Reed stiffness will have a much more pronounced effect on the tone than the intonation - unless there are severe embouchre problems.

I always recommend that my students play on the stiffest reed they can and still produce a full tone.

(When I play clarinet, I use a Vandoren 3-1/2...but since I'm primarily a bassoonist/violist, ymmv.)
