I bought this reed because I need a reed that is easy to play. It is too stiff for a beginner and I cannot use it.
Bjorklund Reedworks - Student Reeds
Please note that we do not accept returns on reeds or cane unless damaged on arrival.
I occasionally order reeds from multiple suppliers in search of great reeds for students. After reading Ann Hodge’s comparison chart about the reeds she sells I ordered one reed from each of three of those reed makers; the Bjorklund student reed was one of those. I was really impressed with the stability, tone quality and easy response of that reed. It was much better than some “pro model” reeds I have tried.
seems to do a fine job
I have tried the medium and medium hard. Both are very well balanced and play easily. The medium hard is not too hard to blow and has a good amount of resistance. They consistently have a focused and stable tone throughout the range. I have not had to make any pitch adjustments. I like this reed very much. It carries in a large band and the dynamics are easily produced for a chamber orchestra.
