Frederick L. Hemke Saxophone Reeds are hand selected for the saxophonist who desires the ultimate in tonal elegance, response and flexibility. Hemke Saxophone Reeds are made from premium cane for consistent response and playability to benefit all levels of musicians from the beginner to the seasoned professional. A shorter vamp and thinner tip provides the dark tone and quick response favored by many traditional jazz saxophonists. The Hemke Reeds design is particularly well-suited to round-chambered mouthpieces. French filed for freedom of response, especially in the low register, Hemke Reeds make soft attacks easier. Box of 5 reeds.
