New Premier version of the Fibracell reeds. Now numbered like classic reeds in 2, 2.5 strenth etc. These new Premier Fibracell clarinet reeds are super consistent and can last months.
The Fibracell material is a sophisticated composite of aerospace materials designed to precisely duplicate the way Nature constructs reed cane. Very stiff but sound absorbing Aramid fibers are suspended in a lightweight resin formulation.
Upon testing we've found them to be very lively and responsive. They definitely add volume to the tone, its worth noting that they come up a good 1/2 strength softer than you would imagine. A strength 3 is equivalent to a Vandoren V12 2.5 or Vandoren blue box 2 to 2.5 max in our opinion.

I bought a fibracell reed as an experiment to keep as an "emergency spare". I think it's fine as a back-up but I don't feel that it has quite the same tone as a cane reed.
I wanted to try an artificial reed - interesting but rather bright.
The main advantage of these reeds is that they don't need to be wetted before use, and seem to be more robust than natural reeds. I tend to leave the reed on the mouthpiece for instant use. One reed lasted about 7 months in use typically one hour per day.
Love my new reed, it has made all the difference and it arrived the next day!
I am still trying to get used to the different sound and feel
this is the second fibracell reed I have bought, once you try them, you won't go back
