    I remember those. They would chip your reed more than if you left it out...

    I sat next to a girl that would constantly 'latch and unlatch' between pieces and when the director would work with another section. Sometimes she put it between her lips and imitate a duck.

Legere, legere studio cut, legere signature, fibracell, and several others all in various strengths...I've tried to like them but I hate how they vibrate and how fake they feel on my lip. I feel like the mouthpiece is gonna slide right out of my mouth. This is my own opinion though, and obviously opinions vary, but as for me, synthetics haven't worked that well for me.

    Are you looking to buy them by the box, or just a few single reeds?

    I have a yellow box of Alexander Superials 3.5. Unused, I bought them maybe 5 or 6 years ago.
    Interested?

    Whatever the cheapest but I'm thinking with shipping, boxes would end up being cheaper, except if someone would send me an assortment of hard reeds of different brands.

    Not hard enough, sorry man.

    Looking at this chart : http://www.saxophon-service.de/shop/z_57.htm anything under the #4 column will be too soft.

    I wouldn't know, as I never played them. For some reason I seem to be allergic to cane, and I bought these just before I started playing synthetics exclusively.

    BTW I just noticed I have two hard synthetics which I don't use. One is a Hard Hartmann Fiber reed, the other a Légère #4. Both are playtested only.

    I was just about to order Rigotti's 3.5 - I would be interested in your Superials.
