 reeds are flat in the altissimo
Author: rstanley

Hi All - I've recently strayed from using Vandoren Rue Lepic 3.5 Bb reeds on my Grabner G11*/Chadash barrel/Buffet R13/ and gone over to European reeds like Leuthner, Steuer, and most recently to Oklahoma's finest, Behn's Aria reeds. Of these I like the Aria the best (3.5 - 4) with the Leuthner a close 2nd. The Steuer Exclusives were very flat in the altissimo (as has been mentioned here before I think), but I'm finding the Aria to be a bit flat as well. I believe the Leuthner have the best pitch in the upper registers but I prefer the sound and playability of the Aria reed.

Has anyone else had this experience? Are there different reed styles from these makers to consider?
