I've only recently realised that I prefer filed reeds overall. In fact I've only recently understood what the differences were :faceinpalm:

Unfiled reeds speak easier for me, give me more control etc. at the cost of being somewhat lightweight sounding in the lower registers. I thought it'd be interesting to poll what most people prefer here in SOTW. Of course these things change through time, so this is just a snapshot of what people prefer currently.
