Anyone tried these reeds?  I usually stick with Vandoren classic (strength 3) and occasionally Pilgerstorfer Dolce but i saw these online and wondered what they would be like.

If you use blue box 3s, try a Woodstone 3.5. They are quite soft for their number in my experience.
I found them OK, but I wore them out very quickly, and for the price they are, I wouldn't use them again. You and your embouchure etc. may be more forgiving though, so do give them a go.
I like playing with new reeds. And mouthpieces. And ligatures. I'm addicted. Help!

Thanks for your reply barry-clari, i think i'll give them a try.

 

I too like trying different reeds, mouthpieces and ligatures.  I spent a very enjoyable afternoon in Howarth's when i was on a short break to London last year, firstly buying a new clarinet after testing different models then trying out different mouthpieces.  I was actually fascinated with all the different coloured boxes of reeds they sell.....  Husband eventually got fed up and wandered off!  :lol:
