Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Unfiled Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

These reeds are great! When I first tried them, compared side-by-side to Rico Hemke and La Voz and Vandoren V12 and ZZ reeds, the RJS reeds seemed like they were too difficult to play, especially in the lows (even though they were slightly softer than the rest (even according to Rico's chart)), but after a few days of practice, they became my favorite of the group. Now I don't use anything else. I prefer the unfiled variety due to their slightly warmer tone than the filed ones, but the difference is minor. If you can try them both, do so, but you aren't missing too much if you can't.
They give me better lows and much better highs than other reeds of comparable strength with the easiest altissimo by far, they're extremely consistent, and they're the most tonally flexible reeds I've ever played. One of the other reviewers claimed that these reeds only last for "a gig or two", but that has been the exact opposite of my experience - I've been using the first tenor reed I tried since I got them over six months ago, playing them nearly every day for at least an hour at a time. The only ones I have lost were due to my own clumsiness. :)
My only complaint is that the strength system is a bit confusing. It isn't too hard to figure it out using the strength chart on Rico's website, but it can be easily misleading to those still learning the witchcraft behind reeds.
All things considered, I would highly recommend these to any sax player of any genre (I even use them for classical when needed).

    Excellent All Around Reed

    Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Unfiled Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

    I've been using this reed since it came out about 10 years ago. Once you are dialed into the right strength for yourself you will have a reed with incredible altissimo, a bright singing tonal quality, and good consitency. The only downside to the Jazz Select reed is that they don't last for more than a gig or two.

          After years of searching for reeds, this reed is the answer. I prefer the unfiled version as I play a large metal mouthpiece. Finest cane reed on the maeket.
