I've been reading some good comment about the consistency of Benz reeds. Anyone used them? Also how do they compare strength-wise?
Musicroom do them at £19.95 for 5, not cheap. I am using Marca Jazz 3s at present which have proved rather consistant but, and its becoming a big BUT, I find they lose their edge quite quickly and turn a little soft which makes getting higher notes difficult. I seem to be getting only 2 weeks from a reed. Maybe it's a time to change, I don't really want to go even harder.
Have you had enough of buying packs of reeds for your saxophone or clarinet, only to end up throwing out half the reeds in the pack because they’re duds? Then consider Benz Reeds a prayer answered. Through very careful cane selection and a rigorous individual machining process, Benz-Reeds eliminate the concept of dud reeds altogether.
