The Gonzalez FOF have proved popular with professional and advanced players. With an American cut they have a thickish tip and actually a thick heart as well. Because of this design they give a strong, rich, dark sound but do come up feeling harder than you may be used to.
Advice is to come down 1/2 a strength on what you expect. The American cut is more suited to mouthpieces with a straight flat finish on the lay. For example the Vandoren M30, BD5, Rico Reserve X5 etc.
For those experimenting the Vandoren equivalent to FOF = Rue L’Epic/V21

I like this brand which seems to suit my Backun Vocalise G mouthpiece. Some of the reeds were too soft so I think I will go back to 2.5 next time (although when I bought 2.5 previously some were too hard... I feel like Goldilocks.)
Excellent quality reeds recommended by clarinet teacher, fantastic sound and well worth the extra.
they are usually very consistent
zeer goede kwaliteit rieten
So far the Gonzalez reeds are working out fine.
I haven't used the product long enough to make a comment
So far, the reeds seem very consistent but we haven't had them long enough (6 days) to thoroughly test them.
I tried them because of he intermediate strength. OK so far.
We usually buy reeds for both clarinet and saxophone Dawkes has a wide range of very good quality and meet my expectation.
Definitely an improvement on my previous reeds used.
