In my constant search for a good doubling setup for clarinet, i.e. lower resistance than a classical clarinetist would want, I am thinking about trying a wider tip opening piece with softer reed combination. Has anybody tried the Rico Royal A7 with this purpose in mind? My horn is a '56 Selmer Centered Tone. I have tried the search function but to no avail. Any experiences or advice would be appreciated.

I know it would be an inexpensive investment to try out, but it still doesn't hurt to ask. :mrgreen:

OK for dixieland, Klezmer, and big band. Works for some pit work if the music has those styles in it. Good for wailing over a loud group. Not so good for trying to sound legit (section blending and classic clarinet tone).
Thanks Mojo. I am not trying to sound legit so it may work. What can I expect in terms of brightness? Would it be too bright?
