Reeds such a subject!?, All reed companies go through periods of good, great and down right lousy reeds. I'm really liking the Zonda's right now, because they are really tight with their packaging of really similar stregth reeds in substrenths. 3.5i reeds are really just a tad softer than 3.5J reeds. But I will make one major recomendation. GET A REED WIZARD!!! This is with out a doubt the best tool I have in my arsenal for any single reed I have. I use it on Eb, Bb Bass clarinet reeds and all my Sax reeds. It takes reeds that are hard and stuffy and makes them really playable! I wish I had it for the 20 years I was in the Field Band. The other thing with reeds is the general cut. The thick V12 type cut really require a longer than usuall facing or you spent alot of time cutting off the wood in the back or you end up using a reed that's too soft in the tip.
