I originally was given a 2.25 reed that a friend has purchased. I really liked the response of the reed in the lower tones but had trouble with the higher tones (which personnaly has always been a problem for me on my particular instrument). I decided to order the 2.5 and have really liked this reed. The response in all ranges is great. I have used Legere reeds for over 10 years and like this cut the best. I am a former flute/piccolo older adult player who started playing bass clarinet when my daughter stopped. I consider myself Jr High level at best :)
I really like playing with this reed. All the notes were easy to play and my tone was really good. Thank you for making a quality reed.
I bought 2.75 European Cut bass reed and love the ease of playing and the warm, resonant sound. Bought a second one for rotation and wound up selling it to another player who was struggling with cane reeds on Rite of Spring. She's now a Legere convert. Will buy another one for myself.
I had not played my bass clarinet for many months and the European Cut reeds made it so much easier.I just love them.
Feels and sounds comparably to cane -- I highly recommend!!!
