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

  • American cut suits mouthpieces with American facing curve.
  • Thicker tip and thick heart.
  • Rich, dark sound.
  • Half a strength harder than Vandoren Rue Lepic and Blue Box.
  • Supplied in pack of 10.

So far, the reeds seem very consistent but we haven't had them long enough (6 days) to thoroughly test them.

As a complete newbie clarinet player, having tried Rico and Vandoren reeds, I was over the moon when the first two Gonzalez 2.5 reeds out of the box gave me a rich and consistent tone without any squeals and squeaks that I have become accustomed to expect at my present skill level. Absolute magic. Wish you could have seen the "extended chin" smile. They work for me !!!
