Subj: Re: [kl] Survey - What brand of reeds do you use?
Date: Thu, 19 Jun 2003 21:20:12 -0400

Primary setup for "legit" work: Marcellus M13 and M. Lurie Premium, #4.
Backup is a Vandoren 5RV Lyre.
(instruments are R-13s, Rovner ligature)

Dance band setup: Pomerico "Bright" (their description, not my value
judgement) Crystal, M. Lurie #3 (not premium) or whatever reed floats
through the mill that plays okay on a wide-open mp like this. Using an old
Luyben ligature. Horn is an old Noblet I started out on.
