I returned the first one, got a new one and both were equally bad. Very happy about Thomann's services. The reed itself looks like a clean well cut european scrape. However the length of the reed is wrong (too long), the tip too thin, too much of the heart is gone. This makes a reed that is too easy to play and has a very metallic and shrill sound. It is unusable. I cut about 5mm off and rescraped the reed and then it was almost good enough for a practice reed.
