What kind is the best?
Many students quit playing reed instruments because they cannot find good reeds. Some students are doing exceptionally well with cane reeds, while others do incredibly well with synthetic ones. Please talk to Dr. Qian about what is best for your child. Cane reeds need reed tools and other equipment to maintain. Synthetic ones are a little pricey. The bottom line is the student should never use “crappy” reeds. Every student is different regarding preference and his or her opinion.
