    i have tried them before. They are very consintant and provide nice tone. I wasn't impressed with how they reacted to altissimo, but other than that, they're very good reeds. try them.

    I have purchased several boxes direct from Orfeo Borgani in Macerate Italy this past summer. I find them to be very consistent and smooth without the graininess that you experience from the Rico Royals. I found that I had to go to a strong for the Altisimo clarity and the low Bb was a very strong sound with them. they last for me many plays (many hours) and I am pleasantly still playing on them and prefer them over all other reeds I have tried on the past. I would highly recomend trying them, you will be pleasantly surprised too. Johnny
