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.
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.
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 love this thing. When I first received the reed (3.5) I thought it was a little tough, but after playing it for a little bit it softened up. The reed, however, in my experience kept on softening. Now I am going to natural reed 3.0 (I have to) and it is so hard to play. I didn't realize how soft the reed will get until you try a different reed. My sound though is amazing with it.
