I think we need to keep in mind that when I did that, I was a junior in high school. I'm recounting the experience as I remember it. I am definitely a much better player now than I was then, and I suspect the difference would be more apparent to me now. There probably is a fairly visible difference between the tenor and bass reeds, but I just didn't really care enough about it. It worked, I guess.Roger Aldridge said:Dirty,
I find this to be really interesting.
It's my understanding -- based on conversations with Guy Legere -- that Legere regular-cut reeds are based on Vandoren Traditional. I see a noticable difference between Legere tenor and bass clarinet reeds. The tenor reed has a significantly greater amount of "wood" in the heart than the bass clarinet reed. It's easy to see this difference as well as by touch.
I'm curious if this difference can be seen as easily between Vandoren Traditional tenor and bass clarinet reeds.
