Nice Steve, you made me laugh out loud.Nefertiti said:I have a case of vintage Rico's. I'll let them go for 200.00 a box. these are not like the reeds of today. These reeds were made from cane from the Swiss alps.
This area was devastated in WWII and all the cane destroyed. Some people think this cane vibrates better because the cane while growing was continually pounded by bombs which got the young cane molecules use to vibrating. Good Luck finding these anywhere else. Each reed has that vintage green tint to it but these are guaranteed to be unused. I have 2 special boxes that I sent to Hans Joehanson who refaced all of them so they are in optimum playing condition.

He plays Rico Plasticover and told me that he went through like 20 of them before he picked the one he played on. It's a good thing he gets them free!!!!!!!!!! But seriously I can't believe how great he sounds on those reeds. I can't believe how great he sounds on any reed the cat flat out is a tenor monster.
