The best sound I know
Belgian alto player, 08.12.2020
In fact it is the only read i can play on. I try now and then something else but I always come back to this one. It is the warmest reed I know, without loosing freshness. Unfortunately they usually don't last that long but to me they have the best sound.

In Ordnung
Jochen aus P., 23.06.2012
Auf der Suche nach 'meinem' Sound habe ich mich durch eine Vielzahl verschiedener Blätter durchgetestet, aber so wie Hemke hat mich bisher keines überzeugt und ich bin dabei hängen geblieben.

Zunächst sind Hemke und La Voz gewissermaßen fast Geschwister. Beide haben einen einzigartig langen Ausstich und dafür einen kürzeren Schaft. Das heißt, dass man die Blattschraube vergleichsweise tief ansetzen muss, da man sonst das Blatt 'abwürgt' und einen dumpfen Klang erhält. Hemke und La Voz sind ganz oben auf meiner Favoritenliste, aber trotz aller Ähnlichkeiten gibt es doch Unterschiede. Während La Voz unfiled sind, sind die Hemke filed. Ich tue mir grundsätzlich auf filed Blättern leichter. La Voz haben ein ausgeprägteres Herz und die Hemke eine gleichmäßige, sehr dünne und lange Spitze. Klanglich sind die Hemke wesentlich dunkler und voller und ich habe bisher nichts vergleichbares gefunden.

Die Ansprache ist in allen Registern ein Traum und man kann auf dem Blatt soft und auch richtig laut spielen. Ich habe das Gefühl, dass ich alle meine Luft losbekommen kann und das Blatt dann zwar einen infernalischen Lärm verursacht, aber es klingt immer noch sauber und gut. Andere Blätter verkraften nicht so viel Dampf und machen zu oder quietschen.
Wichtig ist außerdem ein lockerer Ansatz, gibt man zuviel Druck neigt das Blatt zum Quietschen.
Die Haltbarkeit ist ebenfalls recht gut.

Ich spiele auf einem Rico Metalite M7 und habe es auch auf dem Graftonite B5 getestet. Ich meine aber, dass sich der schönste Klang auf Mundstücken mit ausgeprägtem Baffle oder Stufe einstellt. Die Kombination aus Obertönen und dunklem Sound gefällt mir sehr gut.
Wer sich den Sound mal bei einem Profi anhören möchte, wird auf Youtube bei Aaron Bing oder natürlich Kenny G fündig - man kann klanglich wirklich sehr nahe an diese Beispiele rankommen.

Très bien pour bon bec Guardala
Philippe977, 06.09.2020
J'utilise les anches Hemke uniquement quand je joue mon bec Guardala Post-Bop (bec original). Ce bec est connu pour bien matcher avec ces anches qui ont la particularité d'être bien équilibrées et de tempérer la brillance de celui-ci. Je pense qu'elles peuvent être utilisées sur d'autres becs avec succès pour ceux ou celles qui recherchent une sonorité un peu mate mais qui demeure riche en harmoniques. Ces anches me semblent avoir une durée de vie plus longues que certaines anches de jazz mais la différence de consistance qui peut apparaître d'une anche à l'autre (sonorité ou résistance) ne me permet pas de leur attribuer une note maximale.

Produit de tres bonne qualité.
Benjamin717, 22.06.2011
Je viens de tester cette anche neuve, je la trouve excellente. D'abord elle est assez rigide et legere pour etre resistante c'est a dire qu'elle permet de bien tenir le son.
Je trouve l'émission et la tenu de la note dans les aigus plus facile qu'avec d'autres anches (attention je suis amateur et mon saxo est nouveau donc ca peut changer).
Le son sort donc facilement avec du grain et meme avec un faible débit d'air.
Idéal pour travailler la justesse !
A mon sens une tres tres bonne anche.
