I was dinking around in my room and thought I'd toss this out into the ether... Gentle or Gentile criticisms are welcome, while harsh heavy handed ones are welcome but with a squinty eye and probably associated with a light family curse.

Well, that was just what I needed to hear this morning.
It really hit the spot and cheered me up.
Thanks for posting.

Nice. You may want to try dropping your jaw open while keeping your top teeth on the mouthpiece. Good way to get a big breath and avoid keeping constant pressure on the reed & your lip. Takes some practice but becomes second nature after a while. Try it. Good luck.

So only Gentle or Gentile criticisms are sought?

What, no Jewish opinions needed?

Or were you maybe seeking genteel criticisms? :mrgreen::whistle::bluewink:

Good man, thanks for sticking your neck out and sharing.

I will +1 Swaman’s good advice, that is worth exploring to open up the sound a bit more.

Also, even though I’ve never been one of the “zomg harder reeds are kewler” brigade, it sounds to me like your reed may be just a tad under. Could be just me of course, and experimenting a bit with Swaman’s jaw suggestion may change that. What gear are you using, particularly in the mp and reed department?
