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.

"About as close to a good cane reed as it gets...."

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.

"Best reed I've ever played."

I don't mean to sound overly dramatic, but these are the best reeds I've ever played! They all play great right of the box and stay just as good for, well, I've been playing on the same one for about 2 months now and it's just as good as the first day. These reeds NEVER warp, so a good sound is assured. Also, Fibracell reeds have as good of better sound quality than any cane reed. Getting a tenor reed for myself has prompted me to tell all my friends about them, and now we've ordered bari and bass clarinet reeds. All play beautifully. I'd really want to post a downside to these, but I see none. They pratictally last forever, they play BETTER than cane reeds, and they last for months. I can't say enough about these reeds. I'm sold for life.

"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.

"Quality control poor"

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.

"Very Warm Tonal Center"

by Brian - 8/7/2012 3:06:34 PM  Share

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.

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?
