😎 Hey Johnny,
I have experimented with the Vandoreen 2.5 Java Reed on the hard rubber MP for Tenor for a couple months; the guys at the local shop were nice enough to let me buy just one of them out of the entire pack. I have no problems playing it but it doesn’t strike me as the kind of reed well-suited for a hard-rubber MP (The Junos that I have are really good for hard-rubber Mouthpieces). I was reading about your first experience with Guardala and seems like in the beginning you weren’t a big fan of this line of Vandoren reeds either but got hooked on them once you played it with a Guardala. In your experience, do these line of reeds play better with Metal MPs in general or has it been just the Guardala?
i’m not an expert, but with my yamaha 4c mouthpiece i couldn’t get any joy out of the vandoren reeds, and i bought them by the box. Then i changed mouthpieces to a Kali Rubber 8, gave the vandorens another try and the java green was fantastic even though it was a 1.5, and the normal vandoren 1.5 reeds were ok as well. So it is strange, for me i get the impression that some mouthpieces were designed around specific reeds?
