A couple of months ago I bought some different strength Vandoren V16 tenor reeds to try. I liked the strength 2s but couldn't get on with the 3.5 and 4s as they required so much puff. I thought that I'd give them another go today but found I needed to blow so hard to get a decent sound out of them that I was playing really, really loudly. Given that I'm constantly having to rein back my sound in order not to drown out the rest of my band I was wondering how to play one of these quietly. Or do I just stick with the 2s?
