These reeds are a good value for students and amateurs. While they are not the most durable, they have a very good tone. Because they are relatively cheap, you don't need to panic when you destroy one by bumping the mouthpiece into the music stand. You can can always keep a few on hand as backups. I've never had one crack unless I did something to provoke it. Don't let them dry completely out (only a problem in low humidity), and the last quite well.

Previously, I was using an inexpensive reed that would deteriorate quickly and start squeaking. The Rico's are better in that respect, but I think they sound a little harsher. Maybe that's the trade off: more durable is also more harsh. I'm still using the original mouthpiece that came with the instrument and it seems to be kind of cheap. Next step is a decent mouthpiece. I'll try the different brands then against each other on a good mouthpiece. I'm a novice and we have a learning process here.

    My teenage daughter uses these reeds for her clarinet. It is not a fancy instrument, but she plays in her high school wind ensemble and these reeds seem to get the job done.
