Each reed is individually wrapped in humidity barrier packaging - Flow Pack (see more), which provide ideal humidity lever for ages.
The tone of the V.12 is generally bigger and more consistent than that of the Traditional reed. Moreover V.12 reeds are manufactured from cane tubes of the same diameter as those used for saxophone reeds. This leads to a higher manufacturing cost, as large diameter cane is more rare.
V.12 reeds are thicker at each end :
Thickness at the tip: .10 mm (0.004 inch)
Thickness at the heel: 3.15 mm (0.124 inches, hence the name V.12)
In comparing strengths, a V.12 strength 4 reed is almost equal to a
Traditional strength 3 1/2 reed.
