assuming that your reed is good or good enough to play
most reed's on eBay do need work - and are only 50~60% ready - you might need to tune them and work on them .....Although i have been fortunate enough to know masters as MKS, Ashot and now days Master Albert who have made numerous reed's for me, I to have had many reed's that have gave me problems - but most of them have become excellent reed's after playing them for long time and correcting it's shape, Sound and the tunning.
The way to achieve a good recording quality reed is >> do not gave up on it wink.gif get as many us you can and play them as much as you can.

any new reed can have many problems
:Such:
it sounds bit sharper ( in this case do nothing it will correct it's self in time )
takes to long to open
it closes it's self soon after you got enough moisture in it to make it playable
it has a buzzing sound
it's hard to Pinch a key

what you need to undressed is that your reed is new and in order for the reed to work and make good sound - vibration / resonance - the lisp of the reed need to be touching each other 2 to 2 1/2 mm

now what to do

you need to get enough moisture in it to make it playable, it makes it more flexible / playable
then hold the reed ( the way you see it in the picture )- and genteelly pres and twist your thumbs
do this 3 or 5 minutes at the time before and after you play the reed


REMEMBER GENTEELLY
