Been doing a lot of experimenting with synthetic reeds. First the Fibracell, which played good for a while, but then the film on the underside of the reed started to separate from the reed. Fortunately, someone from Fibracell musta read one of my earlier SOTW posts on the problem (didn't know whether to pull the film off or leave it on) and sent me a replacement. Still blowing fine. I then got a Legere Studio from WWBW after reading some good stuff on it in here. Wished I would have gotten a softer cut on the Legere. I like it, warmer than the Fibracell, but it's sometimes hard to get it started when entering my lower notes I've noticed. Wondering if I should stick with the Studio Cut and move to a softer strength, or give the Legere Signature wack. I understand the Signature #2 is softer than the Studio Cut #2. Gonna buy a box of Ricos tomorrow from WWBW, and the plan was to add a couple synthetics to the order (wanna reach that free delivery threshold), but kinda on the fence on the whole Legere thing. Was also thinking about the Bari Star reed. The Star is supposed to be darker than the regular Bari here,... I assume that means less buzz. Anyway, just was hoping to hear from those who've walked this trail before me. Thanks!
