I have been using Hemke reeds for about 15 years. I have tried many other reeds but I can't beat the consistency found with these reeds. I sometimes feel they don't last as long as I would like, but after trying every reed under the sun, I always come back to Hemke.

Stick to Vandoren

Pros: Produce a nice dark sound Reasonably priced Fairly consistent Cons: Undependable. In some cases, the reeds would warp within the first several days

Easy "break-in" for my Jumbo Java mouthpiece. Most of the reeds play very well right out of the box.

hemke Tenor reeds

Comments about Frederick Hemke Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

These reeds work well for me. I realizes sax players we look to improve our sound as we want to sound, trying different set ups/ reeds. These reeds give me the darker mellow tone I prefer in both jazz/classical music.

            Comments about Frederick Hemke Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

            Been working with Hemke reeds for about a year. Play mostly #2 1/2, which seems to work well with my setup. Trying #2 to improve low range with current setup. Still testing, looking at other brands also.

            Fellow musicians urged me to try these, and I'm glad they did. Like the darker sound.

            Outstanding "Sonny Rollins" Reeds

            By 

            from Oxon Hill, Maryland

            Site Member

            Comments about Frederick Hemke Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

            I read a Wikipedia piece that said Sonny Rollins prefers these reeds and tried them. I can see why! They are amazingly playable! I get good control, a great boost to that old-style "breathy" sound, and my tone seems to sound more full and colorful! Though I don't quite sound "Like Sonny," (even though I'm also using his preferred Otto Link Super-tone metal mouthpiece) I seem to be channeling Dexter Gordon from time to time! Thank you WW&BW for great reeds at a great price!!!

            Hemke reeds

            By 

            from Greenbelt, MD

            Site Member

            Comments about Frederick Hemke Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

            I've been playing sax for four years. Have played blues harp and been a singer for almost 50 years, so i'm not new to music. I'm now using Hemke 3s on my alto with a V16 mp & metal ligature and find that the horn plays easily with rich but bright tone. I get tons of compliments on my sound. After trying many mp and reed combos I recently returned to a Meyer 5 mp, Rovner ligature and Hemke 3s on my tenor. Seems to be working well for me. Rich sound with warmth and a bit of punch. I find the reeds to be consistent and last well enough. Suggest try both a Rovner and a good metal ligature when you try out the reeds.
