The Alta Ambipoly reeds are simply amazing! I'm in the middle of a 5 week run of Wicked off Broadway doubling on Bb clarinet, Eb clarinet, soprano sax, and bass clarinet. It is comforting to pick up these instruments and play solos without worrying about soaking reeds first. The ambipoly reeds play more consistently than cane with a beautiful sound, excellent response, and even intonation throughout all registers.
"As an active musician and teacher, I have to travel a lot, which also means that my reeds have to adapt to wherever I go. The ambipoly reed is such a wonderful invention since it is a combination of both cane and plastic. It is such a great solution when my reeds are having a difficult time adjusting to the different climates I travel to. It produces the warm sound that I want and it has the sensation of a cane reed. Highly recommended!"
