Alto sax reeds on alto clarinet?

2423 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?

the alt and bass clarinet both can use saxophone alt and tenor, as much as a Bass saxophone can use a contra alt clarinet reed.

The difference is mostly in the length of the vamp.
