Bari is the top-of-the-line brand for synthetic reeds. Synthetic reeds will usually last several times longer than traditional reeds. They can still be chipped or cracked, but they will not wear out like traditional cane. The reeds are formatted to sound as similar to cane reeds as possible, but there is a slight difference.

    Comments about Bari Synthetic Tenor Saxophone Reed:

    I would never ever return to cane reeds, you get 3-4 good cane reeds out of a box of 10 and they don't last long. Whereas the BARI plastic reeds last absolutely ages, and blow the same everytime, through the whole range. I used the finest grade wet & dry sand paper to rub the reed down (on the smooth side) one rib at a time, to Taylor make my reed, and it's brilliant. Haven't changed it in 2 years, I clean it with coconut oil.

    Same Every time!

    Comments about Bari Synthetic Tenor Saxophone Reed:

    I was pleasantly surprised with this reed. I was expecting something harsh and bity but i have to admit it behaved as a brand new reed would, not soaked or anything. And the best part is, it does this every time. It takes the slightest amount of extra work, but i honestly love the tone that it gives me. Its also very easy to manipulate my tone from something full and fat to a really subtoney sound. I am very happy with this reed.

    Comments about Bari Synthetic Tenor Saxophone Reed:

    I've been playing for 50 years and tried these about ten years ago. I won't go back to cane any time soon. I play Blues, Classic Rock and Country and have used the same one, medium, for some time now. Sounds great on my Berg Larsen and my Buescher super 400 and not too bad with the Nickel LA sax, both tenors.

    Bari Plastic Reeds Make Playing Easier

    By

    Comments about Bari Synthetic Tenor Saxophone Reed:

    These make playing the saxophone so much easier than playing with wood reeds. I use a medium on my Selmer Tenor and they are worth the cost. These do not warp and do not chip easy like wood reeds. My Bari reeds have lasted for years. Easy to clean. If you struggle with wood reeds -try these. Your sound will be clear and you will hit every note. These reeds give me confidence when I perform solo pieces.

    A great reed that lasts a long time!

    Comments about Bari Synthetic Tenor Saxophone Reed:

    I was introduced to the Bari reed about 15 years ago by the repair man for the U.S. Naval Academy Band in Annapolis. I tried one and have been using nothing but the Bari reed these past 15 years.

    Unusually potent

    Comments about Bari Synthetic Tenor Saxophone Reed:

    After a frustrating bout with the redesigned Fibracells and cane reeds that wouldn't ever cooperate, I miraculously stumbled on BARI's plastic reed. The magic combo; I use a BARI tenor medium as the main reed on my alto sax and a BARI baritone soft as the main reed on my tenor sax. The projection and timbre are unstoppable, and the most amazing detail of it all is that I've been using the same reeds for 5 years, and still have instant setup for performances.

    Worth The Investment...

    Comments about Bari Synthetic Tenor Saxophone Reed:

    Having tried all kinds of reeds from an assortment of manufacturers, I have settled since 1991 on the Bari reed family. It is literally the only reed I invest in. They are more durable than regular cane reeds and for my money, more flexible in terms of the sound. It really gives the mouthpiece a punch and lets the horn speak fully to whatever music I'm playing. From an economic standpoint, what I would have spent in reeds, I make up for with these in all ways. With proper care (try not to scrape it on your clothes) and service (wash the mouthpiece and reed after each performance), they will last far longer than any 5 conventional reeds. It's September and I've had the same reed in my tenor since May. It's got some usage marks on it, but it still blows great. I get the altissimo I want on demand and without strain. I highly recommend these reeds, but expect the horn to sound different. The sound will overtake you.
