I personally have had good luck w/ Jones reeds (you can get them for 6-7 bucks a pop online if you shop around). You will need to scrape them down quite a bit though (actually most any store-bought reed will need some refining). Try Soft and Medium-softs, as they will be a bit easier to play in tune. Post again if you have any other questions, I may be able to help.
