  • Forestone reeds for all saxophones and clarinets come in 1/2 strengths from 1 - 5.
  • They have the functional properties of cane but are consistent, do not degrade with use, and are not subject to fluctuations in temperature, humidity, altitude or other factors.
  • Forestone reeds are made from a special composite material: a mixture of polypropylene resin and cellulose wood fiber, more than 50 percent of which is bamboo.
  • This material is odorless, non-toxic, and recyclable, and when formed into a single reed, possesses exceptional sound, resilience, and flexibility.

I play Vandoren / Legere 3 reeds on my Bass Clarinet, so I ordered a Forestone F3 to try. It was way too soft. I exchanged it for a 3.5, which is still a bit softer than the Legere. I just ordered an F4 to see how that plays. For the Tenor Sax reed, I would recommend moving up at least a full number in hardness from what you usually use, e.g. if you play a Vandoren 3, order a Forestone 4. This is similar to my experience with the Forestone Bb clarinet reeds -- I usually play on a 3.5, but I ordered a Forestone 4.5 and it is a bit softer than I would like, so I've ordered a 5 to try. So, for smaller reeds, you may want to move order 1.5 harder. This is consistent with what other reviewers have recommended, and it is my experience as well.

Having said all of that, these reeds are really nice! They sound full and clear, without any buzz. I'm going to give it 4 stars because it really plays well, but you have to trust me and order one that is a labeled a lot harder than you usually use (and that will cost it a star).

I have tried several other synthetic reeds and did not like them at all. This one played well the first time I tried it. The #3 strength is around a Rico Jazz Select 3S and right around a Java 3 (maybe a heavy 2 1/2). Definately will keep some around and I am a cane guy.

You just can't beat these reeds for pit work. They always respond, great sound, and they last a long time.
