OVERVIEW

Perfect for Jazz, Rock, and Pop Playing!

The Harry Hartmann Carbon Series Fiberreeds use high-tech carbon fiber with hollow connecting fiber. The interweaving of the different fibers results in a very true feeling reed. The weave of the fibers is designed to emulate natural cane in ways that no other synthetic reed can. The Carbon fiberreeds reproduce the tendencies of natural cane to be very strong towards the outside (the bark) and more resonant yet not soft at the heart, while being very flexible at the vamp.

The result is a very full sound with direct response and a beaming upper register. The top choice of pop and jazz musicians.

FEATURES
  • Lasts 20-30 times longer than cane reeds
  • Play immediately, no soaking or break-in period
  • Extremely resistant to warping and splitting
  • Perfectly consistent
  • Never dries out
  • Easy to clean, resulting in a hygienic and odorless reed even after months of play

      Very consistent and durable reed. They do run a little soft,so you might want to order a size up.

      Plays softer than most 2.5 reeds would. Can't be returned if you play it and find out you picked the wrong strength. Most players will need at least a medium.

      Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Alto Saxophone Reed:

      I've used Rico and Vandoren cane reeds, and Legere synthetic reeds for my career, and I've always preferred synthetic. After a lot of use though, I decided to try something that a few of my colleagues use, this reed.

      I was expecting the reed to run about as hard as a vandoren, but I was wrong. It turned out much softer than I expected, a MH being about a 2-2.5 on the vandoren scale (I play on a 3.5.) This is somewhat a problem, it's very bright but also really sloppy for me... This reed will project, and blast, but if you play a very hard reed already, you may have to look at alternatives...

      Carbon Fiberreed - medium soft

      By Brandon-X4RJk

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Alto Saxophone Reed:

      I'm relatively new at playing the saxophone, but I can already say that this reed has been much easier to play than the Rico 2 orange box reeds I was using before. Without any warm-up, I can easily play a low B flat or a high D (farthest up I've learned so far), which was previously VERY difficult for me. The sound is a little more flexible than my old cane reeds, so it requires more control to hold a note steadily. I'm using the medium-soft version of this reed, and although it's very close to the level 2 Ricos I was using before, it does feel just a little bit softer. The sound of the reed is excellent in my opinion, and it has a nice, bright tone. I think my only complaints are that this one reed was the same cost as an entire box of 10, and it doesn't come with any sort of protective case or slip to be stored in. But overall, I would highly recommend this as a choice for any saxophone player, new or experienced.

      AWESOME!

      By James_Rocks_PRS_Guitars

      from Marysville

      Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Alto Saxophone Reed:

      this reed sounds EXACTLY like a cane reed. it doesn't buzz like the Bari brand plastic reeds and this one is very natural sounding and feels like a natural reed. No squeaks, no chirps and no need to moist and warm up like traditional reeds. it played like a warm up reed from package to the mouthpiece.it's easy to clean, doesn't warp, and best of all, resistant to breaking and splitting.by the way, some people complain of these being too "flexible" as in not stiff enough.based on the harry hartmann website, the sizes actually have numbers. Soft is size 1, medium soft is size 2, medium is size 2.5 hard is size 3. I got medium which plays exactly like a size 2.5 cane reed. except you have to issues with this. harry hartmann created the best reed for players who are tired of purchasing a box od 20 reed and only finding a few good ones that work while breaking reeds and having warping issues.it doesn;t stink from your spit since it slides right off.this is great for people who play alot of outdoor gigs or play in humid places where people smoke and etc etc. and also who play more than one instrument like me, (I switch to guitar during sets and these are ready to go when I am).no need to do warm up songs when I switch.You will not be disappointed.

      This reed will scream!!!!!

      By SSG

      from Detroit, MI

      Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Alto Saxophone Reed:

      I was looking for a good plastic reed when I came upon this reed. Ture, it cost more than the others, but your altissimos will pop like you will not believe. Other sax players will ask you " what's your secret". You have to play it to believe it
