The Gonzalez RC reed has a classic French Filed cut. This provides the reeds with a clarity of tone and softness in the lower register. The RC reeds suit a broad range of styles due to their ease of play, including ABRSM Grades, Jazz, Commercial and Concert Band.
Gonzalez reeds are produced and grown in the foothills of the Andes in Argentina. The soil is some of the most fertile in the world and due to the climate and wind this is a perfect region for producing reeds.
Gonzalez use traditional methods to harvest the cane and it is carefully and slowly dried and prepared for use. This extra time allows the internal fibres of the cane to mature properly and ensures a consistend and long lasting reed.
- Very flexible with immediate tonal production.
- Produced in the foothills of the Andes.
- Carefully aged and dried cane for amazing consistency.
- Supplied in pack of 10 reeds.
- Strengths available from 1.5 to 4

all good thanks
I have used Gonzales for the past 5 years for both classical and jazz performance with a lot of success. I have been particularly impressed by the range of tone that I have been able to play with, as well as being able to hit harmonics with relative ease. Would highly recommend these reads.
I got fed up with the inconsistency of the reeds I was using and after changing brands several times I tried Gonzalez following a recommendation. Gonzalez reeds are not only excellent to play, they are very very consistent out of the box. I now use them on tenor and alto and I can honestly say I've never had a bad reed out of a tenor or alto box.
these reeds are very ell priced, consistent, well manufactured and sound great to. would recommend to anyone for the price!
