Plasticover reed number 4

Mark477, 06.12.2016
I have literally used plasticover reeds for decades. I keep coming back to them because they last. The sound is good, obviously, I like the slightly reedier, high tones coming off the harder surface, did I mention that they last? Its a combination of strength from the coating and the covering of the bamboo with some kind of soft coating so your spit doesn't go in, become soggy and when not used for a while therefore dries and hardens and, in so doing, make the reed "stale".
The plastic coating tries to prevent that.
The only drawback is when the coating wears out, depending on frequency of use, it chips away and then the moisture goes in the uncovered parts of the reed. However I still use them for dozens of gigs, until they are too difficult to tune.
I normally use 3.5 but wanted to try a harder version because sometimes the reed closes when using a smaller tip opening. I'm happy with the slight strength increase, it makes it a tiny bit firmer.

– Assumed from Rico Tenor Sax Plasticover 2

Not fish and not meat

SJQ, 05.08.2011
These reeds will master the balancing act between durability and sound. Unfortunately, the result is nothing whole and nothing. The sound is poor, even pure plastic reeds (like Legere) sound better. And if you put something with plastic over, so that it is no longer post-work, one should carefully select the basis. Asymmetrical cuts may not occur with such a blade.

I would advise to wood or plastic, do not try both in one. Dear Legere, Fiberreed & Co test, if it is really plastic.
