I thought it would be interesting to run a poll to see where everyone places their reeds on the mouthpiece when setting up. I know many of you will think this is nonsense and you might assume that we all do this the same but I have had so many students come in my studio that do different things when putting on their reeds. I’ve listed the choices I see most often as the answers. If you choose to give more detail as to why you place your reed in that position and the benefits of it feel free to in the comments below. Thanks, Steve
