Fibracell is the reed mother nature would make if she had access to space age materials. Fibracell material is a sophisticated composite of aerospace materials designed to exactly duplicate the way nature constructs cane reed. Very stiff but sound absorbing Kevlar fibers are suspended in a lightweight resin formulation.

Fibracell composite reed material is the result of years of research and development, conceptualizing and augmenting state-of-the-art materials. The result is a composite material, which has characteristics comparable to natural cane reed in the following respects:

  • Stiffness
  • Specific Gravity
  • Decay Factor
  • Overtones or "Voice"
  • Stiffness-to-weight ratio
  • Color and appearance

It is the unique combination of the above properties that allows the natural cane reed to vibrate with a rich tonal quality. These qualities are emulated in Fibracell's unique composite structure with the additional features of strength, long lasting durability and a consistency of quality not found in nature.

With Fibracell Reeds you get:

  • The same "woody" tone as cane but with better sound projection
  • A reed that is great for doublers because it does not require soaking
  • A reed that is playable in all weather conditions, not affected by heat or humidity
  • A reed that doesn't swell, warp or soften when wet
  • A reed that lasts up to six times longer than cane with no unplayable reeds, making it less expensive to use than cane
  • Quick response for better articulation, excellent pitch stability and intonation in all ranges, even for the clarinet
  • Brilliant overtones for a full, vibrant, resonant tone
  • A reed with the same weight and stiffness as cane - cane floats and so does Fibracell
  • A reed that keeps its shape and retains resiliency longer than cane
  • Outstanding durability, due to a bonded film on the bottom that helps resist tip splitting
