Someone suggested I try this song, in a jazzy style, so I worked out the notes in my head and went for it. I think it normally starts on A but that takes me over the break. Not yet...So I'm starting on E.

A bit of sympathetic vibration. Would be neat if all the notes sounded like that 😉

.  On the Yamaha, the 3 sounds like it's a bit too hard.
That could be just me not being used to a harder reed, and the fact they're brand new reeds. Do they take time to wear in?

Looks good. I quite fancy an alto. Bit rich for me though

All about Clarinets / Trying out strength 3 reeds

Ok so I'm trying out Rico Royals strength 3. I expected to really struggle to get air out but it was a lot easier than I expected! At first all I got was air, but I guess new reeds need warming up. I first tried one with the Noblet 2V mpc, and while it improved things it was a struggle. Much easier to play on the Yamaha 4C, with no squeaks at all, which surprised me!
First, on the Noblet

I couldnt help noticing that the noblet plays flat, so I switched to the longer barrel. Et voila!

I still generally prefer the Yamaha, to me it sounds more like a clarinet. But I want to try a 3 strength reed with the Noblet.

I had another testing session, switching between the Yamaha and the Noblet, switching reeds too on each. While the Noblet sounds much brighter, I feel there's something about it, and with the right reed I believe it is perfect for jazz. I'd love to try a strength 3 reed with it, offering a bit more resistance. With a light reed it plays flat.
Here are 3 comparison videos

Well its all good. The only part of clarinet playing thats holding me back is going up with the register key. I play an A then hit the register key for next higher notes and its so awkward having to jump down to the pinky keys. Its just not smooth.

Its weird. The Noblet 2V is supposed to be a better mpc than my Yamaha 4C, but I easily prefer the Yamaha! It sounds warmer, less harsh than the Noblet. Or is it just me  :-\
