OVERVIEW

Special formulation optimized for maximum tonal response.

Forestone reeds are a true evolution in synthetic reeds: they have the same functional properties as cane reeds but are more consistent and not affected by fluctuations in temperature or humidity like traditional cane reeds. The Black Bamboo reeds are a cut above even the standard reed. There is a special carbon mixture employed for improved resistance and unparalleled projection. These are truly the best Forestone reeds ever made.

FEATURES
Lasts longer than traditional cane reeds
Not affected by temperature or humidity
Available in strengths 2, 2.5, 3, and 3.5

    Comments about Forestone Black Bamboo Baritone Saxophone Reed:

    It hasn't been easy for me to find a bari sax reed that performs consistently up and down the full range of my Chinese-made horn. My MH Black Bamboo lets me play pianissimo in the bottom register far more naturally than any other cane or synthetic reed that I've tried. The reed has a soft, non-obtrusive sound. The main downside I've found is that the reed lacks "punch"; i.e., I haven't found a way to play sforzando without spoiling the tone. I have it paired with a Vandoren B27 mouthpiece and metal Vandoren ligature.

    Fantastic

    Comments about Forestone Black Bamboo Baritone Saxophone Reed:

    I double a lot when playing live and prefer the consistency an ever-ready synthetic reed provides. This is the best yet I have tried! Most synthetics are fine when pushed hard, but they have a subpar soft tone sound. This one is very good soft and loud and all around ... if the best natural cane reed in a typical box is a 10/10 for playability and tone, then a Bari plastic reed is about a 5, a Fibracell synthetic is about a 7, and this Forestone Black is about a 9.

    Pros

    • Warm tone, Blends well in a small ensemble

    Cons

    • Blends to well in large ensamble

    Best Uses

      Comments about Forestone Black Bamboo Baritone Saxophone Reed:

      This reed is amazing for playing a solo or small ensemble but in a larger group the reed sound blends all too well with the ensemble. if blend is what you want then this is perfect but this is definitely a solo reed

      Comments about Forestone Black Bamboo Baritone Saxophone Reed:

      I haven't been a big fan of synthetic reeds so far but I tried the Black Bamboo Baritone Saxophone Reed with my King Zephyr bari and it beat all my expectations. I had just moved to the D'Addario Select Jazz reeds, and, of course, there is a bit of adjustment to be done but the Black Bamboo looks like it will be a keeper.
