OVERVIEW

Unprecedented Tone, Flexibility and Response

The Rico Select Jazz cut yields excellent projection and a clear, fat tone by virtue of its well-defined heart and longer vamp. Other characteristics of this reed are its great flexibility and fast response. This reed is available with or without a French file (please note, this item listing is for the unfiled verson). The debate rages on in saxophone forums all across the web. Filed, or unfiled? The conventional wisdom is that the unfiled are a little less bright, but that they can be pushed to achieve the brightness they fail to display right out of the gate. As to whether that charactersitic is an attribute or a detriment, or as to whether that is even an accurate characterization is ultimately up to the individual player. Maybe it's worth rolling the dice and getting a box, just in case the unfiled sound and feel is exactly what you're looking for.

FEATURES
  • Outstanding control and projection
  • Available in both Filed and Unfiled models for the full range of saxophones
  • Available in third strengths (soft, medium, and hard) from 2.0 to 4.0

I've tried many reeds on my Selmer III tenor. This reed plays well--crisp and with depth--in all registers. The Series III can sound too bright and thin in the upper register, but this reed plays with enough weight in the upper tones and sounds terrific down low. A great reed that doesn't sacrifice any needed characteristic for jazz (with) high quality control and consistency. I recommend the 3S and 3M unfiled for jazz.

I use to play on Rico Jazz Selects before switching to Vandoren. Out of curiosity, I decided to see if the D'Addario reeds play like the RJS of old. These reeds seem very dull and stuffy to me. The entire box didn't play well and even had one that was chipped straight out of the box. I ordered two boxes and decided not to even open the second box.

Used to be Rico now D'Addario - quality control was lax for a while but seems to be better now. I loved these reeds when Rico - now we'll see.

    D'Addario ruined Rico Jazz Select reeds

    By 

    from Phoenix, AZ

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Unfiled Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

    I've been playing Rico Jazz Select Unfiled reeds for a decade and they were always pretty great reeds until D'Addario bought them out. Now they are cut inconsistently and there are fewer playable reeds right out of the box. They've ruined this line of reeds. While I have a lot of these reeds, and they are pretty good, I've switched to Rigottis.

    These reeds are the bomb! I first started playing these about 4 months ago, and they are great. The response is very free-blowing, they project very well. Give them a try!

    Simply amazing

    By

    Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Unfiled Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

    I've gotta say that these reeds are amazing. After using Vandoren ZZs and V16s, these were a breath of fresh air. The consistancy in the cane is just great and I hardly ever have any problems with these in regards to warping (once they settle after a week or two). Balance is never an issue with these reeds. As for tone, there aren't many better! These reeds will give you a very well-rounded sound throughout the range of the horn. The unfiled are definitely darker and perhaps a little more "husky" sounding than the filed. The only other reed that comes close to these are the Alexander DC reeds. Other than that, there's no competition.

    definately one of the best

    Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Unfiled Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

    I first tried these reeds when Jerry Bergonzi gave a clinic at Berklee, and he was sponsored by Rico so he gave out a bunch of Rico stuff, including these reeds. I've never switched back to Vandoren. The only competition to these reeds is Alexander DC, but they take so long to prep I find these to be much less of a hassle. They are very consistent, and offer a nice, even tone throughout the ranch of the saxophone.
