I recently ordered through Amazon. They were sent from a U.S. company. I
actually had to sand the reeds to soften slightly. The last clarinet reed I
received a few weeks ago was listed as #3 French cut and plays with a more
compact controlled sound. I should order a few more to confirm my latest
results but they're not wearing out fast enough. Anyway between these and
Legere, I haven't used a cane reed in over 6 months.
