Fibracell Synthetic Tenor Saxophone Reed
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.

"A real breakthrough"

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.

"Great product with right mouthpiece"

Fibracell makes the most consistent reed on the market in my opinion. It doesn't work well for every mouthpiece I have used. However with the right combination the sound/tone is brighter and a little more raw than wood. It also projects better than wood.

"Fibracell reeds - play music, rather than test reeds"

I have been playing Fibracell tenor sax reeds for the past 4 months without switching back to a cane reed. I rotate between 7 reeds and have found great consistancy in volume, timbre, and ease of playing. Some of the reeds have been played 20 to 30 times and still sound good. They don't warp, chip, splinter or lose resonance. After a while some of the Kevlar fibers appear along the edges but can be trimmed off. My biggest concern is a bit of the clear bonding material used on the table side of the reed has peeled off a few reeds. It has happened to a small percentage of the reeds I have purchased. However, the benefits of playing the Fibracell reed still outweighs any problems I have encouintered. I have no desire to switch back to cane reeds. I spend my playing time playing, rather than searching for a good cane reed all day. I have far less mouthpiece issues now, which is a great relief for a saxophone player.

"Good Synthetic Reed"

2 people out of 2 found this review helpful

Lately I've been fed up with the whole reed process (soaking, clipping, rotating, sanding, filing etc. yes I've done it all!) so a clarinetist friend of mine suggested I try synthetics. The last time I tried a synthetic reed was in high school and faintly recall sound like a quacking duck...it was a horrible experience. But I thought what the heck might as well give it another shot. So I ordered a Fibracell #3, 3 1/2 Tenor Reeds. When it arrived I had lent my V16 mouthpiece to a friend so I had to try out the Fibracell on some other mouthpieces I had. The first one I slapped it on was a BARI HR Tenor piece. The main thing I remember about playing this mouthpiece was that it was resistant as hell. It was like the equivalent of blowing through a barn door! Just a really dead sounding piece, but when I put the fibracell reed on it sang like no other. It suddenly was like blowing through a window, very free blowing, bright/warm (but not thin very full) and projected well. i couldn't believe I was getting this sound on a synthetic reed!! So when i got my V16 back a couple of days later I put the fibracell on it expecting it to sound like it did on my BARI piece. It sounded HORRIBLE!!! It was very thin and harsh sounding. I couldn't believe the difference. So then after setting their in the practice room for several minutes bewildered it occurred to me that maybe this reed will only work on dead/stuffy sounding pieces. So to test this I pulled out 3 mouthpieces that I basically considered duds and could never get to work. The first was a stock Otto Link STM followed up my an old Selmer Scroll Shank a Runyon and Meyer. I played the fibracell on all 4 and they had the same result as the BARI piece. The suddenly became more full, vibrant, responsive and brighter. I was completely stunned. So I then preceded to play it on some mouthpieces I considered to already have these qualities. A Morgan Excaliber, Otto Link (A Good One), and Ponzol. The results were much the same as my V16. While some sounded worse than others they all became thin, shrill, and bright(ter). So after all this I feel that synthetic reeds are playable if matched with the right mouthpiece. In this case all the pieces I could never get to work with cane sounded terrific and vice versa. I?m not trying to sway anybody to convert to synthetic reeds but letting you all know that perhaps some of those stuffy/dead mouthpieces (duds) you have lying around might be remedied by trying a synthetic reed on it in my case a fibracell.

"The best reed, period!"

As a rock/blues player in which I growl and wail 95% of the time, I need power, edge and projection. The Fibracells deliver ALL that better than any cane reed (I've tried them all) with the ADDED bonus of all reeds play, no warm-up, not affected by temperature or humidity changes. Compared to Baris and Plasticovers the Fibracells definitely project better with noticeably more volume and power.

I have heard a lot of good things about the Fibracell tenor reeds and would like to try one. I currently use 2 1/2 strength Rico Royal reeds. Would you recommend I get the same strength in the Fibracell tenor reed?
