Unprecedented Tone, Flexibility and Response
The Rico Select Jazz cut yields excellent projection and a clear, fat tone by virtue of its well-defined heart and longer vamp. Other characteristics of this reed are its great flexibility and fast response. This reed is available with or without a French file (please note, this item listing is for the unfiled verson). 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 charactersitic is an attribute or a detriment, or as to whether that is even an accurate characterization is ultimately up to the individual player. Maybe it's worth rolling the dice and getting a box, just in case the unfiled sound and feel is exactly what you're looking for.
