VK is a synthetic reed made of a composite material specially developed by Vandoren. It is the result of 7 years of research. This composite material does not imitate the structure of the reed. It reproduces the essential physical characteristics of the reed to obtain similar acoustic behavior.

Totally New

The VK reed is completely new, both in terms of the material of which it is made and the method of obtaining the material, and is covered by an international patent. The VK reed, and the material of which it is made, are produced in France in Bormes-Les-Mimosas. These reeds are 100% recyclable!
