          Comments about Rico Plasticover Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

          If you are playing a lot of rock & roll style gigs and need some extra volume these reeds can help get you there. The coating also helps to produce a little of the gritty tone and edge that fits well in the rock/funk style. And some jazz players also like the results. I do not recommend them for concert band. You might want to buy several boxes at a time because the % of reeds that respond real good can be limited in any one box. This of course is no different than any brand of reed since it is natural cane. I have also tried the various synthetic reeds for the rock gig but have never played one that produces the tone that I prefer for this work. All in all a good reed for a little extra volume and a brighter tone.

            Comments about Rico Plasticover Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

            These do not seem to cause the bad (real bad) breath I get from cane reeds. I am thrilled with the ease of use, very satisfactory tone, and drability. I have played for more than forty years and these reeds encourage me to practice more.

            Durable and can play anywhere

            By Mike65

            from Rosemead, CA (Los Angeles)

            Comments about Rico Plasticover Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

            I used to use Hemke Premium exclusively for years. Rico Plasticover Tenor Sax reeds play well and don't need to be wet. I am a lead singer and sax player. I need to be able to put down the horn to sing and then pick it back up without any time to wet my reed. I can pick up the horn, even in the dessert, and get a great tone. Don't try that with cane. Plasticover reeds feel more like cane than the purely plastic reeds I've tried. I can't get the nuances from plasticover as I can from pure cane, but for club playing they work well. Still use Hempke for concert band and classical playing, but for rock and jazz I use plasticover.
            It is a plastic covered reed.

            Plasticover Reeds

            By Kyle Andraschko

            Comments about Rico Plasticover Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

            Worth the money
            I just started using these reeds the other day and wow, these things are amazing. It amplifies the Tenor's sound so nicely. Not to mention that they are strong and durable. I use these both for concert and marching. I can't wait to try them out for jazz. If your thinking about trying these out, just give them a try. You wont regret it.

            Comments about Rico Plasticover Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

            Ricos Plasticover reeds are some of the best that I've found. I played in a marching band and noticed how simple it is to not have to wet my reed before playing. I highly recomend them.

            most versatile reed for tenor

            By jazzguymike

            from KC Missouri

            Comments about Rico Plasticover Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

            Big tenor sound. These are also very durable and last much longer than traditional reeds. Once you get used to the feel you won't go back to other reeds.
