OVERVIEW

Perfect for Jazz, Rock, and Pop Playing!

The 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.

FEATURES
  • Lasts 20-30 times longer than cane reeds
  • Play immediately, no soaking or break-in period
  • Extremely resistant to warping and splitting
  • Perfectly consistent
  • Never dries out
  • Easy to clean, resulting in a hygienic and odorless reed even after months of play

These are expensive but they play great. Loud, clean, accurate. It appears that a down side of fibre reeds is saliva buildup in the mouthpiece...cane absorbs some moisture. I have tried several other fibre reeds and this was by far the best.

In the product pic is shown a reed with a nice V- shaped heart, that's why i ordered them What I got were reeds with "O" heart at all which were cut straight across with no heart The reed played GREAT until you start the altissimo then it completely fades because there is no heart in the reed to support the altissimo vibration variance. THE REED HAD NO V-SHAPED HEART as shown in the pic. I tried the Med Hard on my Guardala MBII and it was too soft. I tried the Fibracell 4.5 and it SMOKED this reed hands down in all registers. If HH reeds had a V-shaped heart they would be superior to the Fibracells, but they don't. Reed is great below high F, but it's usless to me who plays all night above high F.

Best Uses

  • Works Well With Dukoff D6

Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Tenor Saxophone Reed:

Been using thos reeds for years with a dukoff D6. They don't work as well with my Dukoff D8 (no same response, need fast and accurate when playing funk but I guess it would work for rock for ex). They work Ok with a Rousseau so I guess Otto Link and other common metal jazz mouthpieces

      Way too bright for all around use

      Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Tenor Saxophone Reed:

      Tried this in lue of my fibrecell reeds. It was uncontrollably bright but not with a stable fat tone. Reminded me of the 1970s molded reeds from Bundy. They only had tone for marching bands, and that is even doubtful. Never again for me.

      The Best Hartmann Reed

      By 

      from Columbia, South Carolina

      Site Member

      Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Tenor Saxophone Reed:

      I mistakenly critiqued this reed very negatively, confusing it with the Harry Hartmann Natural Classic reed. The Carbon Fiberreed has, in fact, been a great reed, especially for playing jazz and blues. It is wonderfully consistent and after months of playing is still working well. I would not recommend it for classical work as it is a bit too bright for the sound I want when playing in small ensembles. But for big band or jazz this is the reed of choice for me.

      Not A Good Buy

      By 

      from Columbia, South Carolina

      Site Member

      Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Tenor Saxophone Reed:

      I bought a "medium hard" Fiberreed months ago and tried it on both of my tenors. It was muted and difficult to get any tone. I haven't tried to make any changes and feel I shouldn't need to, considering the price. I put the reed away for months and tried it again just to see if it sounded any different to me. It did not; still muted and lifeless on everything from a classical style mouthpiece to my most radical jazz piece. I wouldn't mind paying this much for a really good reed, but the one I bought was simply worthless. I gave it two stars since it would at least make a sound; just not a good one.

      great sounding reed

      By 

      from Houston,tx

      Site Member

      Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Tenor Saxophone Reed:

      i had this reed for a whole year and when it was in use it sounded great! i'd recommend it for marching as it can produce a bright loud sound and would be suitable for marching.though if playing classical i'd advise you use a wooden reed for a dark tone. this reed could be used for classic but would not have the same sound as wood for obvious reasons. although it your decision if you'd use it for that or not after all. one thing i really liked about his reeds is because it will never honestly warp on you and you'll never have to soak it. the reason i only had it for one year though is because i accidentally once chipped it and it still played good but it ran into another accident far greater than the first time and was decommissioned. i'd recommended this to any player look for a cool different sound

      "The price is nothing compared to how much fun playing will

      Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Tenor Saxophone Reed:

      After playing this reed for a week, I'm lovin' it. It plays easily, responds lightening fast and simply sounds great. Watch out rhythm section, now I can blow over you. I found out I had to experiment with different types of ligatures and placement of the reed on the mouthpiece table to achieve the right sound and feel. I could never get the sound, intensity, focus and feel for my horn like I'm getting now. The price of the reed is nothing compared to how much fun playing will be. I highly recommend HH Carbon Fiberreed. I am now a member of the cane mutiny. Good luck!

      Looks good, sounds good but a good value?

      Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Tenor Saxophone Reed:

      I received my Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed for tenor sax on 3-24 (just in time to play on a gig). I play tested the reed at home and was impressed with the ease of playing and volume the reed produced. Not at all dead sounding but lively with a good feel throughout the range of the instrument. I emailed Harry Hartmann through his website last week inquiring about his reeds, and still have not received a response. I played the new reed for 2 hours on my gig where it cut into the left corner of my lower lip. This morning I discovered the tip of the reed has chipped and is uneven. Using an emery board I managed to re-shape the tip the best I could. I'm not sure if that will save the new reed I just shelled out $31.45 for. During the last 3 years I have been playing Fibracell brand reeds over and over and I'm still playing them. There have been a few issues with them as well but they hold up better in the long run and I have never been cut. I can purchase 3 of them for the price of 1 Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed.

      The Future is NOW

      By 

      from Gaylord, MI

      Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Tenor Saxophone Reed:

      I haven't yet tried the standard HH reeds, but this Carbon version is amazing. I prefer it on both my Soprano and Tenor. Like many, I have HATED synthetic reeds for various reasons. However, this synthetic sounds/feels real, is easy to play, and reliable. Contrary to another review, the HH Carbon fits very well on my narrow-faced Couf metal mouthpiece. If I were an environmentalist, I'd prohibit the use of cane reeds and require all saxophonists to use the HH Carbon reed. JOKING, of course.
