I might have found a new favourite alto-sax reed

So far I had been rather satisfied with the very basic, blue Vandoren reed on my alto. In combination with my Aizen GR 8 I consistently got a good sound and tuning. Somehow though the 2.5 I used had the tendency to be a bit on the stiff side and I usually had to file them a bit down, to get them, you know, just right. I tried the #2, but they were too light to my taste.

The other I day, I decided to try the V21 by Vandoren, which at least as of now, seem to hit just that sweet spot. Having a decent amount of resistance, but still are neither too hard or too soft.

It is still a bit too early to say for sure, but I’m having a good feeling about this.

5th Anniversary

I believe under normal circumstance the 5th anniversary is referred to as the wooden one, but I believe it must be the Millennium Falcon one. What an awesome gift from my lovely wife.
