Nice reeds

By 

from Memphis TN

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Fairly Cost Effective
  • Fairly Fast Break-in
  • Nice Sound

Cons

  • Wear Out Fairly Quickly

Best Uses

    Comments about Rico Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds:

    I've been using these reeds for several years, alternating with Fibracells, which I think may last longer. I get a nice loud sound, very responsive when broken in.

    Perfect for the worst of both worlds.

    Comments about Rico Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds:

    Others rave about these reeds, but they don't do it for me. I thought I might try them on bari. Because they are still cane inside, they still act like cane, as inconsistent as any other reed. A good Plasticover sounds good, though, as good as any cane reed. After a short time, the plastic coating wears off, changing the way it plays. I was happier sticking with Rico Royals. The idea behind the Plasticover seems antiquated, as modern synthetics keep improving.

    Not what I expected

    Comments about Rico Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds:

    Because I only play Bari a few times a month I wanted some reeds that would last. These do seem to hold up fine, however, the sound is hollow. Also, the black coating on the reeds actually comes off when playing, so there's bits of black stuff on your lip. I know that's not really functionality, but it's just doesn't seem very well thought out. So basically, keep on looking for plastic reeds, these are sub-par

    Amazing reeds for doubling

    By 

    from Staunton ,Va

    Site Member

    Comments about Rico Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds:

    I play in a wide variety of groups that demand baritone saxophone on the gig. While gigging Soprano, Alto, and Tenor, I've found that with doubling on bari sax, these reeds are my saving grace. They play great out of the box and last about 2 months of constant playing (about 3 times a week for 2-3 hours), have great response, and good tone. They don't quite have the tonal center of natural cane, but if you're playing outside or not honking a bari solo on every chart, they're great. Another great thing is that if you've got a more mellow mouthpiece, these reeds will brighten up your sound. All in all, they're the best reeds you can buy if you have to play outdoors, in changing humidity, or need reeds for instruments you only play 5 or 6 times a night.

    Rico Plasticover bari sax reeds provide excellent consistenc

    By 

    from Willington, Connecticut

    Site Member

    Comments about Rico Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds:

    I have been using the Rico Plasticover baritone saxophone reeds for about three years and am still playing from the original box. The reeds are consistent, do not warp, and give a good sound. I play Bari sax in a big band, and I find that I can pick up the horn after a break and have no problem getting the same sound as when I was warmed up. The low notes speak fine, and I am able to play soft dynamics without a problem. I don't even carry other reeds anymore, as I am able to play the same reed as the previous time I played. The first two reeds lasted about a year each (I play a couple of times a month), and I will continue to use them.
