Admin and all around good guy.
Anyone know about these. They are available at ProWinds. I've purchased some for my alto and tenor just to check them out. Happy mother's day to me?

Me too (and Vibrators, but I preferred Rico). For a number of years I have used LaVoz, Grand Concert Selects, and Gonzalez. Last week, on a whim, I picked up a box of Rico Reserve clarinet reeds. First impression is "Wow".I grew up on Rico's.
Well, it may be still early, but I LOVE my tenor sound now with the Java Reds. Don't know if they are going to die quicker than the Green box versions. BUT...they darkened my tone with my metal Berg but still provide the projection I need. SO...at this point I'm a Java Red fan.Anyone else finding that the Vandoren Java Reds die faster than any other reed? Mine seem to go bad after two uses/gigs. Dunno what that's about.
I still prefer the old style packaging. Reeds in a box with some tissue paper (or whatever it was). I suppose the new plastic holders (that have been around since the 80's) keep reeds from being damaged in transit.
