I have seen these mouthpieces mentioned on this forum quite a bit. I am just curious what reeds people are using on these pieces.

I just got a 6c for tenor, and have tried boxes of Java 3's, Rico Jazz Select 3m, Legere Signature 3.5, and La Voz Medium.

So far the Laz Voz have been the best. I am trying to figure out what reeds to try next. Any suggestions? Found a brand and strength that works really well on these mouthpieces?

Nice, I might have to try some of those next. It has ben a while since I have tried a box (or a tin actually) of Alexander's.

For what it's worth, I found it somewhat affirming to learn, after I'd been using these reeds for a year or so, that James Houlik uses (or at least did for some time) the same reed on his very similar mouthpiece.

That is good to hear. Houlik sounds incredible on his set-up. I just looked up those DC reeds- they have got to be some of the most expensive reeds on the market. Any second choice brands?

Ilike those Gonzalez on my alto set up (RPC mouthpieces). And they are surprisingly inexpensive!
