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 lighweight rosin material
  • Brilliant overtones
  • Quick response

I needed a synthetic so I could have a reliable practice reed, that could cross over to be a backup if needed, and this one works great! It doesn't have quite as warm of a sound as a cane reed, so I personally wouldn't necessarily want to use it in a concert, but I could if I had to. It still does sound very good. Using it, I have good tone, intonation, articulation, steady air flow, and appropriate resistance. The only thing I would reccommend is to get one in a softer strength than you're use to playing with. Fibracell's strength comparison chart can be found here: http://www.fibracelldirect.com/compchart.htm So, I currently play with Vandoren Java #2 reeds, a Rico Royal B5 Graftonite mouthpiece on a 1963 Buescher Super 400, and I purchased the Fibracell 1.5 strength. I also have to say that their customer service was excellent! I initially purchased a Bari * M reed and it's strength was much harder than their comparison chart suggested. Since they don't do refunds on reeds (understandably so), and since I was a first time customer, they cut me a deal on this Fibracell reed and it all worked out beautifully! Thank you guys very much for your great care of me as a customer, and for sending me a great quality product!

    I've been using Fibracells for eight months, and I couldn't be happier with them. They last, they're always ready to play, and they provide consistent quality. I own a wide spectrum of strengths, and all have played very well.

              i have been using Fiber cell reeds for tenor , alto and soprano and they are the best ever for one who likes to play at different intervals during the day without having to wet their reed repeatedly ..
              ive been hooked on them for at least 15 yrs ,, yes they are more expensive than ordinary reeds but they also last longer without ever curling or changing their dynastic-ism for longer periods of time .. worth the price and Musicians Friend saves me a long trip to any good music store which are not to convenient to where i live .. bobby g..

                  I am 73 years old and I play in a band twice a week. This reed is easy for me to blow, sounds great and can be played dry with no prior wetting. This is important for me as the sax may sit for long periods between song sets and the reed is always ready.
