Maybe the fellow from Oct 2010 is using a different kind of mouthpiece. I tried 4 or 5 different types of bari reeds with the bass mouthpiece--none of them worked well. I also tried a couple different bari mouthpieces with the bass sax (as I've heard others claim that it works just great), and I was also disappointed with the sound. A good bass mouthpiece and good bass reeds give me the best sound possible (especially for classical or small ensemble work).
I've been using Vandoren bass sax reeds for years now; pretty much because they're one of the few vendors available for bass sax. My only complaint? I wish a 5 strength reed was available - I play marching band type music frequently outdoors, and I destroy my reeds quickly enough.
I decided to write a review here due to seeing the previous (sole) review from October, 2010 - not sure what that customer experienced, but I can definitely see a difference in size between the bari and bass sax reeds. I use a bass sax mouthpiece with a large aperture opening, and the Vandoren reeds work great with it...
I bought these reeds to play bass saxophone in my sax ensemble at school. They are absolutely useless. They are the same exact size as their baritone sax reeds. Now I use Legere bari sax reeds, and they work BY FAR better than the Vandorens.
