Vandoren sells for about 200k per piece while Rico's tag price is more or less 110k.

Just came from HK and bought a box of Vandoren V 16 soprano reed for 180k HK$ and a box of La Voz soprano reed for 140k HK$ from Tom Lee Music.

I tried those made in China reeds & so far they're ok..

I recently purchased an alto reed w/brand "Ri Yin" #2 1/2 available at Laser Music stores in SM.. and I found it's more comfortable to play than my Vandoren #2 1/2  ..I found out that Vandorens are a little thicker than other brands with the same gauge..

The brand "Flying Goose" made in China is also ok.. I bought #3 because there's no more 2 1/2 available.. I just sanded it to my desired thickness.. ayos din ang tunog..

I also got me some Flying Gooose 2 1/2 Alto reeds for P50 a piece. I am using it on my Yamaha YAS 23 and I can hear the difference between this, a Vandoren and Rico reeds. Vandoren and Rico reeds are a lot better in my opinion but the Flying Goose, for its price, is good enough for everyday practice. I also had to shave it a little to get my desired strength and ultimately the sound.

Uy san ka bumili ng Flying Goose sir JDennis?  Mas mura ah.. dito sa Laguna, 70 pesos/piece yan eh.. Yung Ri Yin sir Ding, p60 lang sa Lazer Music store.. per piece ang benta nila eh.. Medyo bright lang ang sound nyan Ri Yin compared to Vandoren..  mellow ang Vandoren eh.. mas gusto ko pa rin ang dark o mellow..
