My sax playing friend has been on tenor for about a year. She uses a Vandoren V16 size 2. She has been explaining something to me, but I don't know the answer. She says when she first puts on the reed, it plays fine but after only about ten minutes it feels like the reed is too soft and she is out of control. The only thing I can think of is she needs a harder reed. Does this seem true? I told her I would ask the question on the forum, and she says thank you in advance.
