Thanks for the comparison video, Richard. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the Ocean has the same reeds as the cheaper Student 32. An uncharitable suspicion would be that the Ocean is just a tricked up version of the Student 32. The sound comparisons are striking.

It seems likely to me that the responsiveness issue with the Ocean is a matter of reed gapping being altered during your tuning.
