OVERVIEW

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.

FEATURES
  • Kevlar and lightweight rosin material
  • Brilliant overtones
  • Quick response
  • Excellent pitch stability and intonation
  • Powerful projection
  • Same woody tone as cane
  • Same weight and stiffness as cane
  • Last up to 4 times longer than cane
  • No unplayable reeds

I don't know what the very last review on here could mean since I use this reed on a C* mouthpiece and it works just perfect. He must have gotten a dud but I won't ever need to know what he meant because I've been using this reed for about 2 months now and it plays EXACTALY like it did on the first day. This reed is a great money saver if youÆre starting to get sick of buying new packs of $20 reeds every week. Move over that hassle and experience what one of these reeds is truly capable of. Just imagine your best playing cane reed you've ever broken in now imagine that reed never dying or chipping. That's what a Fibracell could imitate if you just simply get a thick one of these(like say the 4 or maybe even 5) and then learn to use a small tool that's not too sharp, but sharp enough to shave away the reed to make it thinner until it feels right when you play it. I did this and it's worked great for me. But if you don't want to have to go through with that just get a size that's about 1/2 strength higher then what you use in cane. Trust me, if never want to have to buy reeds again, let this be the last reed you buy. You won't regret it!

Fibracell reeds are generally good, but not great. If you find one that works, it will really outlast cane. I order about 3 at a time (same strength) and each one plays differently. Some are too hard, some too soft, and maybe one that is just right. They end up being as expensive as cane, but last longer.

Yours vs Mine

Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Alto Saxophone Reed:

I just got the three reeds I sent for from your company. I use a #10 Rovenr for the tenor and #8 Rovner for the alto and #8 Otto Link on the soprano. I found that the Alto and the Tenor play now with a darker sound. I use Platic coat Ricco's #2.5 on the alto and Tenor and #3 on the soprano. The big difference is that the sound that I have now isn't as crisp as the platic coats. I wanted to get and I do get a 50'60's sound (Also s sweet sound on the Alto and Soprano) on my instruments with the plastic coats. I am debating whether I should send the reeds back as they are really exspensive and don't play the same as or better than the Ricco's to me at least

Not Worth the $$

Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Alto Saxophone Reed:

I've been playing on a 2.5 Rico Plasticover with a great sound and no problems. I ordered a Fibracell because of the longevity/sound quality claims. I don't doubt that the reed will last a long time. The midrange sounds thin and the reed has an overall thin sound. I am most annoyed that I ordered three different sizes 2.5, 3, and 3.5 only to find that the Fibracell 3.5 is not as stiff as a Rico Plasticover 2.5 The reviews online suggested ordering down (maybe a 2) so I ordered a 2.5 It was too thin so I ordered a 3. The 3 was a little warped in the tip so WWBW sent me a replacement, 3.5 this time. The next step would be to order a 4....but I think I'd rather just stick to cane reeds because of the superior sound quality. The cane reeds do wear out but at least they sound good...

I think I'll just stick to my v12 reeds.This Reed might come as a close second.Its very responsive,but I find that throughout the entire practical range its not sturdy.It may just be the mouthpiece,but I thought I would put my input for others to see.
