 Re: Frustrated while practicing because of reeds

Hi! Finally finished with my audition and first rehearsal!

After my first rehearsal, and gained a lot of knowledge. Right off the bat, I don't think I'll be switching to a legere reed yet. As I read in previous discussions, there is a adjustment period to it where you have to get used to tonguing, altissimo, etc so for me, I believe that I would not be a good idea to relearn all the fundamentals when I haven't even mastered them in the first place.

I, indeed saw some players with Legere reeds and I'll definitely consider buying it when marching season starts. When I do switch, what mouthpiece do you recommend pairing with it? I know the most popular model is the European cut and they specifically said to match with french mouthpieces. Will the reed work on the BD5?

In the mean time, I think it is inevitable that I learn to use cane reeds. I'll start breaking them in probably and I might even get a reed tool! Currently, I use Micheal Lowenstern's reed sanding cloths. They work very well and they helped find the reed I was looking for! I'm considering any reed tool that'll make my life easier and go through less reeds. As long as the price isn't absurd, I'll consider it! Any opinions on the Reed Geek? It looks like a convenient tool. The only thing i'm worried about is using it properly.
