Reeds in My Saxophone Case
While in California recently, I bought a new box of alto saxophone reeds because I wanted new reeds to play my sax. So this afternoon, I cleaned out my saxophone case. I kept all of the reeds still in boxes but threw away used and loose reeds in order to make sure I wasn't reusing old reeds. It's been awhile since I've played my sax. Here are the reeds that were in my case:
XS = extra-small (mini, 4 x 5-1/2 or so — an 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of paper, folded twice) S = small (digest-size, 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 — normal paper, folded in half) M = medium (full-size, 8-1/2 x 11 — regular size writing or copy paper) B = books L = large (tabloids, or anything else noticeably bigger than 8-1/2 x 11) XL = extra-large (broadsheet, big posters)
