I have been playing again in the last month after a 35 (yes that is 35) year layoff and I have a couple of questions.
The first is almost akin to 'how long is a piece of string' but I am going to ask anyway. I am currently using Vandoren Traditional number 2 reeds (principally because there is no strength in my embouchure yet and it's what I feel comfortable with) and my question is, how many hours should I get out of a reed before it starts to go off?
The second is one that I asked here about 18 months ago and I still have not had any luck with so I am hoping that either a newbie or someone who missed the last post will be able to help. Can anyone help identify a clarinet with the name "Leslie Sheppard Burgess Hill Sussex" stamped inside an oval on the bell? The only other reference I have ever found to Leslie Sheppard was an Oboe on an auctioneers website.
