Fibracell Synthetic Bb Clarinet ReedThey 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.

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....
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 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.
I am a high school student with 6 years of experience on clarinet and I play in five different ensembles including highly selective school and community orchestras/bands. I normally use Vandoren V12 3.5s, with a Vandoren M15 mouthpiece on an older Buffet R13.
I typically throw away half of the reeds in a box as soon as I open it, and would love to find a synthetic reed that would last longer than the cane reeds. We were disappointed by the Fibracell. I tried out the Fibracell 3.5 reed with my teacher, a professional orchestral clarinetist. We determined that the 3.5 was soft, played out of tune, and with bad tone. It also is not possible to play the highest notes on the instrument using this reed. (The highest I could get was to altissimo G or A.)
In short, this is a disappointment and a waste of money.
I'm the principal clarinetist of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and am proud to admit I play on a Fibracell reed. Sounds and plays just like a wood reed, but with the ease of use of a plastic reed. Just put it on and play, no warming up required!
