"Named after the home of Vandoren, the 56 Rue Lepic is the newest addition to Vandoren’s much-heralded line of clarinet 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."
