After preaching against "synthetic" reeds for years, I am now sold on Fibercell Reeds for my Baritone. I play a #2 Fibercell reed on a Ponzel Custom Mouthpiece with a YBS62 Yamaha sax. I have been unable to tell any NEGLIGIBLE difference VS Cane reeds, matter of fact the only difference is the consistency of the Fibercell over the cane. The reed performs well in all registers and is particularly vibrant in the low register. They play almost forever!! Which makes them cheaper in the long run.

Softer than expected

3 strength Reed was softer than expected and got softer as I played it. It had kind of a buzzy tone using a hard rubber Berg Larson mouthpiece.

IMPROVE YOUR SAXOPHONE SOUND

By

Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Baritone Saxophone Reed:

It Pops!! Used with a metal mpc, Fibracell reeds ensure a clear distinct enunciation of every note you play on a bari. No more 'muddy' bla blas from your horn. Fibracell and a Ponzol mpc make my 992 Yani bari a distinct solo instrument!! Fibracell even enhances the clarity of my 992 Yani tenor with a Morgan Excaliber mpc.

Fibracell Premier: right and ready to go when you are

Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Baritone Saxophone Reed:

Been using Fibracells on my a, t, b, and clarinet for years. For me they have good response. Most importantly they are very consistent. Because they are synthetic, they are always ready to play (especially for my clarinet). This most recent 2.5 bari has been one of the best; I'm using a JJazz DV 7* and a Rovner EDII lig.

        Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Baritone Saxophone Reed:

        Great for jazz. Same response down to the bottom - with no added resistance.
        Have used them for classical, where quicker response is necessary.
        Best luck on larger saxes - baritone and bass.

            I use Fibracells on bari, tenor, alto and clarinet. They are very conistent in terms of quality and playability. They do tend to be a bit harder than natural reeds of the same number.

            Professionally playing for 20+years. Metal Runyon Spoiler, 2.5 Fibracell, LG Lig, 1948 Beuscher Big B Bari silver plated-bare brass neck. I've switched from Hemke to the fibracell! it has a huge projection, aggressive bark/attack, even bigger resonance in lower thru upper register than with cane reed. Easier to speak. My bari sounds like a wood chipper now lol. Love it!!

                Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Baritone Saxophone Reed:

                Have had the current #2 Fibracell for well over a year. It's time for a replacement. They may lack some of the warmth a cane reed as Rico Royal but it's not much. Was recommended by Jazz/gospel saxophonist, Sean Wallace, when I studied with him some years ago at Western Michigan University. No curing or treating cane - no warping (so little). Just put it on the mouthpiece and blow.
