    What reed are you using now? What type of music / setting will you be playing?

    Im using an Legere 2.5 and i feel like it doesnt sound jazzy enough. Im recording for all state jazz soon and need to record 4 etudes.

    Might try a different synthetic reed if you need more edge or change to a higher baffle mouthpiece. The cheaper option would be to try maybe something like a fibracell reed.

    I agree. Try a different brand. When I was playing regularly in a concert band I used Legere to keep the edge off my sound.

    Try some Rico Plasticovers. Big fat sound with some bite.
