A revolutionary reed delivering depth, richness and body.

The Vandoren V12 Alto Saxophone Reeds are designed for saxophonists seeking a deeper, warmer tone with a robust attack. Vandoren, the reed experts for over a century, developed the V12 reed to provide sax players greater tonal possibilities through precise control. The V12 reed features a thicker tip and longer pallet than standard reeds, resulting in unparalleled depth and richness from the first note.

Stage Pickup System Gives You Unprecendented Tonal Control
The V12 reed was created in collaboration with Fishman, pioneers in pickup design, to give you more tonal choices than ever before. Intuitive volume, EQ and body blend controls put you in complete command of your sound. Dial in the amount of mid-range scoop with the EQ knob for an open, punchy tone or a neutral, present tone. The body blend knob controls the level of body sensor signal, yielding a dynamically rich, robust tone or a crisp, cutting tone. Powered by a 9V battery, explore a world of tones with the V12.

Resonance Enhanced by a Fully Chambered Mahogany Body
The V12 reed enhances the natural resonance of your alto saxophone. Its solid, fully chambered mahogany body, 1.5" thick with tapered edges, produces vibrant tone with depth and projection. Three stylish soundholes improve vibration and airflow, allowing your tone to blossom. The V12's ergonomic cutaway design also provides comfortable access beyond the 10th fret so you can solo with ease.

Fusion Neck Offers a Familiar Feel for Steel-String Players
The V12 reed features a Fusion Neck with a 48mm nut width and 16" fingerboard radius, slightly thinner than traditional alto saxophones for enhanced comfort. The neck's profile will feel familiar to steel-string players, allowing for an easy transition to the alto sax. The V12 reed's form factor also appeals to students and those with smaller hands seeking an introduction to the alto saxophone.

Recycled Nylon Gig Bag: Perfectly Portable
The V12 reed includes a recycled nylon gig bag for safe, sustainable transport. Padded handles make it comfortable to carry, while a durable shell protects your alto sax from the elements. Spacious zippered compartments store accessories like cables, straps, sheet music and pedals. Made from repurposed materials like microplastics and fishing nets, the gig bag reflects Vandoren's commitment to a greener future.
