"Excellent"

I have tried many reeds before, including Mitchell Lurie, Rico, Rico Royal, and Vandoren, but none came close to the performance and consistency of Gonzalez reeds. The reeds have a dark, rich tone, and I find that high notes, starting with two above the staff, are easier to play than some other reeds, but with better quality. The reeds are very consistent, 80% of the reeds in the box are performance quality, whereas some other brands only have 10 to 30%.

"Produce dark rich tone but not for beginner"

I agree that this reed produce a nice dark rich tone, but however I think the response is a bit slower than other reeds that I have used. Furthermore it works well on only some of my mouthpieces. It is not as free-blowing as the other reeds. I would use this reed for certain orchestra pieces only.

"Just Perfect!"

After trying several reed brands, including, Mitchell Laurie, Vandoren Traditionals and others of Vandoren, I came across the Gonzalez F.O.F. Reeds, let me just say right out of the box i saw they were all well centered except for two and even with the 4 3/4 I ordered, they respond almost perfectly to light and staccato, these are just great reeds!

"Great reeds, but YOU have to be ready for them."

These reeds are modeled after the old Morre reed that Marcellus used to use. Their profile is steeper then the Vandoren V-12 which a lot of people use.. thicker heal and thinner tip. But, if you are the kind that likes to "chew on the reed" as Marcellus used to say, you are probably not going to like them. They work best on close facing mouthpieces, and ARE NOT CONSISTENT in terms of strength; I can use about 50% of them. But when you get a good one, there is nothing like them for that Marcellus sound.

I have gone through different companies over the past decade for reeds. Rico, Vandoren, Michele Lurie were my major brands that I have tried. My experience with Gonzalez F.O.F 3.5 Bb clarinet reeds is nothing short of spectacular. When you open a box of these reeds, you are going to get an almost full box of high quality "concert ready" reeds as they claim. They are not exaggerating. One point to test, take a Vandoren, or whatever you were playing, and a Gonzalez reed over a light, and compare the grain. The consistency of Gonzalez reeds material-wise is exceptional. The grain is perfectly even, with little to no bark. These reeds will not squeak easily, so they are dependable reeds. The sound is so full too, because of the butt of the reeds. Take a Michele Lurie, Vanoren, and Gonzalez reed, and compare butts. The Gonzalez gives you that thick dark "German" sound, with the articulation of "French" reeds. I am most satisfied with them, and would not dare to change reed companies.

I've used these reeds for a little over a half a year. I get a great orchestral tone with it. The reed didn't warp when I left in the rain and then hot/ humidity for a week. They're also good because they come at least 7 years aged.

I have tried Rico, Vandoren, Mitchell-Lurie, and Vandoren V12 reeds, and went to Gonzalez just this year. The only other reeds that come close to comparing with these are the V12's. These reeds give a nice, dark sound, and I recommend these for any students and maybe any professionals.

You know when you go through that box of Vandoren V12s and you find that one real player. That one reed that makes you go "Ahhh!...!" When if you could have a box of 10 of these, you can with these reeds. Absolutely hands down, with a doubt the best box of reeds I've ever played.

1 person out of 2 found this review helpful

Based upon my 1st try of 6 Gonzalez reeds, I don't find them to be particularly good. I've been playing on Vandoren's for many years & I find normally 7-8 of 10 in a box that will work for me after a bit of adjustment. I've found so far 1 Gonzalez that might work but even that's not assured. I'll try them again several times to see, but normally they would show more promise when I 1st try them.

These reeds have great response. I love the fact that this company gives you the option of chosing 1/4 sizes as well. Great tone.
