GD reeds are made from a cane with a classic French cut. They are made with a thicker blank and a larger tube cane diameter than the standard clarinet reeds. This wider material is normally used in the manufacturing of Alto saxophone reeds, thus, GD reeds have a very deep sound. They are the first Gonzalez reeds with a filed cut. The reed has a longer scrape area and more material in the heel, therefore, it is a more vibrant and lasting reed. All Gonzalez reeds are hand selected and 100% ORGANIC: totally free of pesticides and chemical products. 10 REEDS PER BOX.
