ABOUT BENZ REEDS
Benz Reeds represent the absolute highest quality, precisely crafted reeds available for woodwind instruments today. Swiss craftsmanship is legendary, and Benz-Reeds carry this tradition into the previously neglected world of woodwind instruments with true style. Each Benz reed is meticulously crafted from premium Arundo Donax tubing. The properties of this tube are specially analyzed in a newly developed process, whereby each individual blade is processed separately depending on tension and resonance. This secret profiling process makes Benz-Reeds sound excellent. They are balanced, easy to play in all pitches and suitable for all styles of music. Now you can really focus on your game! Benz reeds are the result of the work of experienced clarinetist Andreas Benz. During his classical training in a Swiss theater in the late 1970s, Benz simultaneously received lessons in the care and production of reeds from various professional solo clarinetists in the theater. He realized that this was an art in itself and had a lot of practice and practical experience in making sheets in the theater. During this time, Benz also became interested in the saxophone and quickly learned the instrument from a professional saxophonist. Benz played both saxophone and clarinet in a number of bands and orchestras over the next two decades, covering classical, folk, jazz, blues and rock styles. During this time, Benz increasingly devoted more time to the material processing of reeds than to the actual playing, as the reeds available on the market at the time were not of the best quality and often did not function properly. In his own words: "Every clarinet player and saxophonist knows the problem. Sometimes the reeds play well, sometimes they squeak, and most of the time you're annoyed at not being able to produce a clear sound." Benz decided to finally address this problem by founding Benz-Reeds in the late 1990s. "My design allows the tension of the specially selected Arundo Donax reed to be analyzed and processed accordingly. These precise reeds are playable in all pitches." Currently, there is no other method of making reeds that is so meticulous, and no other reed comes close to a Benz reed.
