My long experience with Alexanders and other reeds is they will suit some pieces ( and players) and not others where I also think a lot of the chirping criticism comes from. They work great for me on my Morgan alto pieces and I believe they had some input into design. They also work really well on my Selmer soprano pieces.
I can only get them to work very rarely on my Lamberson baritone pieces which work very well with Ricos and not at all on my V16 tenor piece which works best with Javas.
I've got many tins of Alexander bari and tenor reeds which I'm sure with the right piece will play.

Superials totally smoke on my vintage HR tenor piece: they're a rich man's Hemke and I wish I could afford 'em!

Good reeds, but no noticeable increase in percentage of playable reeds per box. The price tag isn't justified IMO.

They play a lot like the older Rico Royals.
