Recommended Accessories

Rigotti Gold Alto Sax Reeds represent the finest in precision and playability. Hand picked and precisely cut, these reeds are consistent, focused and durable. Box of 10.

The Best Cane

Ets Rigotti owes part of their reputation to their materials. The canes of the Var, and Cogolin regions of France are among the best in the world. Grown alongside rivers and streams, in an large area that is maintained all year round.

Cutting

Rigotti Gold reeds are cut during a winter afternoon over four months from December to March. When the cane has reached maturity (after two years when it measures seven to eight meters with a diameter of 26cm to 32cm), it is cut left in the open where it will be worked on. The work on the reeds is split into stages: we use a 'plumes' to dispose of all the excess and 'feathers', we only keep the 2 or 3 meters from the base (the rest is either burned or used as bamboo). Then the tubes are cut (from the base to the top), and the knots are thrown to obtain batons suited to music. This is where the true work starts, each tube is calibrated to a particular instrument. The double reeds are for the oboe and bassoon, which must be wet to be bent and attached.

Wonderful Reeds

By

Comments about Rigotti Gold Alto Saxophone Reeds:

The Rigotti Gold Alto reeds are the only reeds I trust for jazz playing! They have a wonderful creamy tone to them, and respond very well! They play well, high registers included, and while they aren't the loudest reeds the tone they produce is stunning. Worth every penny I paid!

Very clear, smooth sound

By

Comments about Rigotti Gold Alto Saxophone Reeds:

In my opinion, Vandoren reeds are much better than rico reeds. Javas are better than traditionals. Red box is better than blue box. Rigotti gold is better than all of them. Way more reliable. Smoother, softer tone, much better sound in general. And on top of all this, they're cheaper! Would recommend to any other alto sax players, probably tenor too but i haven't tried the tenor reeds. Really great reed, great quality.

very deep and rice tone quality

Comments about Rigotti Gold Alto Saxophone Reeds:

At first, I was very content with my vandoren zz's, but my friend recommended that I try these, and so I bought a box hoping they would be as amazing as she said they were. As soon as I got them in the mail, I tried them out. I played for a little while on one and I fell in love. The tone on these reeds in magnificent. :) It's so rich, and warm, and it has so much depth. They have a very open tone, and I just love them! I think everyone needs to try a box of these. They sound great, and have pretty good consistency. I don't think I've gotten a bad one yet. :)

I've fallen in love!

Comments about Rigotti Gold Alto Saxophone Reeds:

I wrote a review a few days ago about Vandoren Java Red cut alto saxophone reeds and how amazing they are and how they're the best reeds I've ever used. I take that statement back. I got my Rigotti reeds late in my shipment so I didn't try them out alongside the other reeds I had ordered. I got the package today and opened the box, grabbed one reed out and started playing some jazz. The one word I have to say to describe it was WOW! The reed is light, yet smooth, deep, dark, and delicious in tone. I haven't had a reed that responded as well as a Rigotti Gold reed. Anybody shopping for a fantastic reed - search no more! Rigotti Golds are the way to go. Don't waste your money on a box of Rico reeds...go for the real prize winner - Rigotti.

Comments about Rigotti Gold Alto Saxophone Reeds:

I first knew about Rigotti from the now discontinued Queen reed. They were a cheaper and unfilled version of the Rigotti Golds.

among the best reeds

By 

from gainesville.fl

Comments about Rigotti Gold Alto Saxophone Reeds:

There are only a few reeds I would recommend either to professionals or my students. Rigotti is one of those reeds. Typically you play a half strength greater than what you normally do even though the cane is very dense on these reeds. You will get more per box that play with Rigotti than just about any other reed. Fuller, larger, and clearer tone plus greater ease of intonation, not to mention lasting longer, Rigotti can't be beat.

Rigotti gives sax players the freedom of brass players

By 

from Central United States

Site Member

Comments about Rigotti Gold Alto Saxophone Reeds:

They are very good reeds, possible the very best, and I have yet to find a reed that even consistantly rises to their level. Don't waste your money on other reeds. Buy the best. Whether a beggining sax player or a college proffesor, try Rigotti.

Pretty Decent Stuff

By 

from Los Angeles, CA, US

Site Member

Comments about Rigotti Gold Alto Saxophone Reeds:

Someone gave me one of these to try out a few days ago. It had a very nice creamy response compared to my Java, and let me get a lovely tone as well. I plan on getting a box as well, and he tells me you can get a good 6-8 good reeds out of a box. I can't wait to get it all broken in; I can already tell it is going to play extremely well.
