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 have been a band director for 18 years. clarinet is my main instrument, and i've always wanted to try the fibracell reed. i just got my r13 overhauled, so i figured i'd try a new reed. i really wasn't expecting much, but when i got the reed, it immediately surprised me how closely it resembled a cane reed. i put it on my mouthpiece, instinctively licking it even though it doesn't need it, and blew a phrase from Weber's Concertino. the tone jumped out and the notes were in tune and effortless. i am sold. why didn't i use this in college? i could have been practicing instead of scraping, choosing, stressing and buying so many different brands....

      Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Bb Clarinet Reed:

      I am an older player (84) After a 60 year layoff I resumed playing in a concert band. Formerly competent,
      I took lessons and experimented with 5 different mouthpieces and reeds. A Van Doren Lyre mouthpiece,
      with Fibrocel 2.5 on a new Buffet E11 made re-entry into music far easier.I recommended them to another older "retread" player and it worked for him too.

      Great Reed!

      Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Bb Clarinet Reed:

      I have played in several community orchestra's and concert bands over the years. I play a Buffet R-13 Greenline, which is a great instrument because of its stability and consistent tone. I have used the same Fibracell reed for many years now. The tone, to me, is a little brighter than a standard cane reed, which is fine for the style of music we play. This reed is great for situations where I have to play a solo in church, or double in the pit for a theater gig and have to pick up the instrument after it has been sitting for some time. You do not ever ever have to worry about whether the reed dried up! Longevity is amazing.

      Comments about Fibracell Premier Synthetic Bb Clarinet Reed:

      Pushing in everything all the way wasn't enough to get this reed out of the flat side. On a regular Vandoren V12 I play around 25 cents sharp pushed all the way in. The Fibracell played 10 cents flat pushed all the way in. Mine could have been a dud but I don't recommend this unless you have a 64 mm barrel. Also, go up one half strength.

      I was initially skeptical but wanted to try one. Absolutely love it! I played with a Vandoren cane reed and within minutes changed back to the Fibercell again. Won't use cane any more. Fibercell produces clear tones and it's nice to not have to soak it. Longevity is a real plus as well. Excellent product and well worth the $
