Clarinet reed problems?

I've been playing clarinet for 4 years now. I've been using mostly rico 3s, vandoren 2 1/2s, and plasticovers. My director announced that he wants all of his clarinets to be using vanodren 3s for a solid sound. I've been trying to play with vandoren 3s for awhile now, but it's too hard for me and I usually end up switching back to a rico or plastic reed. I don't know if I've just been getting bad reeds or not.

How do I get up to the ability to play with vandoren 3s?

Ya, that was wrong of your band director to say that. You can't just can't generalise like that about clarinet reeds. One person may well get a "solid" sound using a Vandoran 3, while the next person (who may be equally as good) may not. It depends on so many variables:
-mouthpiece - mouthpieces with a bigger lay (space between reed and mouthpiece) need softer reeds

-ligature

-instrument

-your embouchure - if you have a good relaxed embouchure, softer reeds will give you a better sound

-your breath support - if you are putting a lot of air through the instrument, then you will probably need harder reeds

This is how you can get up to the ability to play with Vandoran 3s. More air. It's exhausting for the first while, but if you keep at it you'll get there. The worst possible thing you could do is go back to your softer reeds, because then all your hard work will be undone. Just struggle through it for the first week or two, and then it should feel normal.

If you still can't play Vandoran 3s comfortably after the two weeks, then your mouthpiece probably has a massive lay and 2 1/2 is the correct strength to use with it. Don't be afraid to point this out to your director. He's definately in the wrong here. Good luck!
