Comments about Rico Reserve Tenor Saxophone Reeds:
I am still a cane reed musician after many years of playing. I play a Cannonball Excalibur Tenor and a Big Bell Alto. I have several mouthpieces and use the Cannonball mostly on my Tenor. I use a #2 and found it to perform fantastic for me. It gives me the range performance in most all the music I play, from high F to low B flat. I can tell the difference that using the Reserve makes in playing.
On my Alto I am using a Northway mouthpiece and a #2 1/2 Reserve. I also find that the Reserve does what I need with it on my Alto. I do have a few other reeds I have tried, but the other do not seem to do as good of a job in range and sound.
The Rico Reserve Reeds are great for me.
