I really know next to nothing about reed instruments. In fact the Xaphoon is my first wind instrument (if we discount being tortured with the tin whistle in school - I certainly do!).

So I read some forums about Xaphoon playing and more experienced heads recommended 1.5s as the reed the Xaphoon comes with can be a little difficult for complete beginners to get a sound from (their words).

On that advice I searched Thomann for 1.5 reeds and saw these DAddarios. Going simply from years of using DAddario guitar strings I knew I was getting good quality and I have not been disappointed.

I began practicing trying to make sound with the Xaphoon and after a few days of trying to varying results, the original reed broke down the middle.

As I said I know nothing about wind instruments so Im not sure if this was supposed to happen, if it was user error (most likely) or if the included reed was brittle - I blame the user. But it was a relief to have the DAddario reeds as replacements and I am still on my 1st of the set of three.

These could be the worst reeds in the world, I dont have the experience to tell but I do know that I expected quality and reliability from DAddario solely based on years of using their strings - and I have not been disappointed.

Xaphoon practice continues (slowly) - thank you DAddario!

Die Blätter sind gut verarbeitet und sprechen gut an.

Für ein dauerhaftes Spiel sind sie mir persönlich etwas zu "weich", allerdings eignen sie sich gut, wenn man in das Spiel mit einem offeneren Mundstück reinkommen will oder generell wenn man etwas Schwierigkeiten mit dem Ansatz hat. Hier hilft wirklich am besten ausprobieren. Wenn man mit 2 oder 2 1/2-Blättern Probleme hat, einfach mal testen, da kann man nix falsch machen.
