Forestone Synthetic Clarinet ReedForestone is a new synthetic reed from Japan that has most of the advantages of cane but none of the drawbacks. It is the ideal choice for clarinet and saxophone players at all skill levels who seek to free themselves from the problems of inconsistency and instability associated with cane reeds. Forestone reeds are made with a special material that contains wood fiber, more than 50 percent of which is actual bamboo. The result is a clarinet or saxophone reed that not only sounds and feels like a good cane reed, but looks like one too. Forestone reeds have a robust timbre that is clear and strong, with just enough buzz in the sound to ensure good projection and carrying power. Intonation is stable and the reeds articulate well from the lowest to the highest registers. Forestone reeds were developed in Japan over a 30-year period. Intensive research into appropriate materials and a new fabrication method for this type of product - injection molding - has resulted in the finest synthetic reed on the market.

As a reed doubler I am a fan of synthetic reeds because of their ability to last for months and to sit for awhile on a mouthpiece and be playable without a constant supply of moisture. I ordered this one because it is new on the market and bears a lofty description of its manufacture and characteristics, but I am pretty dissatisfied with it. Thin tone, inconsistent vibration, flat or unresponsive in the higher registers, etc.
I ordered strength 5 (the highest they currently make). I play on close-tipped and long-faced mouthpieces, so I need strong reeds to match. On cane, I play a Vandoren V12 3.5+. In comparison to Vandoren, a Forestone 5 feels like maybe a Vandoren V12 2.5 or 3. While I have no use for this reed in orchestra, I find it works pretty well for pit gigs where I play multiple woodwind instruments. The sound I need in the pit is different than what I aim for in orchestra, and this works there. The thing that I found to be a nice surprise is that this reed is fairly useful on my Eb clarinet (though I wish it was a tad stronger for that as well). My Eb clarinet barrel has a slot cut out in the back, so I can use the Bb reed without having to cut part of it off.
I am interested in trying new options and would love to find a really nice synthetic for various uses. I tried the Forestone and found that they are very light compared to any other brands out there. They seem to have some potential, but currently are not a viable option unless you like a really light reed.
Forestone reeds work for me. I'm satisfied with how they play. A single reed lasts for a couple of months. I spend more time practising and less time fussing with reeds.
My warning is that the Forestone hardness scale doesn't sync up with the rest of the world. For me, a clarinet mouthpiece that usually takes a #2 reed requires a Forestone#4. It took time and money to figure that out. Now that I know what strength to buy, I'm a happy Forestone-user.
