Each card contains 4 reeds - one V12, one 56 rue Lepic, and one V21 reed in the chosen size, plus one bonus V21 reed a half-strength higher. This is an excellent tool to introduce advancing players to different options and experiment with their sound with a minimum risk.
V12 reeds are manufactured from cane tubes with the same diameter as can 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 reeds. The longer palette means that more of the reed is vibrating, resulting in a deeper, richer sound. The thicker tip gives body to the attack and also increases the longevity of the reed.åÊ
The V21 reed combines the conical shape of a 56 rue Lepic reed with a V12 profile. This unique combination makes the 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. The V21 is the perfect reed for performances that require the ability to handle large interval leaps efficiently with an even and rich tone.
Designed from thicker cane with a heel taper very similar to German-style reeds the 56 rue Lepic emits a rich, centered, extremely pure sound while providing maximum stability and response in all registers, Strength gradations are smaller and specific, resulting in reeds that are very consistent.
