      Fibracell

      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.

        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 bought this reed for my daughter that plays the tenor saxophone. She was having an allergic reaction to her cane reeds. The fibracell reed has allowed her to continue to practice daily, without having a reaction. She still uses her VanDoren reeds at her lessons and for performances. The fibracell reed was a perfect solution for her!

                I like these reeds because they need no prep/conditioning, and they are long-lasting. My only complaint is that they are NOT numbered the same as other reeds, so I've got several that are too soft. Other types at the same number are stiffer than these.

                  Living in New Mexico, which is very very dry, I decided to go for synthetic straight away. These seemed to be closest to real reed, and they work beautifully for my son, at school and home. He likes to leave his sax on a stand, and pick it up throught the day and play for a few minutes. The reed stands up to this treatment and sounds good every time. I am very pleased with these reeds and will be buying more as needed.

                    No break in period. No worries about your reed drying out between sets. Plays consistently well and great tone. Lasts much longer than a natural reed. I ain't ever going back to natural reeds. This plays better than natural and has none of the problems. Musicians Friend treats me great and always exceeds my expectations.

                          Perhaps, it may be better for someone a lot more experienced than me, or maybe a student that wants to save some cash on reeds. It just didn't sound right, no soul in it.
