See All Fibracell Bb Clarinet Reeds
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

I've played clarinet for too many years to mention. I recently ordered one each of the various brands of synthetic reeds to give them a try. The Fibracell reed is amazing! I will never play a cane reed again.

Something worth mentioning is there is no break in or conditioning needed and they don't need to be wet. I place my reed and immediately have a consistent, crisp tone - every time.

I'm playing a concert that starts off with a high C which can be terrifying when there's a few thousand people waiting for that first note! Fortunately, this reed allows me to know I'll be ready to go with no worries.

Reed too soft

This reed is much softer than a cane 2.5 reed. Cannot play upper register in tune.

    Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Bb Clarinet Reed:

    My grand-daughter started band last year in the 6th grade, playing clarinet. Her band instructor demanded a specific reed and strength for everyone in the class, Vandoren #3, so I obliged and got her supplied as requested. While her technical/mechanical abilities improved steadily she was still having trouble with her reeds. Early during the second semester I decided to get her a Fibracell reed, #3.5, to try. It was like a miracle occurred. No more squeaking and squawking, just beautiful tones. She was so happy and so proud. And, the reed lasted a long time. Since she was no longer having to replace reeds, break in new reeds or work around bad reeds, her performance was more consistent. Now, she doesn't want anything but Fibracell reeds and I'm happy to make the investment. Several of her classmates have made the same switch and have been equally pleased. This is an excellent product.

    Really good reeds.

    Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Bb Clarinet Reed:

    Purchased for use on a soprano sax, as well as a clarinet. Very good on either one. Life expectancy and consistent quality makes these reeds cheaper than cane reeds.

      Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Bb Clarinet Reed:

      I had been using #2 reeds, and having trouble pushing out the higher notes. Even though I am a novice, I was already learning about good and bad reeds within a box of brand new natural reeds.
      I decided to try the synthetics, and since the carbon fiber reeds seemed to best simulate the natural ones, I chose Fibracells. Based on previous reviews I bought a stronger reed than I was using. I started out with #4's. They were a bit too much for my rookie embouchure. I switched to #3's, and though still a bit harder to push the higher register out, they support those notes quite handily, and for the first time I was consistently able to reach notes that I couldn't find, at all, before.
      I've been going back and forth, between naturals and the synthetics, and the Fibracells are clearly winning me over. I may try a 2.5 next time, just to see what kind of response it has.

            Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Bb Clarinet Reed:

            I have played the clarinet for over 25 years and have always used the traditional Vandoren reeds. A bass clarinet player in our church orchestra was using a synthetic reed and loved it. Her tone was excellent, so I decided to try one, since the price was very reasonable. I am extremely pleased with every aspect of this reed! No "break in" time needed. Has a great tone with my Jody Jazz mouthpiece I bought a few months ago from Musicians Friend. High notes very easy to achieve and no squeaking! I bought this one as a back-up, since I have no idea how long they will last. I have been using my first synthetic reed for 5 months and it is still firm and sounds great. I read the reviews and was uncertain what strength to get, so I decided to go with a 3. I think it's the perfect strength for me. Next time, I might try a 4 and see if there is a significant difference.
