has anyone noticed variations in reed finishing quality ?
I bought some Rico Royal reeds for my son. Compared to my Vandorens they are very rough on the flat and cut surface. It is like they are finished with 320 grit or less sandpaper.
The vandorens, by comparison are finished with 600 grit sandpaper.
I found the RR hard on my lips until I lightly sanded them down.
I'm curious if others have seen the same or have any problems with the finished reeds ?
