Frederick L. Hemke reeds provide the dark tone favored by many classical and traditional jazz saxophonists. The design is especially well-suited to traditional, round-chambered mouthpieces. French filed for freedom of response, especially in the low register, adding clarity to the tone and making soft attacks easier.
Professional-quality reed for classical and jazz applications, shorter vamp for dark tone and balanced, slightly thinner tip for quick response and articulation. Premium grade cane for consistent response and playability, French filed for flexibility and fast response.
"Are pitched as being suitable for both classical and jazz work these reeds. Having said that they play rather brighter than I, personally, had expected for a reed cut for classical work. In other respects these seem quite similar to Vandoren ‘blue box’ clean tone and controllability seem to be the main features." Jules@sax.co.uk
