What size reed should I be using for the Bb Clarinet?

I have been playing the clarinet for almost 3 years in the school's band program. I have not had any private lessons so I am unsure of the type of reed and size I should use. I feel it important to know because I'm in the Marching Band and are playing in different temperatures with high notes that don't sound as well as I know they can. I'm now using a size 4 in the Mitchell Lurine brand, I believe. Can you help?

some good points here - some not so good.

The reed you play on is more a function of the tip opening of your mouthpiece than any other consideration. It's not even a little related to how long you've been playing or how good you are.

What brand you use doesn't matter as much as being able to pick the good reeds from the box and not use the not-so-good reeds. An excellent Vandoren beats an off center Laurie every day and vice-versa.

What you need right now is a clarinet teacher. Band teachers are great and many are also clarinet teachers, but your band teacher can't give you the 1:1 attention you need right now to make sure you have the right set-up for you.

In a single lesson, a clarinet teacher can tell if you have the right mouthpiece, ligature, and reed combination for you and what you need to start with to improve your playing.

If cost of lessons is an issue, talk to the teacher and see if you can work out 30 minute lessons every other week (instead of 1 hour weekly) or even just a few lessons to help get you set-up and improving.

Anyone that tells you "after x years you need to play on a #4 reed" is confused. It's more about you and what you need. There is no always right answer. That's why there are lots of reed sizes and lots of brands.

On my rosewood with a really wide tip I play on a 1.5 or 2 Vandoren reed. I also use soft reeds on the big clarinets. I have a very close tip French mouthpiece that demands a 4 or 5 reed. Most people I know playing on a medium close tip mouthpiece are using a 2.5 or 3. It's all about finding out what works for you and your setup. You need a professional (teacher) to help with that part.
