Has anyone tried out many of the Harry Hartmann reeds for bari? My quick story is I’ve been using Fibracell reeds but a couple went dead rather quickly. I bought a couple of replacements and they feel much different. Struggling a bit to play them. Fortunately I have 2 I like. I bought a Hartmann carbon medium and with my Metalite mouthpiece the reed sounds super bright and hard to control. I tried it with my HR Otto Link and it’s absolutely wonderful! It brightens up the Link nicely. Was hoping Hartmann makes something not so bright that I could use with the Metalite mouthpiece. Any thoughts? The classic and hemp versions look like they might be right but they could be bright to. Was hoping someone had first hand knowledge. Thanks.
