Recommended Accessories

Rigotti Gold Tenor 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.

My usual reed is a Rico 2.5 on my MK VI tenor saxophone with a vintage metal FL Otto Link 8*. They play great for me, nice sound, nice edge and nice sub tone. But they usually do not last more than 1 or 2 gigs. Because I do a lot of combo work and I'm the only horn I play a lot on my gigs. I have been looking for an alternative for quite a while. I think I finally found it. The Rigotti Gold reeds have every bit the sound, edge, sub tone etc that the Ricos have. They feel a little bit tougher. We'll see, I have some gigs in early Feb and I'll try them out and see how they do. One thing, because I play a Rico 2.5 I tried a Rigotti 2.5 med first. It was way too soft. Then I tried a 2.5 hard, almost, but still a bit too soft; however I could tell that the sound was right. Okay dare I pop for another box; I did, and tried a Rigotti 3 light. That did it. Out of 10 reeds, nine were winners with 1 reed being a bit too hard. The other eight were either right on target or with just lowering the tip of the reed slightly below the tip of the mpc they were right on. I'll let them settle a bit and see if they need adjusting in a few days. Meanwhile if you are looking for a different reed to try, give these a try. Just remember to up your reed strength a bit if you play a Rico product right now. One other thing, because they are French I wasn't sure if they would produce a jazz sound, but you know what, they do. So I would say that I basically agree with the other guy who reviewed these reeds. Gee, I wonder how their clarinet reeds compare to Vandoren V-12's? Anyone out try that experiment yet?

When I first discovered Rigotti's a few years ago, they were the best reeds that I could remember buying. High percentage of good sounding and playing reeds. Now they have fallen back into the pack of "Hope there is a good reed in this box."

    Comments about Rigotti Gold Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

    I started using Rigotti reeds about 10 years ago. At that time, they were the best reed on the market. Now they are, unfortunately, the same as the rest - maybe one or two out of a box that are actually usable in a professional setting.

      Comments about Rigotti Gold Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

      I was playing Vandoren V16 reeds, which were ok. I would get two or three good reeds out of a box of 5. So far every reed from the Rigotti Gold box has been a good one. I am very happy with these reeds. I also like that they give you a box of 10 appose to a box of 5, that also saves me time and money.

          I had been playing D'Addario Jazz Select Tenor reeds which were just getting worse and worse. Out of 2 boxes I'd get maybe 2-3 functional reeds while the others would need work. These Rigottis have really changed all of that. I no longer have to work on my reeds because the Rigottis come out consistent and are ready to go straight from the box.

                Comments about Rigotti Gold Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

                The Rigotti 3-medium tenor sax reeds are some of the best I've tried. They produce a very clean, clear tone for jazz and are "hearty" enough for raspy rock 'n roll. Since I play more rock than jazz I'll probably by a slightly stiffer reed next time. But I would recommend Rigotti to any sax player.
