Alto sax reeds on alto clarinet?

2445 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Rojarosguitar
Hello, size-wise alto sax reeds seem to fit the mouthpiece of an alto clarinet. Is something to say against the usage of alto sax reeds?

Just tried Yamaha 5C mouthpiece with 3.5 Fibracell Premium artificial reed. Works very well, so it seems.
Any other recommendations for that MPs reed-wise?

I know that years back David White told me that his alto clarinet mouthpiece was designed to play best with alto sax reeds.

I think over the years there have been many times that I interchanged alto clarinet-alto sax and bass clarinet-tenor sax. If it worked and fit the mouthpiece that is all that really matters.
