I ran across the chance to purchase a used set of Henderson-spec Rocket reeds and was given a trial of them first. I have been playing Naill-spec Rockets in my 1950’s Hendersons. So here’s your chance to tell me what you think about each as I’m trying to figure out which I like better, but I’d like your input too. The seller already told me he was planning on having a biased opinion (wink) so I’m not going to tell you which is which, muahahaha, until later, anyway. I haven’t had much practice time as of late so I suck more than usual (fingers are still tired a day later), yada yada yada…

These Henderson Rockets will be for sale should I decide not to keep them so keep them on your radar if you’re interested. Chanter was the same Colin Kyo with Husk reed. The vibrato you hear on the high A in the second set of recordings is due to a ever so slightly flat high A. Just add a little tape and viola! Cheerios!
