      I have stayed with Royals for all these years. I notice that the latest box has dropped the name RICO.
      I hope the quality has not changed.

        Ordered for my son, who is in band and jazz band these are great reeds for everything but concerts, but can be used as a back up if necessary. Notes played at high volume get distorted so not the best reed for large halls or venues.

                I play in a community concert band and have tried several different brands and sizes of reed and found the rico royal reeds to be the best i have found. they are easy to use and has improved my sound a great deal. even some of my fellow musicians have noticed and some have asked if i got a new horn. wish i would have discovered them sooner

                  Comments about Rico Royal Tenor Saxophone Reeds, Box of 10:

                  I use several different reeds for the given situation. I use Rico Hemke reeds for wind ensemble, Vandorean Java for Jazz band and sax quartet, and Rico Royal for marching. The Royals are by far the best for marching. They come in large boxes so you have spare yet they dont break as often as other reeds. They also have a sound that can be used for anything. They arnt the cheapest reeds but nowhere near the most expensive, again perfect for marching.

                    I just bought these reeds and I love them. Before i bought these, I used the reeds our school provided but I decided i wanted to get something better. I had looked in other stores but they were too expensive. I found this website and it offered them at a fair price so I bought them. I don't regret this purchase and neither will you.

                          I resumed playing tenor and alto sax after a long break, and the Rico reeds I purchased made my comeback as easy as possible. The price here on Musician's Friend was also the best I could find.

                            I have been using Rico Royal since college (masters in music performance) and even though I always used a #5 and now 35 years later use a #3.5, I still find the R.R. to give the best overall performance. The altissio register and the low Bb respond great while the consistency in between is always there. My friend "Boots Randolph" used the regular rico in a 2.5 and depending on the gig I do often times follow his advice regarding the reed, but I still love the performance for the R.R. 3.5 overall. A reed you can depend on! K.B. of Birmingham, Al
