    Consistently, my reeds have been open and hard. I have to close the tip opening on all of my reeds which I don’t think is good. Also, even though the measurements are from Dr. Nancy Kings book (40 mm heart, 25 mm back), I have difficulty with reeds requiring a lot of biting.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
