 Reed Inconsistency Experiences
Author: Exiawolf

I've been frustrated with reeds these past few months and I'm wondering if any one could explain or relate to my strife. I've been struggling to find good reeds (who hasn't) but exactly what's happening is so annoying. In January and February I purchased new boxes of V21's and they were both way too resistant, lending me only 2-3 responsive reeds out of two boxes. Mind you, this was out of nowhere because the V21's have been working perfectly for me up till then. I received another box of V21's today and playing through them revealed that they were ALL considerably softer, maybe even a little too soft. Is this drastic variation due to weather? Quality? Bad luck?
