Hey guys. Im playing a good amount of intermediate level jazz in combos and big bands. I play alto and my setup now is a meyer 5 mouthpiece with 2.5 java reeds and a standard rover lig . Im really not feeling like I'm getting nearly the response and power that i want...also....can someone help me with a reed case? I'm just using the crappy plastic vandoren cases and I'm putting the reeds back in wet which is causing issues, but i don't have the time to dry/air out reeds after i play every time. Advice is much appreciated!
