Hi guys, well I've done it again! Always looking for the perfect synthetic reed, I tried Luis Gasparotto's G-reeds from Argentina. A clear plastic similar to the look of Legere, I have two new ones for anyone who'd like to try them and is willing to pay domestic US postage. Both are 'Model 3' medium bright, with strengths of 3-3.5, and 3.5-4. The 3.5-4 is unplayed. The 3-3.5 was played all of 15 minutes. Both are a bit too hard for me (8* mpc). I thought the 3-3.5 had a bit of a chirpy quality in the midrange. Luis acknowledges that they're working on this for the stiffer strengths- apparently not an issue for the softer strengths. The stiffness is I think, dead-on with most cane, so if you play a 3.5-4, I'll send that to one respondent. If you play 3-3.5, I'll send that to another player. Thanks!

In my opinion there is no comparison.
Legere are far better and worth every cent more.
Low end resistance on G reeds is way to high even in the softer strengths.
Legere tone quality and playability is far superior IM0.

Your opinion is so precious for me since I considered to buy those three bright models to compare just a few weeks ago. It seems that it is better for me to go back to Fibrereed or Legere.
Thanks a lot
