Rigotti Gold Tenor Sax Reeds represent the finest in precision and playability. Hand picked and precisely cut, these reeds are consistent, focused and durable. Box of 10.

The Best Cane

Ets Rigotti owes part of their reputation to their materials. The canes of the Var, and Cogolin regions of France are among the best in the world. Grown alongside rivers and streams, in an large area that is maintained all year round.

Cutting

Rigotti Gold reeds are cut during a winter afternoon over four months from December to March. When the cane has reached maturity (after two years when it measures seven to eight meters with a diameter of 26cm to 32cm), it is cut left in the open where it will be worked on. The work on the reeds is split into stages: we use a 'plumes' to dispose of all the excess and 'feathers', we only keep the 2 or 3 meters from the base (the rest is either burned or used as bamboo). Then the tubes are cut (from the base to the top), and the knots are thrown to obtain batons suited to music. This is where the true work starts, each tube is calibrated to a particular instrument. The double reeds are for the oboe and bassoon, which must be wet to be bent and attached.

        Comments about Rigotti Gold Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

        Rigotti reeds offer a excellent response, consistent tone, and can be used longer than some of the other brands I've been using. They offer subdivisions of Light, Medium, and Strong making it easier to customize your own sound beyond the numerical system. Rigotti has also changed it's packaging which is far improved from the old plastic slip covers. A great jazz reed.

        Best reed I have used in a long time. Durable consistent and overall excellent quality. Rarely a bad one in the box. Love that they come in three strengths which allow you to customize you sound.

        Excellent Choice

        Comments about Gold Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

        These reeds are an excellent choice for any player.The quality and consistency are something you can rely on. They are also very durable and will last longer than most other reeds. I like that they come in three stengths at each level, which makes it easier to customize your sound.

        Comments about Rigotti Gold Tenor Saxophone Reeds:

        Sometimes I have to settle for reeds I don't like that much, if I'm out of money and some Vandoren V16s are in the discount bin, for example.
        I have not yet tried any Rigottis beyond 3, but it may be in the cards.
        I usually get Medium instead of Strong of a lighter reed.
        I love this product, will always buy it, and recommend it to others. I don't like Rico of any kind, or Alexanders, or any of the other brands I have tried, although I can play them.
        NOTE: The difference between Rigottis and other reeds is like the difference between New Balance athletic shoes and cheap work boots. (ow.)

          Have purchased these reeds before in 2.5 Med and the reeds were cut very well. All but one reed had the hearts cut perfectly. The 3s that I received only had one reed with the heart cut correctly.
