thx for the recommendation on fiberreeds, they’re great.
i held off buying for a couple years cuz normal plastic reeds really suck; i play vandoren cane
these fiberreeds are great, each has a very unique sound, which is terrificm eg muted vs bright
super since no need to take reed off mp and put in mouth before playing
many thx johnny
im loving the hemp premium best so far… and not just cuz i live in colorado lolFebruary 26, 2022 at 12:28 pm #109689

glad you also are enjoying them….I discovered them several years ago and have been playing em ever since. I also played Vandorens for many year prior.
Hemp was one of my faves until they came out with the Onyx and then the Copper…they have several good ones to choose from these days.March 2, 2022 at 9:16 am #109836RockinRobinParticipant
I like the Onyx reeds and sometime the copper. Right now I have a soft onyx reed in my fatboy mouthpiece

I been playing my fatboy for the last couple tunes Im working on….it’s got a nice big tone but my intonation isn’t quite as good as my other mp’s
I’ve always felt that with the fatboy…maybe still do cause I don’t spend enough time with it….that’s my only complaint with it.March 5, 2022 at 1:42 pm #109888
they are game-changers.. thx johnny for the heads-up. i was telling my teacher grace about them today. they are Shockingly great… and ive been playing for decades. its unfortunate that reeds make such a big difference, it would be nice if they didn’t… so having these is a huge plus. I’m getting a bunch of them.
biggest plus is now i can much more easily hit high and low notes, with full resonant sound w/hemp reed
and mega-plus is no need to put them in your mouth/water before using. no squeaks. taking reed off mp to put in your mouth before playing every time is the biggest pita ever, with these i just pick horn up and blow. i owe you johnny, many thanks. 99% of plastic reeds all suck, but these fiberreeds kick ass, i’ll use these from now on 🙂March 15, 2022 at 11:38 am #110059

these reeds made a substantial improvement in my playing, seriously 15-20%, which is a pleasant surprise. highs and lows are easier, and much better getting close to growling with these. i need to study the altissimo course again; these will helpApril 19, 2022 at 2:37 pm #110654MelParticipant
Love my Carbon Onyx!June 20, 2022 at 8:42 am #111591
i like the copper carbon classic 2.5 best so far, likely need to retest onyx at harder 3.0 strength
