I had the same experience. Bought one Classic and it plays/sounds fantastic, so I bought several more and they are all stuffy and dull sounding with sluggish response compared to the first one.

I've had the same experience with the Signature series. One plays/sounds fantastic, several others just play/sound "ok". The "ok" reeds are still better than the stuffy Classic reeds, however.

I've tried two of the European Signature reeds. Both have been really good. They are based off the soprano sax Signature reed (which some people prefer), so they are a little wider than the regular Signature. This caused me to damage my first ES reed while carelessly slipping it into my reed case.

I've also tried one Signature soprano sax reed. It plays/sounds decent but seems unnecessary as the ES clarinet reed is based on the same design and fits the clarinet mouthpiece better.
