I love these reeds. The first time I picked one up on my tenor it reacted better and gave better tone than I have EVER gotten out of a traditional cane reed. The reed instantly gave great pitch throughout the horn's entire range no matter what volume or intonation I used. This reed is amazing for playing in a band setting as it needs no warm-up and has a bright vivid tone with huge volume. The only downside to this reed is that it could use a slightly warmer tone but otherwise I would recommend this reed to any player of any level.
I've been playing Bari STAR reeds for at least 7 years. I first tried them at the Frankfurter Musik Messe. At first I wasn't quite satisfied because of the vibrations on your lips. After a while I got used to the manner of playing with Bari Star reeds. (Once in a while I still play Vandoren Woodreeds - Nr.3 on Soprano and Alto, Nr. 3,5 on Tenor and Nr.4 on Baritone Sax). The only problem I see is that the "hard" reeds don't meet my expecations. Therefore I use the reedcutter and cut about 1mm off. This is the right strenght for me. And the right "sound." The dynamics can be fully explored (pppp to ffff) and the effects(slaps, strutters, shavings and altissimonotes) can be properly performed. I never need to wet my reeds anymore, I can start playing immediately. The directness of the bari STAR reeds still have to be beaten. One little thing : For the warm ballads I still use wood reeds. Perhaps they can look for little warmer sound at the BARI Labs. Thank you.
I adopted the first Bari because I didn?t play enough to maintain wood. I loved it, so I switched to the Star when it came out, and it?s even more impressive, especially in the lows. Even if it sucks, at least it?s always the same (especially when you switch horns at gigs). A lot of trouble I had as a kid was that I didn?t know I was fighting the reed half the time, and I didn?t know that manufacturers deliberately package reeds that vary in the same box because players are finicky. I?ve also tried Legere?s synthetic, which was radically different?making the mouthpiece feel somewhat closed/waterlogged to me. (Somebody said legit players prefer Legere, but I ain?t legit.) I believe manufacturers have a generous return policy, so try different brands if you don?t like one. I don?t know why you wouldn?t have a synthetic as a backup. In my opinion, the Bari lasts until you lose it. If you bite it (altissimo stuff; I?m probably a hack), you?ll eventually have to replace it. Understand that the synthetic reed for this recreational player is not a compromise; I like everything about it more than wood. It?s hard to tell if the Bari is brighter; I have a ton of edge on my sound anyway. (My reeds are H/hard.)
This is a must for jazz and blues saxophonists.
It's great for onstage gigs.
The reed stays warm and you can keep a nice sound with less moisture.
It was my first artificial reed and it is the best so far.
