Reeds Thicker reeds- higher notes?

So, I'm frustrated because sometimes when I pick up my new Lade soprano Sax I can pull off the high notes. And then other times I go to play the high notes and they just don't come out.
My reed right now is a 2.5. Would thicker reeds help?

I don't need another mouthpiece; but . . .

As a general rule, a harder reed will make it easier to play high notes but more difficult to play low notes.
So you can try it and see.

But I think the key to getting high notes reliably on a soprano is simply practice.

Good luck - you will need it...and don't give up...
