How do I adjust reed strength/resistance on the ClariMate?

As the ClariMate includes two food-grade plastic non-vibrating reeds for use with the ClariMate, most users will need to adjust the resistance of the instrument, in order to compensate for their accustomed reed strength. The unit includes three resistance plugs (D2-D4), which provide varying levels of resistance, customizing the player experience. The plug is inserted into the bottom of the plug (bell end). The smallest diameter hole (D2) provides the most resistance, and the largest diameter hole (D4 provides the least resistance of the included plugs). By default, having no plug installed provides the least amount of resistance.

Furthermore, accustomed reed strength can also be calibrated digitally through the ClariMate app for further advanced user settings. (Breath Controls > Pressure > Click "No Mapping/Soft Reed/Medium Reed/Hard Reed" to cycle through reed strengths)
