced to the music trades and clarinet players world-wide the first new Bb Clarinet reed from Vandoren in 15 years, the V21!
The V21 reed combines the conical shape of a 56 rue Lepic reed with a V12 profile. This unique combination makes all registers of the clarinet more accessible with warmth and a depth of sound. It will allow you to play with amazing presence and immediate response. V21 is the perfect reed for performances that require the ability to handle large interval leaps efficiently with an even and rich tone.

Best out-of-the-box reeds
Jul 7, 2016
80 - 90% of these play well straight out of the box. With very little work, they play the entire range of the instrument with minimal effort. The 56s play well at first but weaken after an hour or so of playing. The V12s are great, and hold their character for a long time, but seem to always need a lot of work to optimize them. These V21s are a great balance between the two others.
