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

Nicht Fisch und nicht Fleisch

SJQ, 05.08.2011
Diese Reeds sollen den Spagat zwischen Haltbarkeit und Sound meistern. Leider ist das Ergebnis nichts Ganzes und nichts Halbes. Der Sound ist duerftig, selbst reine Kunststoffreeds (wie z.B. Legere) klingen besser. Und wenn man etwas mit Plastik ueberzieht, so dass es nicht mehr nachzubearbeiten ist, sollte man besonders sorgfaeltig die Grundlage auswaehlen. Asymmetrische Anschnitte darf es bei so einem Blatt nicht geben.

Ich wuerde zu Holz ODER Plastik raten, nicht beides in einem versuchen. Lieber Legere, Fiberreed & Co testen, wenn's wirklich Kunststoff sein soll.
