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.
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 think someone told a fib on the quality of these reeds. Out of the box, only 1 was actually usable, and it wasn't even all that good anyways. Let me tell you whats wrong: I took all the neccesary steps to break in each of these reeds and they seemed to work for a bit, and then every reed went downhill(except for the par reed). They were especially unstable in the lower register, most notably open G, D, C and low G. Each and every note was accompanied by a faint but EXTREMELY annoying airy sound that no other reed gave me. So then I did a little research and found out that Gonzalez F.O.F 3.5s were harder than Vandoren V12 3.5s. So then it all made sense and I knew I would eventually get used to them. Well after a month they're still unstable and I knew I got used to them because they were more responsive. I play on a Vandoren 5RV Lyre, suited for 3.5, 3.5+ and 4... for Vandoren reeds. Maybe I got a bad box or the reeds were a bit too hard for my mouthpiece. Next time I'm getting 3s
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.
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!
