Cane D'Addario Woodwinds Reeds
If you're an experienced woodwind musician, then you already know that cane reeds are available in different strengths numbered from 1 to 5 (soft to hard). The right strength for you will depend on a few factors, including the mouthpiece it's matched with. For example, mouthpieces with wider tip openings and shorter facing curves tend to work best with softer reeds while longer faced mouthpieces with narrow tip openings are great with harder reeds. It's also recommended that younger beginners start with a soft or medium-sized reed since they're easier to play. With all this being said, there are no right or wrong answers when it comes to reeds and in the end it will be a matter of personal preference and what suits your musical application.
Of course, you will need to choose a D'Addario Woodwinds cane reed pack that matches your woodwind instrument. For example, if you're a jazz tenor saxophonist, check out the Select Jazz Unfiled Tenor Saxophone Reeds. Offered in third strengths, these cane reeds have excellent projection and deliver a focused sound. Or, if you're an alto saxophonist, there's the Select Jazz Filed Alto Saxophone Reeds. These reeds are also offered in third strengths and are known for their amazing control and vibrant tone. Now, for all you Bb clarinetists, try the Reserve Classic Bb Clarinet Reeds 10-Pack. These thick blank reeds produce a rich, warm sound and have a heavy spine for dynamic flexibility. Perfect for advancing and professional performers alike, you'll notice a huge enhancement in the quality of your clarinet tone when you're playing with one of these expertly designed reeds.
And there are other D'Addario Woodwinds cane reeds here as well, including for baritone and soprano saxophone players. When you get right down to it, D'Addario and Rico are two names that have sterling reputations in the music world for a reason. So, it only makes sense that magic would happen when the two partnered up to make cane reeds for anyone who takes their woodwind performance seriously.
