Reed Setup Tips
Soak in Water
Reeds need to be wet to function properly. You can soak them for a minute or 2 in a glass of water, or put them in your mouth to get them wet.
Store in a Case
When you finish playing your reed, it is best to remove it from the mouthpiece and store in a protective case.
Line It Up
Setup your reed on the mouthpiece with good lighting. It's very important that the reed is perfectly centered and lined up with the tip and rails of your mouthpiece.
Your ligature is also designed to be centered on the reed and the mouthpiece. Take your time setting it up, we don't want the ligature to be crooked, or too high (or low) on the reed.
Storing reeds in an airtight container can result in mold. Avoid storing your reeds in an airtight container or inside a sealed up case. It's good to allow for some air flow on your reeds.
Softer reeds make playing the saxophone easier. Harder reeds can lead players to develop the bad habit of biting with the embouchure. The trade off is that softer reeds don't last as long.
Adjust with a Geeklet
A Geeklet reed adjusting tool is the best investment you can make for better reed performance. Learning a few very simple adjustments is a total game changer.
Wet the Back
Wetting the back of the reed allows us to use the saliva or water to create a stronger seal with the mouthpiece table.
Clip Soft Reeds
When a good reed gets too soft, you can clip it using a quality reed clipper. This can give the reed a second life.
