After 75 years of reed-making expertise, Rico considers their Reserve reeds the finest they have made. Rico Reserve Classic Alto Saxophone Reeds offer sax players reeds in strengths from 2.0 to 4.5, making them the first line of reeds available in a strength exceeding 3.0.
Rico has chosen to use only high-density lower-internode cane-the most consistent part of the cane—for their Reserve Classic Alto Saxophone reeds. The technology involved in producing the alto sax reeds is notably advanced, involving precision natural diamond cutters, optical laser measurements, color video inspection, and state-of-the-art polishing.
The resulting reeds exhibit improved durability, consistent quality, extremely accurate dimensions, and ultra-smooth surfaces. To assure that your reeds arrive unscathed, Rico packs them in Reed Vitalizer™ 2-way humidity controlled packs, so you'll never get a cracked Reserve Classic reed.
Starting with a thicker blank, finished Rico Reserve Classic reeds profile delivers more resonation as well as a more flexibility than standard alto saxophone reeds. Reserve Classic reeds were developed based on feedback from performers. Rico Product Manager, Robert Polan says, "The new reeds are extremely durable, produce a fantastic tone, and have been receiving an exceptional amount of acclaim from many established saxophone players."
Artists are already expressing enthusiasm for Rico Reserve Classic reeds. Jeffrey J. Loeffert of the h2 Quartet says the alto saxophone reeds "allow us to perform broad dynamic ranges, project in expressive passages, and facilitate our ability to blend." He adds, "Whether performing traditional saxophone quartet music or cutting-edge contemporary repertoire, Rico Reserve reeds provide us with exceptional reliability, response, and resonance."
Dave Camwell, Assistant Professor of Saxophone and Jazz Studies at Simpson College says, "Rico's new line of classical reeds gives the performer total confidence on stage. The response, warmth of sound, or clarity of tone is simply sensational. I find the new Reserve Classic reeds to be in a league of their own."
