Vandoren V12 Bb Clarinet ReedsVandoren V12 Bb Clarinet Reeds
Vandoren Says:
V.12 Reeds are manufactured from cane tubes of the same diameter as those used for saxophone reeds. This leads to a much higher manufacturing cost as large diameter cane is more rare.

V12 Reeds are thicker at each end: thickness at the Tip .10mm (0.124") Thickness at the heel 3.15mm (0.124") hence the name V12.

The V12 is available in Strengths 2.5 to 5+ (2.5. 3, 3.5, 3.5+, 4, 4.5, 5, 5+)

In comparing strengths, a V12 no4 is almost equal to a traditional strength 3.5.

The tone of the V.12 is generally bigger and more consistent than that of the Traditional reed.
