About the inventor
Harry Hartmann plays saxophone since 1976. He obtained a Master’s Degree in music at the University for Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart/Germany with Professor Bernd Konrad. He has been a professional musician since 1982 and has been teaching privately at music schools focusing on jazz, latin and classical music.
“As a musician, I have tried to fulfil all the requirements of an innovative reed. In order to take into account your wishes and suggestions I would be happy if you could share your experiences of Fiberreed with me. Thank you for your cooperation.”
Harry Hartmann’s Fiberreed made from HFC unites superior sound and performance qualities with twenty to thirty times the durability of a traditional cane reed. And, most importantly, every reed performs to the same high specifications. Even years from now, your new Fiberreed will perform with the exact same excellence that you experience today. And, there is no need for warming up as there is with cane reeds. With Fiberreed you will get a full response from the very first moment.
A material with excellent sound qualities was created through the unification of high-tech materials and artistic sensibility. Its name: Hollow Fiber Foamresin Compound (HFC).
HFC replaces the feeding channels of cane with hollow fibers and the cellular structure with a foaming resin. This combination, together with a balanced relation in proportion to longitudinal to lateral stiffness, enables sound qualities which not only come close to Arundo Donax cane, but actually exceed it in many aspects, making it unlike other synthetic materials.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 3 MODELS
New Hemp Fiberreed
80% organic material for a darker, earthly sound. Same great benefits as our Carbon and Natural Fiberreeds.
Natural and Natural Classic Fiberreed
This Fiberreed is totally made out of the white hollow fiber foam resin compound which copies the structure of the natural cane (Arundo Donax). The Natural Classic Fiberreed consists of the same material like the Natural Fiberreed. It has a steeper cut sounding warmer and darker than the Natural Fiberreed.
It suits perfect for a vintage jazz sound or Classic mouthpieces like the Selmer C*.
Carbon and Carbon Classic Fiberreed
The Carbon Fiberreed material has high modulus carbon fibers as every second layer. The overtones are richer and the sound spectrum is bigger compared to the Natural Fiberreed. The low register is fat, the high notes are screaming having a convincing presence.
The differences betwenn the Carbon Classic Fiberreed and the Carbon Fiberreed are the same as with Natural and Natural Classic Fiberreed.The Carbon Classic Fiberreed has a steeper cut sounding warmer and darker the Carbon Fiberreed is brighter and shining.
