Fibracell Synthetic Tenor Saxophone 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 find these reeds to out perform cane. As long as this product is available I will use it exclusively. As other reviewers note there is variability in the reeds so to be on the safe side order more than one.
If you keep them cleaned up they will have a remarkable lifetime. Bravo to the inventors.
I agree with others here, the fibracell is a fantastic synthetic reed...I use a fibracell 3.5 tenor reed for my alto, does just what I want it to do, especially with a BG Super Revelation ligature. Jazzy Jazzy! (Or should I say Bluesy! Bluesy!) I recommend them highly. I am not a stage performer with alto but I am a serious musician -- including years on jazz flute and piano.
These are nice synthetic reeds, they give your horn a very nice warm tone that can turn muddy if you already have a dark tone on your horn. They last a long time as well, I have a f=Fibracell Premier No. 4 that I use with a Dukoff D9 on a vintage Evette Schaeffer tenor. For me the playability is a little stiffer than a Legere Studio Cut 2.75, it does have more resistance, to where the tone sounds just a little nasaly, and it has that same slightly harsh over tone that the Legere has. The Fibracell feels more like a natural reed and does not get as slippery as say a Legere. The vamp of the reed is much longer on the Fibracell though and that might be contributing to the more warm almost muddy sound of the Fibracell. Overall it is an excellent reed for Classical music, I would use a Legere or even a Harry Hartman for Jazz music; but to each his own.
In the desert (where I live) cane reeds either dry out and stop vibrating or grow black mold. These synthetic reeds are a godsend - beautiful velvety low Bs on my Reference 54 tenor and lovely altissimo, right out of the case and onto the horn. They play and play and play and no ugly, sickening black mold. They are a bit brighter and lack a little center to the tone, but I'll take that trade, any day. Pick a reed 1/2 to a full strength harder than your normal cane reed. Save your cane for the studio.
This is the first synthetic reed that I have tried, so I cannot compare it to other brands. I think it may be the original though. I now it's been around for over 30 years anyway. I am a big fan of cane reeds and pretty fussy about them too. My main set-up is a stainless Berg Larsen .120 tip. My mouthpiece is fussy about what reed I use. I've had the best results with Rico jazz select cane reeds. I play in a rock/dance band that does a lot of outdoor gigs and am a doubler so have had a hard time keeping my reeds moist enough. This reed solved the problem!
