OVERVIEW

Fibracell reeds deliver vibrant tone with great longevity.

They have brilliant overtones for a full, resonant tone, a quick response for better articulation, and excellent pitch stability and intonation, even for clarinet. Best of all, they have the same woody tone as cane but with better projection. Fibracell reeds even have the same weight and stiffness as cane (cane floats and so does Fibracell!) but they last up to 4 times longer with no unplayable reeds and aren't affected by heat or humidity. With their high strength and long-lasting durability, they're less likely to give out on you in the middle of a performance, too.

What is Fibracell?

Fibracell is a sophisticated composite of aerospace materials designed to exactly duplicate the way nature constructs the cane that goes into the very best cane reeds. Very stiff but sound-absorbing Kevlar fibers are suspended in a lightweight rosin using extremely exacting production standards. Each reed is precisely machined and trimmed for a consistently perfect shape, so you get the same reed time and time again.

FEATURES
  • Kevlar and lightweight rosin material
  • Brilliant overtones
  • Quick response
  • Excellent pitch stability and intonation
  • Powerful projection
  • Same woody tone as cane
  • Same weight and stiffness as cane
  • Last up to 4 times longer than cane
  • No unplayable reeds

      The best

      By PAUL--W-Yr

      from PUERTO RICO

      Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Alto Saxophone Reed:

      I have been using Fibracell since 2000 on my tenor and have nothing but praise for it. It's been consistant for long term use. What the other reviewers have discovered is what I have experienced all of these years. Makes great music.

      Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Alto Saxophone Reed:

      Just tried the fibracell Alto 3 reed. This is EASILY the best reed I have ever played on. The sound and feel are great, and they're made right here in the US! Will most likely never play a conventional reed again after this.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Alto Saxophone Reed:

        These reeds need no prep and are durable. However they are numbered differently than other brands. A #3 plays like a #2-1/2 wood reed, or even a #2. Now that I know they are softer than others, I buy higher numbers, and recommend you do the same.

        Second purchase of these reeds. As a result I may be the Saxophonist in our band least likely to be messing with my reed. With these reeds (and the 4 I use for Jazz) I can play the WHOLE range (low Bb to altismisso F or what ever).

          Bought this for my daughter and she loves it. She was worried when only one reed arrived in the mail because she was replacing them every week, it's been a month and she's still very happy with it. She sounds better which I was attributing to extra practice but she says part of the better sound is from the reed, she explained that some reeds make notes sound squeaky...If she's happy with it I am too!

          Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Alto Saxophone Reed:

          I bought this for my daughter half way through the school year. She sounded better right away. I had tried several brands of traditional reeds and she just sounded ok, so I thought I would try it. She prefers it also, no need to moisten for a long time. At the end of her first year she was first chair. She started on the 3, now I am going to reorder and get the 3.5. Her comments are: it is easier to play, doesn't chip as easily and less squeaking.

          one of the best reeds I have used

          Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Alto Saxophone Reed:

          Went they become fatigue it is hard to notice, just may sure it is replaced once they become a little flat sound.
          Out dry they play perfect, no need to humidify it. Excellent ;sound, it is an improvemnt from any real cane reed I have ever used.
          They last about 3 month with a constant use.
          For the price of one you can save 2 months of real cane reeds.

          from Jackson, Tennessee

          Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Alto Saxophone Reed:

          Great tone. When you open the package, you just put it on your mouthpiece and go. You don't even have to test it. These reeds are consistently good and dependable.
          These reeds are consistent and have a great playability. Unlike cane reeds, when you open a new fibracell, you know it's going to work.
          Lasts a long time.
