OVERVIEW

Thick blank with great sound.

The D'Addario Reserve is a thick blank reed that offers a rich, warm tone, a heavy spine that promotes dynamic flexibility and exceptional tone quality in all registers, a narrow rail slope to produce consistency of response, and a traditional tip thickness for ease of articulation. Reserve reeds are crafted using naturally-grown cane from D'Addario's own foreign fields. D'Addario has pioneered the first practical and precise system to digitally measure and cut the incredibly complex geometrical patterns necessary to re-invent single reeds. Reserve reeds are cut to the tightest tolerances, offering the most consistent performance.

Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Reserve Alto Saxophone Reeds 10 Pack:

These reeds have a "Very" strong heart. If you use a Vandorven reed go down 1 full strength. For regular Rico it's probably 1 1/2

A great product for professionals and students.

Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Reserve Alto Saxophone Reeds 10 Pack:

I began playing these reeds a couple years back and haven't ever considered changing to another reed. They play right out of the box and I can easily get 8 out 10 in a box to be "performance reeds" and the other two just need a bit of adjustment and they are just as good. High quality product!

A great reed from a brand that is constantly improving!

Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Reserve Alto Saxophone Reeds 10 Pack:

I have been a d'Addario performing artist for over 5 years and I have immensely enjoyed playing these reeds. I find them to be much more consistent than the competition and way more cost-effective: when you can play all the reeds right out of box (instead of just the 1-2 "best" reeds out of 10 that the other manufacturers seem to go for) I think they are priced very reasonably! It has been amazing to see just how much d'Addario has invested in their products the past few years. They made significant improvements to the Rico line of reeds, investing millions of dollars into new reed-manufacturing technology before recently rebranding to d'Addario Woodwinds. If you haven't given them a try lately, I urge you to do so: this is an American, family-owned company that listens intently to their customers, and has shown dedication to making the best quality products for performing musicians.

Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Reserve Alto Saxophone Reeds 10 Pack:

These reeds work great! The response and the tone that you can get from them are awesome! Comparing these to Vandoren Blue Box's where as you would only get 2 or 3 good reeds in a good box, all of these seem to be great. I am using the 3.0's on a Vandoren AL3 and I love them.

Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Reserve Alto Saxophone Reeds 10 Pack:

Finally! A consistent and great-playing alternative to Vandorens. These reeds are absolutely great for classical playing. The 3.0+ strength works very well with my Vandoren AL3.
