    +More Info

My Mitchell Lurie reeds give me the support I need to produce powerful statements with my clarinet.  Mitchell Lurie gives me the control and warm sound I desire. It is my favorite reed.


The Reserve Classic cut is great!  It gives me the power I'm looking for without making me bite so hard that I loose my endurance.

A D'Addario Woodwinds player since 1980.
