I have been trying a Jody jazz hr* 6* tenor mpc for a little while and it plays well but it tends to sound brighter than I would like. I have tried many styles and strenghts of reeds on it. Rico royal 3 seems to work well. maybe I should go to 3.5 to get it darker? I also have tried vandoren blue box. I am thinking that 3.5 royal might be the limit of strenght that I could play on that mpc? i was hoping to be slightly brighter than a otto link tone edge rubber which it is but I would like it to be somewhat darker than how I am sounding now. I am hoping I can fix this with reeds and not having to buy a larger tip opening.
