There's a reason why these are only $21 - MEH.

They're just meh. If you just want inexpensive reeds, then go for it. But if you're wanting more depth and warmth in your sound you're better off going with the V12, V21, or another brand altogether (D'Addario Reserve Classic are awesome). A lot of my students play on them because they are recommended by their band directors, so I bought a box recently to see if they've changed at all since I last used them (which was high school, many moons ago), and I was NOT impressed. I still find them to be bright and lacking depth, and not to mention wildly inconsistent. I'm a professional player and I also do a lot of private teaching, and I find that when I get my students to switch off of these reeds and onto another type, their sound and control immediately improves, and they get more playable and consistent reeds out of the box. There's a reason they're $21 when other reed types are upwards of $30. You get what you pay for.
