Re: ~ Need Some Real Help Here Guys ~
If you've been playing seriously for 2 years now, and don't plan on quitting, buy a jazz pieece. The C*'s good for now on classical, but the stock piece isn't good for jazz. I actually would recommend the Otto Link Tone Edge over the Meyer on an alto. On tenor however, I think meyers are better sounding(hard rubber at least).
They're only 75 bucks I think, and are easy to find. Try a 6*, and a half or full size softer reed.
