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: .10mm (0.004 inch)
- Thickness at the Heel: 3.15mm (0.124 inch, hence the name V-12)
- In comparing strength, a V-12 strength 4 reed is almost equal to a Traditional strength 3 1/2 strength reed.
