Gonzalez Bass Clarinet Reeds
|Content||Alexander Reeds designed this line of reeds to address the specific needs of classical woodwind players or jazz players wanting a bit more resistance and darkness in their set up than our other models offer.
A wide palette of expression, and classically grounded performance characteristics...those that produce a warm, dynamically balanced, sonorously beautiful tone.
With testing feedback from some top professional classical clarinetists and saxophonists, we arrived at the final design of This new reed line christened Classique went into production for all models and Classique is now being used not only by classical and concert performers, but any others looking for a darker tone which this reed's harder tip and heart produce.
In Classique, we believe we have achieved our goal of capturing the essence of that great traditional design, but with improvements developed to enhance dynamic response, clarity and register balance, which we feel produces a singing tonal quality that is definitely classical in its conception.
It should also be noted that a growing number of jazz players seem to enjoy Classique's response these days as well.||The Buffet Muncy barrel was more than 10 years in the making. Designed by Philip Muncy for Buffet Crampon in France, this barrel is hand finished and play tested by Philip Muncy. Each barrel is made from the most select unstained grenadilla woods. Every barrel features silver plated rings. This reversed taper bore was inspired by the late Hans Moennig and Anthony Gigliotti. Producing a beautiful ringing tone that is responsive and keeps its shape in every dynamic range. This barrel voices astonishingly well and is sure to please those that have enjoyed the best of the Moennig style barrels.||Metal silver plated cap fits most standard metal ligatures including the Buffet silver plated ligature.||Swab, Mouthpiece Brush, Cleaning Brush/Duster, Cork Grease, Key Oil and Plated Finish Polishing Cloth|
