4 Advantages of the Vandoren VK Reed
Stability: The material is moisture resistant, rot-proof, does not warp when dried and is saliva resistant.
Durability: The VK performs considerably longer than cane reeds with a high level of consistency. The VK reed should be stored on a flat surface. We recommend the use of a flat surfaced reed holder (not a standard reed holder).
Ease of Use: The reeds can be used directly out of the packaging, without any preparation. The material is washable and can be disinfected with alcohol or with any food compliant disinfectant.
Consistency: Unparalleled consistency resulting in reliable strength, sound, articulation, projection and high note stability.
