Very good!
Jorasiro, 27.10.2019
I had never played with a synthetic reed before, and I have to say that it plays really good. The sound is darker than the cane reeds. I will use it to practice everyday. I think I still prefer the cane reeds though, the vibration and feeling is different and I like it better.

Nothing beats cane!
Nikolaos C., 24.09.2019
I tried them twice. The first time I bought a 2 1/2 like the Vandoren V16 I play but it was thin compared to what I was used to. Their body is also thinner than cane reeds, you need to tight your ligature more and sometimes it can damage your ligature. The worst thing was that the mouthpiece cap pressed against it because of it and the reed got bent and it wouldn't become straight again. On the second one I bought I was more careful. I bought a 2 3/4 and it was thick enough. I also took it off every time I played so it wouldn't bend by the cap. After a month of use cracks started forming and now I just keep it as a backup in case of emergency. Its sound compared to other plastic reeds I tried is much better but it still has too much mid frequencies. It's too sharp and it hurts your lips. Also, it's not that responsive and squeaking happens easily. You'll be better off buying cane reeds a bit thicker than you need and sanding them down to perfection. I find it too expensive for what it has to offer.

Good quality reed
Danail, 14.08.2019
After so many years playing a cane reed I have decided to try synthetic reeds. I was playing Vandoren Java 3. I ordered two reeds. The Fiberreed Onyx size M and also Legere - 2,5. Both are easy blowing but the Legere plays the Low range and the altissimo range with a bit more resistance. The size M for the Onyx I found right for me but the 2,5 Legere is a bit harder. It has quite a dark sound. If you need to push it it won’t give you enough power to cut through the band sound for a solo. It is perfect if you have to play in a band. Fiberreed Onyx fits better to my way of playing. I tested the reeds with Vandoren V16 and Meyer mouthpieces.

As good as a cane reed
Steve the Sax, 01.12.2018
I'm struggling to detect any difference in the sound quality between this and a cane reed. Only downsides I've found so far are that the reed tends to get rather wet, as it doesn't absorb moisture in the way that cane does. And, being clear plastic, it's quite tricky to get it lined up on the mouthpiece!
