Product Details

Vandoren 56 Rue Lepic Bb Clarinet Reeds

56 Rue Lepic is the address where Vandoren reeds were first produced and as such is widely regarded as the home of reed innovation. Designed from thicker cane, the 56 emits a rich, centered and extremely pure sound while providing maximum stability in all registers. Its quick response ensures precision in the most difficult passages without sacrificing the extraordinary round and warm sound.

Precision is extended to the new numbering system that offers a more specific range of strengths in each box for consistent performance. The 56 Rue Lepic comes in humidity balanced factory fresh packaging so all reeds play as though you toured the Paris factory and selected them by hand at 56 Rue Lepic.

Zonda copy....a good thing!

By Elise C from Orlando, FL on 8/23/2011 1:59:12 PM

These Vandorens are for people who like both V-12s and Zondas. By that, I mean that they basically blow like V-12s, but they tongue more easily because of the narrow heel, as on the Zonda reeds. The only issue I have with them is that the 4s are too soft for me, and the 5s are too hard. I have to buy 5s and sand them down. Your mileage may vary.
