Manufacturer: Forestone

Forestone is the result of 30-year quest to bring single reed playing into the modern age, no longer dependent on that fickle piece of wood that is the source of so much worry and frustration for the vast majority of clarinet and saxophone players. We began with extensive scientific research. We looked at the basic structure of single reeds. We measured various profiles. We studied fabrication methods and how those methods affect the finished reed. We used waveform analysis to uncover what constitutes a clear-sounding, resilient and optimally responsive single reed.

Features:

  • The proprietary composite material is a mixture of polypropylene resin and cellulose wood fibre, more than 50 percent of which is bamboo.
  • Unlike cane reeds and other brands of synthetics that are made by machining, Forestone reeds are made by injection molding.
  • Forestone reeds are perfectly balanced side to side and front to back. The vamp is smooth and the underside is perfectly flat. The profile is standard but adapted in subtle ways to produce optimal sound, intonation, response and feel. The thickness of the tip is 0.1 mm right across. Held up to the light, Forestone reeds display the classic upside-down “U-shape″ associated with cane reeds.
  • Forestone reeds tend to maintain their strength / resistance over time. They vibrate well and hold the centre of the sound in a manner similar to that of a good quality cane reed. The basic timbre is robust, clear and strong, with just enough “buzz″ in the sound to ensure good projection and carrying power. Intonation is stable and the reeds are designed to articulate well from the chalemeau to the altissimo.
  • Forestone reeds require no adjustment with knives, blades, sandpaper, reed rush or other traditional methods. One can achieve gratifying results by slightly raising or lowering the reed on the mouthpiece to improve response. Finding the right strength for your mouthpiece and way of playing is the key to success.
