has this ever happened to you guys? Ur playing with a 3 reed (rico) and u run outta threes and hafta use a 2 1/2. So i used it fur about a week, and when i finally bought threes again, it took me the whole day to get adjusted to them. Does the half-size difference actually matter?
yeah even the smallest chip can affect playing.
lol, reminds me of a story.
day after the concert, sr concert band.
playing stuff over for the heck of it.
reed breaks... in half. all the way down.
not allowed to get a new one, or too lazy, i forget.
i sounded horrible. i think i played on it for a challenge.
but yeah, even the smallest can screw you over.
Reminds me of my cousins when they come over. Running around all the time. One time they were acting crazy and hit my sax while i was practicing. It banged my lip, hurt like a certain place i cant say.
i've been playing on tenor for 5 years now (Feels longer XD) And I use a 2 1/2 Vandoren or Rico Royal (I can't make up my mind). I want to get into soprano though... I might have to get a higher reed because I tried using a 2 1/2 but I couldn't get past high c..
