I haven't used these reeds myself, but my sax teacher plays on them and really says good things about their consistency. He can just pull a reed out of the box, subk on it for a few minutes, and it's good to go. I'm thinking of ordering a box myself next time the need for reeds arrives.

Yes Rigottis are cheaper than Alexanders. At wwbw Rigotti tenors are $26.99 for a box of ten. Alexaners range from $20.99 to 24.99 for a box of five.

These are really nice reeds. The sizing is a little different (Light, Med. Hard for every size). The sound is nice and buttery,full and clean. They are more expensive, but very consistent and long lasting. Roberto's Winds carries them.

What strength in Rigotti Gold would match 3.5 Java for alto? They sound interesting but I 've wasted lots of money trying new brands over the years with strength differences.

Rigotti reeds alto and tenor reeds are available at wwbw. For some reason,if you only click on the alto reeds or tenor reeds link on the front page of their web site,only about half of the available products are displayed. If you type "alto sax reeds" or "tenor sax reeds" in the search box,a complete list will be displayed. The same goes for mouthpieces.

Does anyone know if these reeds are still in boxes of ten. The wwbw site says that they are,but the prices listed seem too good to be true. $21.59 for tenor and $20.00 for alto. That's about the same as OB ricos. I wasn't considering using these reeds again right now,but at those prices,I might have to think again.

I ordered Tenor reeds from wwbw 2 months ago and still waiting for them. Certain sizes are sometime hard to get. wwbw are the cheapest I've found but you have wait forever. Roberto's has a good selection, but cost $41/box.

I have played Rigotti Gold's extensively and recommend them highly. Robertos "house" reeds and Francois Louis are made by Rigotti, so they are of the same quality with slightly different characteristics.

Rigottis can be very hard to find. Woodwind and Brasswind has the best price, but their supply is inconsistent. This may be because Rigotti also makes Roberto's private label and Francois Louis'. Or not. They are very well made and extremely consistent. Some of us think they are the best reed out there. ( the Roberto's and FL's are also real good). They are different from Javas, ZZs, LaVoz, Alexander etc. so they may or may not work with a given mouthpiece or for an individual player...

Could anyone be able to tell me how the strength relates to La Voz tenor reeds - or Van Doren? I play La Voz medium hard. Mike, you wrote it some time ago, you had these #3 reeds. Could you compare them to a strength in other reeds. And if they're still available I would be interested. But shipping 3 reeds to Amsterdam is a bit too silly.

Just had a scare concerning these reeds. The place where I normally buy my sax accessories told me that Rigotti Reeds were going out of production. The store's computer stated that they were being discontinued and the person on the phone interpreted that as being production for these reeds was ending.

After more web surfing and calls I found that to Not be the case!! Whew!!! I just started getting into these reeds; spent days trying to decide on a strength for my horns and then to get That kind of mis-information?!?!?!

Ok, I'm fine now..... Rant has ended.....

PEACE...... Shalom.....
