From teaching woodwind methods to music ed majors to performing in the Columbus Broadway series, Rico has been there for me. As a woodwind doubler, I'm often preparing 4 - 7 different reed instruments for a performance. I've counted on Rico to be the 'go-to' reed for my many instruments. Now with the new Reserve and Reserve Classic, I've found a reed that has the tonal core for every style I'm playing.

A D'Addario Woodwinds player since 1970.
