How about the human factor, i.e. fleshy vs. thin lips, position of teeth,
control of lip pressure? Are there general rules as well? I prefer softer
reeds and longer, more open facings. They give me better control of my
sound. I suspect my preference is based essentially on embouchure which in
turn depends on individual anatomic features.
