Comments about Rigotti Hot and Swing Reeds for Bb Clarinet:
These reeds are typically very good and reliable with at least 75% playable right out of the box. Unfortunately, they tend to get chipped easily because they are just crammed into a tiny box with a few pieces of paper and thin sponge material between. Wish they would learn from Vandoren about how to package the reeds. Would be well worth a little extra money.
