Changed My Reed and My Playing At the Same Time!

Stephen148, 23.08.2013
I've been struggling with my new Sax for 3 weeks now - but I am completely new to sax playing. It was hard to blow at all, I run out of breath quickly, I need several blows to get one note, usually worse at the start of playing and the lower notes "stall" and gurgle. All the usual beginners issues and more!

My tutor recommended that I change to a 1.5 grade reed and so I got a box of 5 Marcha Jazz 1.5 reeds to try them out. My playing is completely changed. The notes are MUCH easier to hit first time. I went right up to high C (3rd octave) with no problems and all first time, without breathing hard at all.

I do have some issues though:

1. The mouthpiece seems to completely "block" when trying top D (I did get that previously blowing very hard with a number 2 reed). It is as if there is a plug at the back of the MP stopping the air.

2. The sound is dramatically changed. It seems much brighter, and harsher, almost "growling" and raspy (without using the growl technique).

I would say that these are both issues with my technique and the reed has completely changed the way I play and making it more of a pleasure to play the saxophone, even though I am still a complete beginner.

Buying the Marcha Jazz 1.5 reed was smething of a random choice, as I know very little about reeds yet - but it was certainly a lucky find in my case.

Maybe not for me...

Reeds always difficult to review as is very personal and depending of your setup.

I just wanted to try some different reeds and
I used it on my old vintage alto sax with a vintage metal otto link mouthpiece.

Easy to play, but I did not like the sound, which of course can be a personal taste....
I prefer a fuller sound and more resistance.

For my setup I now moved to Rico Royal Jazz 3s...
