Okay so the other day i bought some reeds and they were 3.5's which i thought was what i used but after i had opened them i realized that they were a half a size too big. Is there any way i can use them? it is really hard to play with them. i am a high schooler that has been playing for 6 years and this has never happened to me. Btw they are alto sax vandorens if that helps.
