It seems I have been going senile for more years than I thought

When I started--I'm a late bloomer--I read about American cut and French cut reeds

The article said that American cut gave a "brassy, bright" sound suited for marching bands and the French cut gave a " mellow, rounded" sound suitable for Jazz

I dont know why but in my fuddled brain I rationalised that to mean filed and unfiled as the two differences


The thing is I can easily check which reeds are filed or not filed from the spec's, Rico Royal v LaVoz etc , but where do I find a table to tell me which are French cut and which are American cut
