The reed price might have been $14 a BOX, which would be real good for a
box of ten, a bit high for a box of five. Even Fibracell reeds are only
$12.75 retail (clarinet). I believe the Series III altos are out on a
limited basis, but I haven't seen one yet. I have been asked about them,
and look forward to comparing them to my Mark VI.

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is too loud.
