 Re: Gonzalez RC Bass Clarinet Reeds Review

I picked up a couple of boxes of these in 3 1/2 and the first 2 out of the first box were very poor, basically unplayable. I thought I had probably wasted my money on them, but a couple of days later started going through the rest of them. By contrast, the remaining 8 reeds all play very well, with a couple of exceptional reeds. Going back to the reeds over a couple of weeks, I find I like them even more. I love the darker tonality, and they can be pushed or played very softly. I agree with the slight "airyness" comment from the OP. But overall I am a satisfied Gonzalez customer and will buy again. I do use the ATG method to balance reeds, but have found most of the Gonzalez reeds just need a slight touch-up to play very well.
