Great reeds!

Comments about Rico Grand Concert Select Thick Blank Bb Clarinet Reeds:

Great reeds- very consistent, nice longevity, resonant tone, very responsive. I find most all of the reeds work great right out of the box with little or no work.I often have these and some other brands in my reed case and more often than not, these are the ones that get played in the rehearsals and concert. I have played or tried most all of the reeds available and find these are just about the best I have ever played. Very simply- they play!

The Best Sound ... for Me

By 

from Culver City CA

Comments about Rico Grand Concert Select Thick Blank Bb Clarinet Reeds:

I have used #3.5 for years and they give me the sound I want on clarinet. To me, these reeds are described perfectly: better sound definition, more centered tone. But it turns out, not all clarinet players think that is the "proper" sound for a clarinet. I took lesson with a very good classical player and he said "Whoa, high notes are too shrill, too shreiky." So he gave me a VanDoren Blue Box 4.0 he played. I have to admit, the high notes had a certain dark luster, but the middle and low notes seemed dull and diffuse to me, without projection, color or flexibility. He said, "That's much better. That's the way a clarinet should sound." So, go figure. I enjoy the way I sound using GCS TB, and sound production is good, relatively effortless and consistency is excellent.

Consistant quality

Comments about Rico Grand Concert Select Thick Blank Bb Clarinet Reeds:

I find these reeds to be the most consistent of all. I usually have to work on a reed before I can say that it works flawlessly but on these, I can just use them right out of the box. Not every single reed is usable but surely a lot more reeds per box are considered "good" by me. If you combine these reeds with the right mouthpiece, (I use them with a Ridenour MT36 and a Mitchell Lurie Premium) you will notice that they do have a centered quality that lets you express yourself with less fear of the reed closing up on you because you over blew a little or squeaking right when you hoped you would not. Well worth the price.
