Reed Hardness

This reed is available in standard and soft versions. The Thunemann Soft reed is made specially for Double Reed Ltd., and will benefit those who play less often as you will get less tired on softer reeds, and it is also good if you like to play with a looser embouchure. The sound is slightly quieter, but also easier to control.

The standard reed is for those who play regularly. It gives more projection, a bit more stability and a broader tone quality, but is slightly harder work to play on.
