I play RJS 2 hard and am wanting to get a Legere or other similar plastic type reed and i see there in a lot of quarter sizes.Anyone have a clue what matches the RJS 2H cane reed.

haven't tried a RJS2H, but I used to use RJS 2S and 2M and I now use legere 2.25, so my guess would be 2.5 for you

You can always use their exchange policy, just pay postage to swap for a different strength.


Interesting chart, does anyone know if the non legere comparisons on it are correct?

Hi
Here is their chart:

Saxophone is below Clarinet and alto and tenor have different strengths.
Hope that helps?
Cheers

I have both 2.25 and 2.5. I'm really between the 2 ('cos i'm an awkward begger) I do love them though for consistency and longevity. Tried the Hahn Carbonfiber too but it's a tad bright (for me) on alto but I prefer that on soprano - told you I was awkward :)

Hope you like it Davey
