    I currently play on a Meyer New York anniversary 6m with 3 Vandoren ZZ reeds. I play lead alto in a few bands and would like to be able to project when needed. Currently my ZZ’s allow me to do this, but the sound I get is too harsh and edgy, and the reeds are too hard and make playing quite and...

    Hello. I've been on the market for some good classical reeds to replace my Vandoren V21s(On tenor and alto), and I stumbled upon these: I've tried to look for information on these but it's been hard to find, seems like it's kind of rare, maybe even discontinued. Are these reeds for classical...

    So, I’m experimenting with Legeres right now. I ordered a strength 3.5 Legere Signature alto saxophone reed online. When it arrived, I experimented with it for a few days, and came to the conclusion that it was too soft for me. It had a lot of buzz, and was very free-blowing. I was about to...

    Rico 1 + Berg + Hot sauce = Hot licks!! More reed shenanigans! Gotta stay entertained somehow... ...so I've got a whole box of Rico 1s and Vandoren Blue Box 5s from this and another video... I'm planning to make some more fun videos with these ridiculously hard and soft reeds, let me know if...

    Hey sax folk! I just made this video just for giggles, but I would love to hear your opinions on which sounded better. I thought this would be fun (and a little silly) to try, because it seems that very few players will play anything lighter than a #2, and very few players go stiffer than a #4...

    Recently I bought what at first I thought to be the holy grail of reeds... It was a box of (5) Vandoren Java Red 2.5s, and first thing I did was test the box to see which ones were good and which ones were not etc... To my shock it seemed the entire box played good...like not one reed did I...

    Hi all, (Quick introductory note: this is my first SOTW Forum post in many years after a long break from the horn. It's good to be back and great to be playing again!) I am switching back to cane after much experimentation with (and money spent on) synthetic reeds. One of the brands that I am...

    Has anyone tried both of these on bass clarinet? If so, could you tell me how they compare? I'm currently playing on a tenor sax Legere Signature 2.75 (that I've been playing since March) and I'm looking to get a backup. I've tried a number of different types of cane reeds on bass clarinet...

    seems to be a reoccurring thought in my head these days... does anyone have experience here making sax reeds by hand? would love to give it a go. i know clarinet, english horn, and oboe nuts make them often... but what about us saxes?

    So I'm an intermediate sax player and I recently got a P Mauriat Le Bravo 200 Tenor and I've been loving it! I decided to try out the reed that it comes with and I actually ended up loving it for getting more of a centered sound (though it is a bit squeaky sometimes). Does anyone know what...

    Hello, fellow saxmasters. I'm an intermediate-level player looking for tips on how to mark, organize and rotate my reeds. I figure, "Who best to ask, but the pros?" I've never really had a system, other than to just keep three or four reeds in each case, and the rest at home, in a drawer...

    Hi, friends. I've been using fiberglas reeds for many years, and I am njust now switcing to cane, so I am trying to remember how it was before. I never used to soak my reeds before using them, but just licked them and played them till they got moist. Now I am soaking them in a cup of hot tap...
