Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Baritone Saxophone ReedThe Harry Hartmann Carbon Series Fiberreeds use high-tech carbon fiber with hollow connecting fiber. The interweaving of the different fibers results in a very true feeling reed. The weave of the fibers is designed to emulate natural cane in ways that no other synthetic reed can. The Carbon fiberreeds reproduce the tendencies of natural cane to be very strong towards the outside (the bark) and more resonant yet not soft at the heart, while being very flexible at the vamp. The result is a very full sound with direct response and a beaming upper register. The top choice of pop and jazz musicians.

WOW... I had been struggling with reed strengths, ligatures and mpc on my bari. I prefer a warm and full tone on my bari however I sacrafice volume and the horn seemed stuffy. The high baffle mouthpieces I have tried were just way to shrill.. when I pair this reed with my Otto Link Tone Edge 8, wow what a difference. This reed gives me the power and edge I was looking for while helping me to maintain the tone that I want to keep. The ower register growls when I need to ...WOW!!
I dunno ... these five-star reviews. I think people just don't want to look stupid for ordering a $40 reed. Heh.
Anyway, my setup: Low-level Unison bari sax ... not super nice. SaxGourmet Lowrider brass mouthpiece with .120" tip opening (they have a smaller option as well), using a Rovner metal mouthpiece-sized ligature.
I realize that "blatt" means leaf in German, but that there is a "das blatt" sticker inside this package is too perfect not to mention.
I find the sound excessively harsh and squeaky. As a bari reed, anyway, this has the problem of feeling concave to me (as in the body of the reed feels thinner than the edges) which makes it no good for me. It also exhibits the "too wide for any mouthpiece" issue I have with many bari reeds.
For me, it sounds nothing like any cane reed, and is even harsher than all-acrylic reeds I have tried in the past. I'm using the Fibracell Premier at the moment and I'm pretty happy with it. The Fibracell actually feels like a somewhat harsh cane reed to me, and when I want, I can actually make it sound like a cane reed at soft volumes in the low-E range.
Long story short: even if you're doing some sort of funk fusion huge brass band thing and think you want a loud reed, this thing is SUUUUUUUPER harsh and no good, at least on my setup.
As a band student, I had an early fascination with synthetic reeds. The thought of not having to deal with the uncertainties and changes in cane reeds relative to moisture, shape, and the whole host of possible issues, along with a limited life and high cost was very interesting to me. So I decided to experiment, after going through about 5 brands of the most common synthetics, I was finally brought to the Fiberreed. This reed not only matches the authenticity of a cane reed, it surpasses it. My instructors were shocked when I revealed that I had been using a synthetic reed and had been putting out the sound I was. It is the only synthetic reed I have dared to, and now exclusively use in concert band. I have been using my single Fiberreed for SIX MONTHS, and it still sounds pristine. I am now a Fiberreed purist. Very highly recommended.
Right out of the box, I tried this reed on my vintage Brilhart
Level Aire, a hard rubber Andre, and a classic Vandoren hard
The response was incredible, and the intonation was perfect.
It is a bit "warmer" than the regular Hartmanns I have been using, but overall, it is a very fine choice. Try one!!
I received my baritone reed, set it up, and it played great, right out of the box! The fundamental was solid, and the harmonics were clear, in all ranges, unlike other synthetics. In my particular ligature setup, I found that minimal pressure on the reed produced the best results. A very fat sound, indeed, and
