Subject: [kl] Survey - What brand of reeds do you use?

I know we have been through this before, but I thought it would be
interesting and instructive to see what people are playing on these

Several new brands of reeds are on the market. Some established brands
seem to have taken a dip in quality, some have seemed to improve. So -
what reeds are YOU using these days?

Also what reeds do you recommend for young (middle school) students.

superb mouthpieces and repairs.

BTW - here's my selection. For the past few months I have been using
Zondas and Gonzales reeds. Before that I was using Vandoren V 12's. I
did have some "regular" Vandorens that worked well for me when I
couldn't get the V 12's to play satisfactorily.

I almost always wind up with a 3 1/2 strength no matter what the brand
except for Mitchell Lurie, where I vacillated between 5's (too soft) and
5 1/2's (too stiff).
