A Great Reed
Anonymous 08.12.2014
Vandoren White Master reeds are specifically designed for German system clarinet mouthpieces, NOT Austrian style mouthpieces (use Vandoren Black Master) and NOT mouthpieces designed for French (Boehm) instruments. They do, however, work remarkably well on a wide variety of mouthpieces that they were never intended for. I purchased them initially to use with a Germany system G-clarinet (sometimes called a ?Turkish? clarinet) which came with a matching, long faced, mouthpiece. Although French style reeds worked on this they produced a stifled sound over the ?break? and in the upper register. The white master reeds are narrow in comparison and the centre ?crest? seems to reach closer to the tip. This gives more spring and facilitates a wonderful response, and allows great speed, when tonguing. I purchased soft (grade 2) reeds hoping that I would be able to emulate the ?Balkan? folk clarinet sound. What I discovered was that on the German mouthpiece I was able to produce a very acceptable classical tone as well - The added firmness of the crest helped address any flatness in the upper register. I then tried the reeds on French style mouthpieces and instrument ? a Selmer C85 120 and Yamaha 6c, Buffet Prestige clarinet ? although the reed looks very narrow and slightly short when on these I found that it worked wonderfully producing a very pure tone and great tonguing response. The upper register was easy to control and play in tune. In strength I felt that the White Master grade 2 reed was somewhere between a grade 2-2.5 Traditional Vandoren . The consistency between the 5 reeds I purchased was good ? they all played well. Finally, I tried them on the mouthpiece supplied with a Thomann Chalmeau and they produced a very pleasant sound and helped facilitate over-blowing to a high ?G? with ease ? well above the expected range for the instrument. This is a good product with a potential for use in many more applications than it was designed for ? I will now experiment with different strengths!

Das Blatt für den Klassiker
Elefantenbaby 25.11.2009
Die Vandoren White Master Serie bietet einfach super verarbeitete Klarinetten-Blätter, die in ihrer Tonqualität jeden Klassiker begeistern können. Der Ton ist warm und voll; er wird nie schrill, egal welche Blattstärke oder Tonhöhe. Die Blätter sind lange haltbar. Selbst wenn der Schüler sie schon seit Monaten spielt und die Holzfarbe langsam dunkelgrau wird ;-), geben die Blätter ihr bestes...

Die Deutschen von Vandoren
Steffen153 22.10.2009
Die Vandoren White Master Klarinettenblätter sind, wie alle Blätter von Vandoren gut verarbeitet. Das verwendete Holz macht bei den meisten Blättern einen guten Eindruck.

Gegenüber den Boehmmodellen von Vandoren ist jedoch die Blätterausbeute bei den Vandoren Whitemaster etwas geringer. Spielbar sind 70 - 80 % der Blätter, Konzerttauglich etwa 5-10 %. Versucht man die Blätter nachzubearbeiten gehen sie meist noch schlechter. Hilfreich ist es jedoch, wenn man die Blätter einige Zeit liegen lässt.

Dazu sollte man natürlich die Blätter vorher von der etwas nervigen Klimaverpackung befreien. Als günstig hat es sich erwiesen, die Blätter bis zu einem halben Jahr ohne Klimaverpackung zu lagern bevor man sie nutzt.

Klanglich sind die Blätter für mich das BEste, was man für deutsche Klarinette finden kann, aber das ist Geschmackssache. Etwas bedauerlich ist der ständig steigende Preis der Blätter. Am besten passen sie übrigens nach meiner Erfahrung auf mitteloffene bis offene deutsche Bahnen.
