Gonzalez Saxophone Artist Sarah Watts says:
The FOF reed was designed for clarinetists that want a richer, darker sound.
It stands for For our Friends and is made to an American 'File' and has thicker cane in the heart.
Made from high quality 3.2mm blanks, the FOF reed is also scraped more in the shoulders for positive low register response. Designed for discerning Professionals and Advanced Students.
This cane is made of premium quality on a segment of 3.6 mm. rectified to 3.18 mm.
The material is stored to age for at least 4 years before its manufacture. Because of its deeply carved shoulders, the reed is completely released in the bass sounds, where vibrates like no other. While a heart with higher density allows to attack the high notes with ease and refinement.
