Box of 10 Gonzalez German Bb Clarinet Reeds, Strength 3.5, brand new as pictured.
The Gonzalez German Cut reeds have been specially designed to suit the german style mouthpieces. These reeds are made on a segment of 3.4mm. Rectified to 3.0 mm. this leaves the scraping in the most vibrant area of the reed and produces a very brilliant sound. Its shallow shoulders have a closed half moon shape. This helps to maintain the tuning despite being an extremely flexible and spontaneous cane.
I lived in a dry high altitude city for 3 years. I found that many reeds played well 60% of the time, but none of the reeds I played V21, Rue LePic, FOF played all of the time. These German Gonzales were not only my favorite reed on Eb, but they played when other Bb reeds would not. Not an ideal strength - 3.75 is what I like - but when all else failed, they delivered. The 3.75 play well, but these reeds are a clarinet spare tire.
