Try Rico Jazz Select 3S Unfiled. Most consistent reed I've ever played.brianincairo said:Hello.
I'm almost finished with my Rico Royal 2.5's and I'm headed over to Rayburn here in Boston at the end of the week.
I think I'm ready to move up to a #3, but I'd like to try something other than Rico. I'm ashamed to admit, I've never tried a reed that WASN'T a Rico.
I don't have a ton of money, so I want to make sure I don't waste 20.00 on a box of something I either can't play or won't like.
What do you guys recommend?
I use a Brilhart 5* (steel)(tenor). I need something, honestly, that will allow me to lay out a super-crisp upper register tone and still hit my low c#, b, and Bb...
Thank you in advance for any direction....
ps: if it's a decent brand, it doesn't HAVE to be a 3#....it could be a good 2.5...
