It didn't take long to realize how good D'Addario reeds are. Back in 2011, when I first tried Reserve Classic, I immediately noticed their fantastic sound qualities combined with great consistency. Since then D'Addario reeds became an important part of my professional life.

Vienna-based saxophonist Michał Knot was born in Poland in 1987. As a member of FIVE SAX, Duo Aliada and the Vienna Saxophonic Orchestra, he has established himself as one of the most versatile saxophonists of his generation.

With the cross-over band FIVE SAX, he tours the world playing classical, film, folk, jazz and pop music while showcasing his natural talent for acting.
