This Bass Clarinet reed makes a great alternative sound on Saxophone

I play a G tenor and a B-flat alto mini-sax (by Erik-the-Flutemaker and Juan Del Rio respectively).

I swap out six different reeds for different sounds.

A bass clarinet reed is the same shape and width as a tenor saxophone reed, but slightly shorter and a little thinner. It works well on either tenor or alto mini-saxophones.

The bass clarinet reed produces a mellow, smooth sound, which is a nice change from the more edgy sax reed sounds. (Different reeds for different types of music).

My collection of reeds is as follows:

- Légère Studio Cut alto 1.5
- Légère Studio Cut tenor 1.5 (my favorite)
- Légère Sigature Bass Clarinet bass 1.5 (used on saxophone)
- Rico Plasticover tenor 1.5 (natural cane sound, but feels like a 2.0. Played dry.)
- Black Onyx tenor 1.5 (A little dull sounding for my taste. But since I tried it, it is in my collection).
- Rico cane Tenor 1.5 (wet reeds, and reeds that can split or splinter, are my least favorite).

Note that tenor reeds can also be used on alto mouthpieces to get a darker, fuller sound.

My collection is all 1.5 reeds because I play a mini-sax or saxoflute, which require a light reed:
- Key of G Tenor All-Terrain Saxophone by Eric-the-Flutemaker
- Key of Bb Alto Del Rio Mini Sax by Juan Del Rio.
They both can use any of my six reeds.
I also change ligatures for different sounds.
