The Frederick L. Hemke reeds in strength 3.5 feature a thinner tip and shorter vamp for easy response combined with a medium spine thickness for a warm sound with good resistance.
Frederick L. Hemke reeds, part of the Rico family of reeds, provide the dark tone favored by many classical and traditional jazz saxophonists. The design is especially well-suited to traditional, round-chambered mouthpieces.

Rico's state-of-the-art reed research center in Southern California employs a collaboration of agronomists, scientists, and musicians to produce top-quality reeds, including Rico Reserve premium reeds for clarinet and saxophone.
