The Evolutions are a bit softer than Vandorens. I play on Van and Evo
3.5's. On my mouthpiece, with Vandorens, i have to have the reed set
slightly below the edge of the tip. With the Evolutions, i have to have it
pretty much even. I'm not sure how the stronger strengths compare to
Vandoren strengths.

Some free samples were given away with the most recent issue of
"Clarinet and Saxophone." They were supposed to be of three different
strengths,
but I wouldn't have known this without looking at them - they all (2 1/2, 3,
and
3 1/2) seemed slightly too soft.

For our own past is covered by the currents of action,
But the torment of others remains an experience
Unqualified, unworn by subsequent attrition.
People change, and smile: but the agony remains.
