well then the tip of the reed doesnt meet with the tip of the mouthpiece
Don't want to start a beginner's forum thread here about where to position the reed on the mouthpiece, but I use Gonzalez reeds on a Meyer sop piece, a Selmer S80 alto piece and on tenor at different times for different reasons a Selmer Soloist, a Brilhart Personaline, the original Mauriat piece and a DM Sharkbite metal. Guess what.......the Gonzalez reeds don't fit any of them perfectly
, and to be honest I wouldn't expect them to. The one they best match the tip contour on is the vintage Brilhart tenor, strangely, and the worst is the DM metal not surprisingly.
On each mouthpiece I position the reed with just a small amount of the tip curve showing, maybe ½mm, when I press the reed against the tip with my thumb and they all play beautifully when set like this, but I use Francois Louis Ligs which might also be something to do with it.
