Yes. Mine arrived yesterday. I didn't care for it at all. Very stiff even for a #3. Dull and unresponsive sound. I'm sticking to Legere European Signature.

Awful. Don't waste your money. I agree that it is dull and unresponsive. It also had fibers sticking out of it. I have had similar fibers with Legere, but usually after I had used them for a time. This was new out of the box and they were very pronounced.

Sorry wanted to like it.... Ordered a #3 and very stiff and unresponsive.
Also fibers on sides of reed making it look very unfinished....

I didn't think they were that terrible but only felt like playing it for less than five minutes before going back to the trusty Legere European Signatures.
