Product Information

The Gonzalez RC Bass Clarinet reeds suit a broad range of styles due to their ease of play, including Jazz, Classical, Commercial and any type of Band work. Equally popular with advancing students and professional players the Gonzalez reeds have unrivalled consistency and finishing.

Produced totally naturally in the foothills of the Andes, the Gonzalez company own the worlds largest cane plantation. Typically the cane is dried and matured at least a third longer than their competitors who often rush to push cane through the production process. This time spent maturing in the perfect climate in Argentina ensures the cane eventually produces a reed that is both consistent and full of response and flexibility.

  • Produced in the foothills of the Andes in the perfect climate for cane production.
  • Unrivalled consistency due to natural and extended cane drying process.
  • Regular cut style makes the reeds responsive and clear sounding.
  • Supplied in boxes of 5.
  • Available from strength 1.5 upwards.

First impressions are good. Haven't had the chance to try fully yet.

I struggled for years trying to find bass clarinet reeds that were both flexible enough to produce a big range of colours on the instrument, as well as sturdy and solid enough that they didn’t weaken during the necessary workload that an operatic bass clarinet part can demand (e.g. in a Wagner opera). Since I found Gonzalez bass reeds I haven’t looked back, and I am delighted to continue to endorse them and to recommend them to any bass clarinettist. Like the B flat reeds, they come in 1/4 strengths (I use 2.75 on a Pomerico 2 mouthpiece), which is very helpful, if your normal strength always falls between the usual sizes.
