VanDoren Java vs. Rico Royal. Who has played both of these tenor reeds (at 2.5) and which do you like best? Yes, I know I should be asking more such as on which mouthpiece and for what type to music but I am just trying to gather a little data before ordering. Don't want to get technical at all. One reed comparison chart shows the Royal 2.5 as a little harder than the Java which would be fine. I've tried the Royal 2 (too soft) and the Royal (3, sounds nice, but hard to get going). Java works pretty well. Comments?
