Synthetic reed for alto saxophone.
Just as you would for cane reeds, Ambipoly reeds require 2-3 minutes to soak moisture and 10-20 minutes to break-in before usage. The break-in period, called pairing process, is when the reed pairs itself to the shape of the mouthpiece and the player’s embouchure – it only needs to be done once in the beginning of its life. Highly precise cutting and chemical productions allow the reeds to be consistent in quality and strengths. This standard of consistency is especially vital to maintaining uninterrupted playability in extreme climates and altitudes.
Just like cane reeds, ALTA Ambipoly reeds can be customized and adjusted with a reed knife or sandpaper. They do not degrade over the course of use and do not suffer from the infamous ‘micro cracks’ or fraying commonly problematic for synthetic reeds. With the ALTA Ambipoly Reeds, players can benefit from the longevity of synthetic reeds without having to compromise for the cane-like full rounded sound.
