Description

Gonzalez Saxophone Reeds are precision made and have become recognized for their outstanding quality. Sound, response and consistency result from the highest quality cane and strictest quality control in the industry. The cane used in Gonzalez Reeds is organically grown with no artificial pesticides or agrochemicals.

The Gonzalez RC Alto saxophone reeds have a classic, French style filing. These reeds are made on a segment of 3.6mm. Rectified to 3.2 mm. this leaves the scraping in the most vibrant area of the reed and produces a very brilliant sound

The material is stored to age for at least 2 years before its manufacture. Its shallow shoulders have a closed half moon shape. This helps to maintain the tuning despite being an extremely flexible and spontaneous cane.
