 LaVoz Reeds

Been using LaVoz mediums on clarinet for quite a few years and have been happy with them. They were always packaged in individual plastic reed holders. About six months ago I added an alto sax to my musical life and bought a box of LaVoz mediums from a well known musical supply house and they looked like what I was used to including the plastic reed holders. Was quite happy with them. I had some credit with a well known supplier of everything purchasable in the universe and ordered two boxes of LaVoz mediums for sax from them. The reeds came boxed completely different. No plastic reed holders. Bigger box, with a lot of padding and the reeds grouped in layers 2, 4, 4. The box was similarly printed as the smaller boxes with reed holders. The reeds have the LaVoz logo printed in green on the back and med printed on the top side in green. The ones I was used to have the LaVoz name, and med printed on the backside in brown. The new reeds came with an insert detailing the Rico reed lineup and indicated the relative quality of each brand name and cane quality. LaVoz cane quality was below Grand Concert brand. I played Grand Concerts for a long time but found the LaVoz reeds more consistent. I have only tried one new LaVoz so far and I suspect that it is inferior to what I had been used to. Not enough data to have a firm opinion yet. If you like LaVoz reed holders don't toss them.
