Perfect for Jazz, Rock, and Pop Playing!
The Harry Hartmann Carbon Series Fiberreeds use high-tech carbon fiber with hollow connecting fiber. The interweaving of the different fibers results in a very true feeling reed. The weave of the fibers is designed to emulate natural cane in ways that no other synthetic reed can. The Carbon fiberreeds reproduce the tendencies of natural cane to be very strong towards the outside (the bark) and more resonant yet not soft at the heart, while being very flexible at the vamp.
The result is a very full sound with direct response and a beaming upper register. The top choice of pop and jazz musicians.
- Lasts 20-30 times longer than cane reeds
- Play immediately, no soaking or break-in period
- Extremely resistant to warping and splitting
- Perfectly consistent
- Never dries out
- Easy to clean, resulting in a hygienic and odorless reed even after months of play

Comments about Harry Hartmann Carbon Fiberreed Baritone Saxophone Reed:
I am on my second Hartmann carbon fiber reed for my Evette-Schaeffer baritone sax. I like it. The other synthetic reeds I have tried seem to be a bit buzzy (lacking high end overtones) in the mid range. The upper and lower notes have more sound penetration in the din of megawatt guitars in a blues jam. The Fiberreed medium is best for me. I am not a professional but jam a lot. I appreciate the reed being always ready to go without having to soak or warm it up. The price may be high for a reed, but not having to deal with the unpredictableness and preparation of cane, and the much longer life make it way more preferable.
