Fight Against Fake

Vandoren Authentication Page

Like every world-renowned quality product, we are the victims of counterfeit. We have therefore devised a system of identification for each of our reeds and our boxes with the help of an individual code:

  • The box has a code in the form of XXX-XXX-XXX printed on the cellophane above the bar code.
  • Inside the box, every reed carries a marking in the form of XXXXX-XXXX engraved on the table, above the Vandoren label.

Musicians and retailers can confirm the authenticity of their Vandoren reeds and reed boxes at any time. Each reed and reed box contains an identification code that can easily be verified.
