I am so grateful for these reeds. I didn’t expect to be asked to play contra upon arriving at college out-of-state, so I was without contra reeds and totally panicked, but these saved me. They arrived insanely quickly (3 business days) and they work great. Dark, rich tone, very steady and strong sound, no air leaks/buzzing. They do work fine without any extra carving/adjustment, in case you’re without the tools and were worried about that, but they also left plenty of room for adjustments, which is nice. Thank you!!
