than on your VI?
than on your VI?
For years and years I played a Florida 7* with Orange box Rico 3 1/2 on a Mark VI. Recently I switched to a 6* with 3 1/2. Last Monday I got a Tranny and it seems that I have to play it with 3's......
Could be that I'm just getting older....
Is the Tranny totally free of leaks and sealing top to bottom ?
I tend to think the Conns blow a little freer than the VIs in general so you shouldn't have to use
a lighter reed unless you like the sound and still have good control of it(always important) .
Maybe it is because the Conn has a darker sound and the lighter reed brightens it a bit.....
It were probably leaks, I'm back on the 7* with 3 1/2's
I use exactly the same reeds on my Selmer Mk VI tenor as I do on my Conn 10Ms. Which reed I use depends on the mouthpiece, not on the horn.
There’s a wicked wind still blowing on that upper deck; There’s an iron cross still hanging from around her neck;
There’s a marching band still playing in that vacant lot, Where she held me in her arms one time and said, “Forget me not.”
I use the same reeds on my 10M as on my VI just because it is easier to use the same reeds. However, the Conn is much more free blowing and I have thought about trying harder reeds on the Conn to get a little bit more resistance to push against.
I use the same reeds on my Conn NWII as I do on my VI's (two), SC902, Martin Handcraft, and any other soprano. For me, it is the mouthpiece being used, not the horn on which the mouthpiece is being used. Your thread said nothing about horn-size. DAVE
None of my horns care what strength reed I use.
My mouthpieces have definate opinions on which strength they prefer. 😉
