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:

      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.

        Comments about Rigotti Gold Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

        I've been playing for 50 years. Was raised on Rico and Rico Royal. I've played those for the last 48 or so years while occasionally going on a reed hunt looking for something better and could never ever find it because Rico 's had that certain characteristic ( tonal/ resonance/response) that no other reed had that I needed and wanted. Like the line in the Movie "Round Midnight" There's nothin' better than Good Rico Reed. Well, that was until I tried Rigotti Gold for tenor sax. For me it's got that characteristic that I need that the Rico has, but just seems to have better quantity of quality per box. I use 2.5 strong on a Dukoff D9*. Over the last couple of years I've been transitioning from Rico's to Rigotti Golds entirely for tenor. Right now they seem to be a bit less expensive. Have the Rico character that I need and really last a good long time.

        This is the best reed I've ever played. I ordered the #3 light and was blown away. Looking forward to trying #2.5 hard to compare the two. Can't imagine the #2.5 strong playing better.

            I bought the 2.5 strength.If you normally play 2.5 stay with the same strength. Out of a box of 10, six played well, which is good for wooden reeds. The reeds give me a full sound, lots of overtones and they are relatively easy to produce the sound that I'm looking for in all registers. I feel they are worth the price.

              The best size for jazz playing is 3L.
              These are similar to the Queen reeds of the same mfg. The sub categories make for a better cut in the gold's.
