Word. This has worked great since I switched form Vandoren to Rico/LaVoz. They all play relatively similarly for me. I love it!Swingin' Cat said:1) Open box
2) Remove reed
3) Suck on reed for a minute or two
4) Place reed on mouthpiece and play
5) Remove reed from mouthpiece when finished playing
6) Wipe off reed with clean handerkerchief
7) Place reed in LaVoz Reed Guard
8) Place Reed Guard in saxophone case for storage

No. I used to keep that in mind though. Now I try to make all reeds play the same and just adjust myself to the current reed that I'm using; for the sake of consistency.7alphatango said:Please share how you evaluate reeds after they have been broken in. For example, do you number or initial "d" for dark, etc. what do you note on the back of your reeds?
