DANSR, Inc announced that first quarter sales of the new V21 Bb clarinet reed have exceeded original projections. Feedback continues to be positive and interest remains strong.


“We are very pleased with the acceptance of the V21 reed,” says DANSR President Michael Skinner. “From the first day seeing the response from artists like Martin Frost and Anthony McGill, just to mention a couple, we knew it would be successful. We’re just a little surprised how quickly it happened.”

The V21 is the first new Bb clarinet reed from Vandoren in over 15 years. It combines the shape of the 56 Rue Lepic with the profile of the V12, resulting in a reed with immediate response and incredible presence and warmth. Its flexibility and sound are suited for clarinetists at all levels—students through top professionals.


“Vandoren’s new V21 reed is the best of many worlds,” noted Diana Haskell, principal clarinet with the St. Louis Symphony. “It offers a great depth and creaminess of sound while maintaining a good color spectrum and easy articulation. The V21 is a strong addition to the Vandoren reed family.”
