The search for a better reed
As every reed player knows reeds can be the most infuriating part of playing. Cane is a natural product & as such it is subject to seasonal changes as well as being subject to the environment.For most players however cane still provides the best tone & flexibility.
Enter the Forestone Hybrid Reed
Forestone reeds are made in japan & are a Hybrid made up of a combination of a synthetic resin & either cane or black bamboo. The result is a longer lasting consistent reed that still has the warmth & tonal response of a natural reed.
Forestone reeds come in the two styles
Hinoki -is a cane synthetic hybrid & considered ideal for those wanting a warmer tone.
Black Bamboo – Bamboo hybrid considered ideal for those wanting a more focused sound.
