    Comments about Rico Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds:

    I am 72 and have played sax since I was 9. Alto has always been my primary and my double is Bari. Love a good Tenor or Soprano but have never even owned one.

    I have played Rico Plasticover for about 50 years now and just don't like anything else. Mouthpiece is a Dukoff D9 (same mouthpiece Boots Randolph played on his Tenor). I'm playing 3.5 reeds now and some take a lot of breaking in.

    I'm actually a product of the first Rock generation, having turned pro at 15 in 1956. I came out of the Dale Hawkins "Suzy Q" band in Shreveport, Louisiana. Also was Mickey Gilley's first saxman.

      • Backup
      • Party Band Music

      Comments about Rico Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds:

      I use these reeds on a tenor sax mouthpiece for several reasons; volume, flexibility for gliss's, lip bends, and a brighter tone for what I am playing these days. This reed can produce a sweet sound for ballad work but the value is in the edge that it produces for "party music" at wedding reception dances, club work and jam sessions. The oversized reed will produce a fatter subtone and more than average volume.

      Most Durable Cane Reed I've Ever Used

      By Charles Burton

      from New Mexico USA

      Comments about Rico Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds:

      I've played Rico reeds on tenor and baritone saxes for over 40 years. I started using Rico's Plasticover reeds a few years ago and have found them to be very consistent in quality and controllable while playing. The Plasticover reeds last at least 5 times longer than standard reeds. Here in the dry climate of New Mexico, standard reeds become warped after a few sessions and have to be replaced. I have Plasticover reeds on my tenors and baritone that have been played for over 20 sessions in a 6 month period. They're not showing any signs of giving up yet! I have tried synthetic reeds and just couldn't get used to them. I came back to the Plasticovers and consider them to have the playability of a natural reed, coupled with durability approaching that of a synthetic.

      Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds

      Comments about Rico Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds:

      Also use them on tenor and alto. No they do not give a real full tone/core like cane but for the gigs that I am doing they are good.
      For doubling on bari you can't beat them. Always ready to play when you pick up the horn. And if you are playing a lot of rock, Motown, etc, the sound is there especially if you use a wide tip m/p and a softer reed!
      Like all reeds, some great, some not so great when you buy a box.

      They work great for me!

      By Henry Ward

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Rico Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds:

      I have been using Plasticover reeds for about 2 years now. I switch between Baritone and Alto saxes. The reeds give me a clear and powerfull projection. They also last quite well from my experiences, as long as any other reeds I have tried. I have not liked the synthetic reeds that I have tried.

      Lots of pro's use Plasticovers

      By bluesax

      from San Francisco, CA

      Comments about Rico Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds:

      I just read the review above and I had to respond. That review is crap. Plasticovers last much longer than plain cane reeds. That's one of the main reasons for using them. I've been playing them on tenor and bari for a few years. I tried all the cane reeds and all the synthetics and finally settled on Plasticovers. Lots of pro's use them. Go to Sax On The Web forum and search on Plasticovers. You'll see that many players swear by 'em. And I've never heard anybody complain that they don't last.

      What a nice sound...

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Rico Plasticover Baritone Saxophone Reeds:

      I bought these at my local music store. I thought, hey, I'll try these out. Sounds like a cool idea. when I got to my rehersal, I put it on my saxophone, and played just one note, and the sound was beautiful... but before the end of the rehersal, it was worn out, it barely played. It was like having a small piece of paper on my saxophone. It's nice that you don't have to get it wet to put it on, but please, don't buy this unless you want to replace your reeds every other day.
