Cane Frederick Hemke Reeds
Before choosing a pack of Frederick Hemke cane reeds, you'll need to ask yourself two questions: "what saxophone type do I play" and "what is my preferred reed strength". Remember, reed strengths are numbered 1 to 5 (soft to hard). Softer reeds play easier in the lower register while stiffer reeds play more freely in the higher register. Usually, beginner players opt for soft to medium strengths because they are easier to play, but there are really no right or wrong answers. The trick is to find something you feel comfortable with, and that can be figured out by trying out various strengths throughout the course of your musical journey.
Each Frederick Hemke cane reed pack is named after the sax type it's suited for, so you'll have no problem finding the right ones for you in this section. For example, there's the Frederick Hemke Alto Saxophone Reeds: a best-selling pack that's favored by both classical and jazz ensemble players. Or, how about the Tenor Saxophone Reeds: like the alto reeds, these are popular sellers that are available in various strengths and are well-suited for traditional round-chambered mouthpieces. Even the Soprano Saxophone Reeds and Baritone Saxophone Reeds come with high ratings - so whichever sax type you play, you can expect a huge improvement in your sound when you go with Frederick Hemke cane reeds.
