 Re: New Vandoren V21

I've been playing Vandoren blue box and V-12 strength 4 for about 3 years now. I just got a box of the V21 strength 4 reeds. After going to the break-in process, I found only 4 of the 10 playable. I found all 10 played "hard", harder than the blue box or V12 #4s. According to the Vandoren comparison chart, the V21 4s are supposed to be a tad softer than the V12 or blue box 4s. Maybe this was just a fluke box. Overall, I was unimpressed by them. As long as I have played Vandoren over my career (35+ years), I think I may have to try the D'Addario or Rico Reserve reeds.
