Since I AM a disagreeable old codger, I will go ahead and play the 'disagreeable, old codger' and represent the other view of Reserve vs Vandoren.


Yes, many professionals have tried the Rico mouthpieces, but many have abandoned them as they are mostly too resistant.


The top Rico reeds are gaining in popularity amongst professional orchestral musicians but Vandoren still is the most popular reed.


And whether we refer to reeds OR mouthpieces, Vandorens are as consistent and are as fine a professional product as you can find. I have found another brand (using a different method of finishing) of mouthpiece to be so consistent from one to the other that is almost scary, but Vandoren does NOT have a quality problem despite what others may claim. And I say this as someone who pulls no punches regarding quality such as the poor finishing we see on most new Buffets (the spongy synthetic padding they place under the crow's foot and at other places where the gluing is so bad it just falls off, and the cheapest pads ever brought to market). Come on Buffet, you're getting over three grand a piece for that.
