sounds a sensible comment to me.....Someone said to me that the best cane reed normally sounds better than synthetic ones but they do vary in quality. The Fibracell and plastic reeds are not as good as the best cane reed but always perform to a similar level and are therefore more consistant. I don't know if this is correct nor can I recall yo told me this.
I have some barely used Bari* plastic reeds for Alto and Tenor (Soft) - you are welcome to give them a no-strings attached play if you would like; always worth finding out for yourself. PM me if you are interested, and I can pop them in the post to you.
My experience with Fibracell reeds; the ones that work are very good. But unfortunately they are very inconsistent. I wish they would improve that; shouldn't be too difficult with a fully synthetic product?Hi
I am new to Fibracell reeds and my initial trials prooved unsatisfactory cos of wrong strength choice. Getting the right strength after made all the difference and although there is probably nothing like the quality sound of a cane reed, the plazzi ones serve there purpose for sure. If you can test first before buying you will save yourself some heartache and money too.
