I am actually a hobbyist rather than musician and try to play maybe half to one hour a day for just myself and just use 1 reed a day in order, and have about 30 reeds of various age and number of plays from 2 to 3 strength. I also have a box of 2.5 unused reeds. I have not played for about a month now for had no time so it may be I am just out of practice. Had actually forgotten how to make the C5-C6 notes without looking at a chart. I tried the next 2.5 reed and also a 3 reed and they did sound better. At least I was able to sound the note. And my playing improved noticeably since restarting. I suppose it IS logical to first try another reed when first notice a problem. Before breaking in a new one or starting to work on a reed. I will try to remember this in the future. The high register IS better for me with the harder reeds but I just began a new rotation and I am on the 2.5 from the 2 strength now. I just go in order of #1 - #__.
