I've been playing with traditional Vandoren reed strenght 3, and Rico Royal strengt 3,5
I want to try the Vandoren Java.
What is the difference between red and green java? And is is a big difference from the traditonal Vandoren or Rico?
If you have a local music shop, I'd suggest going down there and sampling a few different varieties. I, personally, have found little success with the JAVA series and have seen better consistency in Rico Jazz Select (cheaper, too!).
