The Zonda reeds take their name from the hot wind that races through the Zonda Pass in the Andes Mountains. The Zonda whips the growing cane back and forth, strengthening its fibers. Under the stewardship of 2 generations of the Gonzales family, the Zonda cane is painstakingly cultivated in a pesticide-free environment, then aged and hand-selected for these reeds.

By far the best reed for me. Nothing else I've tried has been as consistent.
My teacher first introduced me to the Zonda reeds. I was very surprised. They play excellently, but are slightly thinner than others. I normally play on a Vandoren V-12 3 or 3.5, but I a 4 here. It worked very well, especially in the upper register. These reeds are not French-filed so I was able to get a deeper, more "meaty" tone. I have an audition piece that is mainly in the upper register and very loud. I may end up using these for that audtion. My only concern/complaint is that the reeds I got were slightly too large to fit into my reed case (a ProTec 12 slot). I had to push them in a little more than I should have but I got it to close, not very easily though. Use these if you want a rich powerful tone, especially in the altissimo register.
