I consider it a hassle to buy reeds because you don't know what you are
getting in the box. Some have written about pre-selecting the reeds and
buying what they like the most. I like to make my own reeds and I find
better results in making them. I know you can work on store bought reeds,
but it makes more since to me for someone just to buy reed blanks and
start from scratch. Besides a box Vandoren cost about $20 from a local
music store and from a catalog about 12 to 15 dollars. I find it much
cheaper to buy about 60 reeds for about $40. In a store $40 only can get
you about 20 reeds and half of them don't work.
