Dunno. Maybe some people enjoy sounding like a kazoo. ;-)...the question is then, who is continuing to buy these seemingly useless items!?
I can't get past the 'acceptable' sound of Legere Signatures...which are pretty good (though slippery!!)...to make it a permanent thing.
.. Can't imagine these nasty sounding / behaving synths!
And it IS tempting to be able to skip ALL of that 'stuff' to deal with with cane...but can't seem to quite do it.
I don't dig Blue Box eitherFunny story.....Only reed I have never been able to play comes from dark blue Vandoren boxes. Even the good ones don’t last for me more than a couple of hours. I consider them a complete waste of money.....but most think Vandoren is the best.....go figure!
(Is it me, or is splitting the most likely way for a Rico d'Darrio reed to fail? I never remember reeds routinely splitting at the tip...in the past year I've had many RJS split at the tip...?!)I’m using Legere signature right now. Each one seems to last a few months (practicing and performance). In the world of cane, I have seen the best value in Rico Orange Box....when I rotate through 4 of them, they seem to last a while. I’m not a fan of Rico Jazz Select either.
