VK1 Synthetic Reed

Nothing beats the sound of a great cane reed, but certain situations call for something different. Introducing the Vandoren VK1 synthetic reed. Something entirely different yet unmistakably Vandoren for when you need it the most.

The VK is a synthetic reed made of a composite material specially developed by Vandoren in the South of France. It is the result of 7 years of research. The composite material does not imitate the structure of cane, but instead reproduces the essential performance characteristics of the reed to obtain the same acoustic behavior.

The Vandoren VK1 material is also 100% recyclable, hypoallergenic, and complies with strict European chemical safety standards held for use by children.

  • Moisture-resistant, rot-proof, does not warp when dried and is saliva resistant.
  • Can be used directly out of the packaging, without any preparation.
  • Performs considerably longer than cane reeds with a high level of consistency.
  • Material is washable and can be disinfected with alcohol.
  • 100% recyclable, hypoallergenic, and complies with the toy standard, chemical part, EU Directive 2009/48/EC, Annex II – Part III
  • Ideal for marching, pit orchestra, changing climates, etc.
