Interestingly,I get 45 seconds on the bass alone..which is an MG Carbon.

I did try BT reeds a few years ago but did not at all care for the tone ( in my pipes) so immediately returned them to the retailer.

Well, I have managed to zero in on the reed and now am getting an avg of 1.20 following Bruce's test. So I'm happy now. Ended up opening the tongue the whole way and slowly bringing it back. Thanks
