OVERVIEW

Unprecedented tone, flexibility and response.

Select Jazz reeds feature the thickest spine and blank of D'Addario's jazz reeds, with a traditional tip shape. The Select Jazz cut offers great projection, focus and a vibrant sound. They are available in both filed and unfiled models. The debate rages on in saxophone forums all across the web. Filed, or unfiled? The conventional wisdom is that the unfiled are a little less bright, but that they can be pushed to achieve the brightness they fail to display right out of the gate. As to whether that characteristic is an attribute or a detriment, or as to whether that is even an accurate characterization is ultimately up to the individual player. Offered in third strengths, rather than half strengths, so players can choose the most precise strength for their individual equipment.

FEATURES
Outstanding control and projection
Available in both Filed and Unfiled models for the full range of saxophones
Available in third strengths (soft, medium, and hard) from 2.0 to 4.0

I've Purchased my share of reeds, trying to look for the right tone (Alexander Superial D.C., Vanduren Java, Rico Royal, LaVoz, Hemke, even Roberto's Winds) needless to say, I spent a fortune looking for the right reed. I think these reeds offer the highest quality sound and versatility, hands down. I purchased a box 4M and was first surprised by the range I was able to achieve. The quality cane and larger heart allowed me to play for an extended length of time while still maintaining a constant tone, that is to say other reeds may tend to soften up and dull out midway during a set, leaving you with that muffled dull sound. I am now having no problem easing the low register out during a ballad, achieving that fat robust sound, or getting a nice bright sound in any range. I also found it easier to get that "Coltrane" scream up in the altissimo. Although reeds are all preference, It would be a smart choice to try these out if your still looking for the right match. I found the reeds that I will use for a while, and I'm no longer buying boxes of reeds that I'm not happy with.

Rico Jazz Selects are good reeds. However i have noticed significant quality control issues with the reeds. I will get one box and it will have 4-5 great ones, and the next box will have 5 reeds that are warped, and inconsistent strengths. I have had to switch reeds from rico in order to save money.

    Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Filed Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

    When I was first informed that D'Addario improved the Select Jazz reeds from Rico, I didn't think that much would change..... I was dead wrong. I remember trying the Select Jazz from Rico about 5 years ago and they were some of the worst reeds that I have ever played on. I would definitely say that D'Addario did a great job on improving the quality of these reeds. The reeds gave my saxophone a more full sound when I was playing with my Otto Link HR 7*, and my Otto Link Metal NY 7*. However, I would prefer the unfiled reeds over the filed because the unfiled have a darker sound than the filed. But overall, I was very shocked after playing these reeds and I am glad that I decided to try them out.

        Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Filed Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

        I liked these reeds better when they were Rico jazz select. I usually can find 2-3 good playable reeds out of a box of 5 with the D'Addario filed cut. I have to adjust most of them. I use 220 wet or dry sandpaper.
        My last box shipped with 2 cracked reeds. wwbw took care of me on that and it is appreciated.
        Reed quality in general has degraded over the last few years. I miss the days when I could walk into a music store and you could look through open boxes and choose the best reeds.

        When I find a reed that works it lasts for a reasonable amount of time. Also, those with good cane seem to respond well to clipping and other measures to prolong use.

        I use 2 soft Select filed D'Addario. I can tell as soon as I put the reed on my mouthpiece if it will be a good reed - Mouthpiece is Berg Larson metal. When I get a good reed, it is great - I can hit Bb without strain. I have used Rico Royals for many years and now I am going back.

          I've used these reeds for a few years. I am now on the search to find something else. I've always had problems with having a bad reed here and there, but in the last 3 boxes I've bought, I've gotten a total of 4 good reeds, a few that could not be used, and several that were useable although not great. I believe I just bought my last box of these after such a bad problem with inconsistency over the last few months.

          The Rico Jazz #3 tenor reeds are perfect for me.

          I play on an Otto Link #10 metal, and a Dolnet Convair tenor sax from 1968.

          In summer I use the filed, in winter I tend to use the unfiled, as the weather is drier and filed reeds seem harder.

            Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Filed Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

            These select jazz reeds really are the best. I use them for bebop and hard bop styles, and they perform exceptionally well in all ranges of the instrument, especially the altissimo register. The tone is a tad much to work with, but with longtones, and proper embouchure and breathing exercises, you can become another Coleman Hawkins! Great reeds.
