I am an aspiring Klezmer clarinetist. I've been playing a couple of years and still struggling to build up my chops so I'm not drooling after 20 minutes of playing. I have met several accomplished ethnic clarinetists (Greek, Macedonian Gypsy, etc) who use VERY soft reeds (#1-1.5) instead of #3-4 as used by classical clarinetists. Anyone have an opinion about this issue as it relates to Klez style playing? What is the advantage of harder reeds?
