Sadly, although my new M-36 is in all other respects in excellent condition, the low end Eb reed has been broken off and was not included (though that wouldn’t make any difference for me).So I will return it or make some other arrangement with the seller. I have taken the M-36 apart and have photos. It is a very solid instrument. I also compared it to my M-37C — currently available — and they are very similar, though the M-36 is a bit shorter and thinner and so has a more compact feel to it.
