The Fiberreed is an amazing concept! In my experience, the Natural Classic produced a sound somewhere in between a classical and jazz reed with a complex, full sound. The Carbon Classic retained the fullness and complexity of the Natural, but the addition of carbon fiber produced lots of additional edge and maybe a slightly more centered, slightly compact sound. I love the fact that you never need to soak them and that they’ll never warp like cane does! Especially convenient if you double on other instruments!”
