Three reasons I play D'Addario reeds: beautiful tonal warmth, depth of sound, and instant playability. I go into the recording studio with a new box of reeds, play through just a few and I'm ready to record! 

A D'Addario Woodwinds player since 1979.

Greg Fishman is a D’Addario Woodwind artist and plays Rico reeds exclusively. “...His solos are shrewdly conceived yet delivered with apparent ease and elegance. He develops harmonies that sometimes startle the ear as he forges lines that take unexpected twists and turns...” –– Chicago Tribune “Greg Fishman dares to explore new musical heights. Every lesson in Greg’s books is a must for all musicians, and this latest book is no exception. Greg, you’ve done a beautiful, musical thing again!” –– James Moody
