So, I'm still kind of tweaking what kind of setup to go with on my soprano. I've been finding that I like the JJ DV 7* the best. However, doing a few recordings I find that it is a tad too bright. I've been using V16 exclusively on it. I found that I had an unopened box of Rico Royal 2-1/2's so I tried one. As luck would have it, the first reed played really nice. The excessive brightness on the high notes toned way down. I'm thinking now that maybe V16's are not the right choice for a metal piece on Soprano.
