Product Information

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.

I have already used a box of these reeds and I'm very impressed with them. Unlike conventional reeds, every one is perfect. Each one is long lasting and does not split or break and, in my experience, each one 'sings' beautifully making practice a joy. The only downside is that when brand new, the reeds are very stiff and take a few practice sessions to play in. I find I need to replace the reed when it stops playing nicely. All in all, I'm a convert to these reeds, they play well and because of their durability are actually really good value.

Very good reeds, #2 works for me.

very good!

bought a single reed to try out - tone seems good. It does have a tendency to slip on the mouthpiece while you tighten the ligature, but OK once set up. Really saved the day when I played outside on a very hot day with our band - no problem with the reed drying out and failing to speak (as several other clarinet players found on the day).

good reed - but make sure you get the right strength - very important.

Very good value only two small points with the reed being black
seeing the adjustment against the mouthpiece needs more care
and as I normally use a 2.5 reed I do find the 2.5 a bit stronger
and would try a 2 the next time although the tone is good.

First time I've used synthetic reeds.
Had read so much about them but wasn't sure if the extra expense would be justified.
Bravo were a cheaper option than Legere but have proved to be ideal for my use.
Found them to be more resistant than cane but they do soften after about 30 mins warm up.
Probably should have gone for 1/2 strength lower.
Will definitely outlast my cane reeds and encourage me to improve my embouchure/breathing.
Very satisfied
