Bravo reeds were designed in California, USA and are made to the strictest non-toxic EU guidelines. They are supplied in a box of 5 and reportedly offer longer life span than standard cane reeds.
Upon testing we've found these reeds to be one of the most impressive synthetic options we've ever tried. With a flexibility and response that is commonly missing on synthetic reeds the Bravo offers a clean sound but still with some warmth and a wide dynamic range is possible.
In terms of strength we would say these are very similar to the Vandoren V12 strengths, or to put it another way 1/2 strength softer than Vandoren Classic blue box.

After having read the reviews on Dawkes Music about these reeds, I decided to purchase them. I was not disappointed. Amazing tone, sounds very much like a normal reed. Have tried other synthetic reeds before but this one outshines the rest! Will buy again!
I am a novice player in the sax but already I love these reeds. Probably sound a little brighter than cane reeds, but I have found from my clarinet Bravo reeds, that they are consistent throughout the box and exceedingly long lasting. Have tried the Plasticover reeds too and much prefer these. Will definitely but again.
They are great good sound,they play well every time,how good is that.????
Most synthetic reeds don’t sound as good as cane reeds. These are the exception. I’ve tried a few other brands and these are the best. Reasonable price too.
After a box of 3.5 (because it was a bit weak) I bought a box of 4 reeds as well. Unfortunately, however this was good at first, after 1-2 hours of play it will soften and weaker than the 3.5. I told Bravo support what the cause of the error was, they did not answer anything.
Maybe the best synthetic reed. Good natural sound. As the company writes: half weaker than the Vandoren Classic.
Bravo alto sax reeds. Probably the best synthetic reed I have ever used.
