I'm now using Vandoren Java 3 for my soprano and would like to try Alexander Superial DC with the same or similar thickness. Which number of Alexander reed should I choose?

alto or tenor? I find that on tenor there's not much difference but on alto......I use Vandoren V16 2 and they compare to a 2,5 almost 3 DC

He wrote "soprano."

I like Java #2 on my sop, but was recently gifted several boxes of Alexanders in #2 and #2 1/2 (I recall they were Superials and DC cuts).

Because I adjust all reeds regardless of strength, brand, or cut, I found that I could adjust the Alexanders just fine - brought them right into the way I like reeds to play.

So, if it were me buying new Alexanders, I'd stick with my preferred strength (#2) and make them play for me. DAVE
