OVERVIEW

Last 20-30 times longer than cane reeds.

The newest reeds from Harry Hartmann, the Natural Classic Alto Saxophone Reed features a warm and dark sound. The Natural Classic cut has a strong heart while featuring a steep angle to allow for a flexible tip and quick response. The Natural Classic reeds lend themselves well to classic vintage mouthpieces with smaller tip openings. On larger, more open mouthpieces, the saxophone player will find that the tone achieves a wonderful vintage feel and sound.


SPECIFICATIONS
  • Last 20-30 times longer compared to a cane reed
  • Plays 100% from the first second
  • Extremely durable and resistant against splitting
  • Never dry out because they do not absorb moisture
  • Consistent quality
  • Easy to clean and therefore hygienic and odorless even after a month of use

Requires Sanding

Comments about Harry Hartmann Natural Classic Fiberreed Baritone Saxophone Reed:

I received this reed and found immediately that out of the box, it did not play well at all. I have had great success with the other Natural Fiberreed model, right out of the box as reported. The sound was stuffy, and extremely bright on my Runyon Quantum; my RPC, and my Meyer. So, I decided to start sanding (carefully) the vamp and sides, staying away from the tip, working slowly and playing it after each sanding. I would say this reed has potential, but it will require at least another hour to get it to play well. I will stick with the other Natural model, which is great for my needs. All this said, your experience may vary, but if you choose this model, be prepared to sand and modify it carefully. You may well like it.

Not too happy with this

Comments about Harry Hartmann Natural Classic Fiberreed Baritone Saxophone Reed:

I guess it's a matter of what you're used to, because I've been using cane reeds all my life and on the advice of a friend decided to try a Fiberreed. I normally play a 2 1/2, so I got a medium; this read squeaks and whistles like no cane reed ever has for me. Naturally, I don't use it all the time, and when I do I find it is getting easier to play. It's a lie to say it works right out of the box, though. I gave it two stars instead of one because I'm able to play it at all. I'm disappointed, because I thought I was going to be using this instead of cane reeds and saving lots of money on reeds.
