            I jumped to these reeds in eighth grade and haven't found anything else I've liked as much as these. They are great and very versatile, from high school concert band to college marching band. While not the world's most durable reeds, they are definitely worth every penny.

            Good entry level reed. Reeds are very personal. It's what you like and what is
            Playable for you. I get a good sound out of the Rico, I get a great sound out of
            Vandoren Java. Try different one until you find what best for you. GOMF.

                Purchased these as a step up from the standard Rico reeds and was impressed. Slightly more expensive but well worth the cost. Will buy from Musician's Friend again.

                I buy these for my son. They are one of two brands his band teacher recommends for her students. I like the price tag and my son is satisfied with the reeds.

                  Comments about Rico Royal Alto Saxophone Reeds:

                  I highly recommend this brand reeds.
                  I've been playing alto sax for a little over a year now. As one develops their ability to play the sax, you'll find yourself going up in the number rating of the reeds. These reeds are easy to work with.
                  I consider the Rico brand to be a quality product.
                  Can't beat the price for the value. Musician's Friend blows away any store bought price for these reeds any day!

                  I Have been playing for about 3 years and I have always used these types of reeds for my alto sax these are amazing for any sax player but its what ever fit your style I like to play loud and don't like a scratchy sound I would recommend these reeds.
