normally i pop into our local music shop and buy one cane reed that has worked perfectly every time i’ve bought one, and they sometimes last up to a year (it’s all down to the way you break them in and store them).
however my local music shop is shut during the virus lock down, so i had to order a whole box of reeds online instead.
10 D’Addario – Select Jazz Unfiled alto saxophone reeds, Strength 2 Hard, for £27.42
So, i thought, why not buy one of them synthetic reeds online at the same time
Great JB, let us know how it works for you. The copper has become one of my favorites now.
I can’t remember ever playing a D’Addario but I know many like them.
your Copper price was a little higher than here in N America but maybe you paid less in shipping so….
Hi Johhny, i still have to pay postage on top, depending on how much i pay for the type of delivery postage, i could have it delivered the next day or delivered two to three days later, which is the cheaper option.
I ran through a lot of your videos, and i noticed your onyx sounds a lot different to your copper reed, not sure which i prefer. Trouble is you play tenor where as i play alto, so i cant compare a tenor sound to an alto sound in terms of selecting an alto reed.
High notes on alto are a lot more pure in pitch, so it will be interesting to hear how clear the copper reed sounds.
