Bob Mintzer (Top US Saxophonist):

'The Wood Stone reeds are incredibly consistent, vibrant and long lasting. The reeds have an even, dark tone that spans the full range of the instrument. I can't say enough about these reeds, they simply work great!'

Tom E Politzer (Sax Player, Tower of Power):

'Wood Stone reeds are simply the best Sax reeds I've ever used. Great cane and super consistent straight out of the box! I couldn't believe it when I first tried them, great reed after great reed, and that continues to be my experience. Also, they last longer than any reed I've ever played. Do yourself a favour and try them if you haven't yet.'

Ishimori Wood Stone Hand Selected Alto Saxophone Reeds - box of 5 : Boxes of 5 Reviews

Bob Mintzer got lucky (quote on consistency)! The first two reeds I tried were very different - the first was a full on 3 and the second was more like a 2.5. It remains to be seen which of the two is more representative. The reeds are quite like Superial DC and I like them a lot, but I don't know that they are worth the price premium. Like the Superial they come stuck to a piece of card, which I think is more than a bit cheap for a premium priced product. Every Rico and Vandoren reed comes in a decent plastic reed holder, so why can't these guys do it?

These are excellent reeds and I would recommend them to anyone. Reason not 5 stars is you have to take a bit of a gamble on strength. I was using Vandoren 2.5 and knew Wood Stone are softer, so opted for a 3 but still a bit too soft. However one of the box was slightly harder so I am using this, with great results. I shall invest in a reed cutter perhaps! But will go for 3.5 next time

Very good reeds, although a bit expensive.

Very soft. Half strength softer than most other makes.

Been informed by Dawkes Music news updates, thought might just have a try with this new reeds, Ishimori Wood Stone Hand Selected Alto Sax Reeds. Surprisingly, this is the better one compared with the other top-named one I used for years. Thanks for the information and good services from Dawkes.
