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.

  • Kevlar and lighweight rosin material

In my opinion, Fibracells are completely different than any other synthetic out there. Don't let the fact that this is a synthetic scare you away. I use them exclusively on alto and about 50% of the time on tenor. They are definitely brighter, louder and more efficient than most cane reeds, so you'll probably need to back off on the air speed a bit. Other than that, they play and feel like a good broken in cane reed. They play the same way every day no matter the conditions, humidity, weather etc and I get about 50-100 playing hours out of a single reed. They're obviously great for playing outdoors or doubling, but they're great for all kinds of playing. I agree that the numbered strengths run a bit soft, so I'd order a half strength harder than what you play in cane. Also check out the traditionally graded, regular Fibracells. Sometimes those work a bit better for me. My only complaint is that there is some noticeable variability between reeds of the same type/strength and it's not even up for debate. You may want to order a few at a time just to experiment. Highly recommended.

The latest Fibracell (tenor, 4.5) I purchased was grossly asymmetric. The cut at the base of vamp was not centered (I should have just sent it right back without opening). The reed played poorly. Measurements of the "C" line with a PerfectaReed gauge shows the left side of the reed is thicker than the R down the whole length of the vamp. L R 1 13.5 12 (each unit is .001") 2 14.5 13 3 20 16 4 29.5 25 5 40.5 35 6 52 44 7 64 55 8 79.5 67 About 15 minutes with a razor and sanding block to even off the high side got the reed playing decently, but now it plays like a 2.5.

        I had heard about synthetic reeds but was afraid to try them. Sometimes in life you have to take risk and I'm so glad I did. I LOVE this Fibracells. The only thing is you may have to buys several at different strengths to find the correct size for your particular Mouthpiece. I play them on Tenor and Soprano and love them so much that I'm adding them to my Alto rotation. There is no wetting warming up, or breaking in period. You just play and the sound is just as good as any wood reed. NO MORE BOXES OF REEDS THAT DON'T PLAY.
