I use Vandoren reeds a lot for workshop playing and performance. I have also used them for performance, and found that they can last years. They are always consistent, very few have given difficulty, and most of those were eased by a little scraping or soaking, and short playing sessions to bring them into perfect condition.
I can recommend them, not least because they are pretty well a standard. Good quality, not hard on the lip, a good sound - what more can you ask for?
