Used to like five years ago, but quit, I had a cheap Yamaha Tenor Sax

When I used to play I would use Vandoren or Rico. Vandorens are nicer but more expensive.

I don't play sax, but I'm gonna post a preemptive facepalm to any elitist rock guitarist who doesn't even know what jazz is that tries to dis the sax.

I love the sax, and always have tremendous respect for wind instrument players since I fail at them.

I play flute, too. It's a cool instrument IMO. Light, sounds good, in tune, and good range.

I play tenor. Depending on what I feel like spending when my reeds run low, I use either Rico Royals, Vandoren (blue box, traditionals I guess?), or Vandoren Javas (green box).

I play sax for school and ****ing hate it. I wanna learn jazz on it because it just doesn't fit in a symphonic setting.



Does your school have a jazz band?
Soon you will sit on the bench

You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

Weird question in a guitar forum, weirder for asking about that part of the sax, but ok. Honestly, I don't know what reeds I used. I just went down to the music store, asked for reeds, and got 'em. I was awesome at the sax, though.
I'm that dude with the fro.

Rico Royal's are quite good, never let me down...Rico's are cheaper but don't last quite as long. Vandoren's are very good quality if your willing to pay a bit extra. If you really want them to last look into some of the new carbon fibre reeds, very expensive but incredibly long lasting.

I learnt sax for about half a year through some school thing. It was actually mega fun, and saxes sound fantastic. I wish I could continue, but I'm not rich enough

i have a yanigasawa t 902 with a vandoren jumbo ebonite mouthpiece (size 5 tip opening). I'm going mouthpiece shopping in a few weeks which will be cool. I currently use vandoren javas but i'm going to pick up a box of rico jazz selects because they play really nicely.

i also have a 1978 MK VI soprano (one of the last ever made..) with a jody jazz ESP mouthpiece (size 6 tip opening). i love it.

i used vandoren size 4 ricos are not that good imo


I agree whole heartedly

Ricos are just... plain awful mostly.

I use Vandorens almost exclusively now having been converted.

I buy reeds from reeds-direct.com (it's like strings-direct.com only for reeds haha)

Terrible Rico 2 1/2s on a terrible student Selmer Alto Sax.

I've been meaning to get better reeds for some time, but I've never gotten around to it...
