Bb-Clarinet ReedNamed after the address of Vandoren, the 56 Rue Lepic, is the newest addition to the traditional line of Vandoren reeds. Designed from thicker cane with a heel taper very similar to German-style reeds, the 56 emits a rich, centered, and extremely pure sound while providing maximum stability and quick response in all registers. Strength gradations are smaller and more specific, resulting in reeds that are very consistent.
These series of Vandoren reeds is perfect. The tone, the response and sound is very clear and good.
Pros 56 rue is a class of reed that you will forget to change. The duration of usage is the longest I have experienced. If you play 2-3 hour per day, you will start to lose the clarity of sound in about 4-5 months. No other reed lasts that much. You can keep it longer if the usage is less. The best for marching bands and orchestras. Hydrated or not its easy to play. Cons Ok, some clarinists may use other series for jazz music or more emotional types of music. You won't have the sweet tone of the Vandoren 21 series that easy. Recomended!
