Known for many years as the Rico Reserve the new branding and packaging from 2016 onwards reflects the D Addario company ownership (that has actually been in place since 2004) and the reeds are now referred to as Reserve, or D Addario Reserve.
The reeds are exactly the same, with the same geometry, manufacturing process, manufacturing location and indeed the same cane sourcing, it's only the packaging that has changed.
The reserve design offers a traditional blank clarinet reed that gives a focused sound, a shorter vamp for even response, rounded tip corners for tonal warmth, and a standard tip thickness for quick response.
Supplied in box of 10.
A traditional blank reed engineered for exceptional performance and consistency.
Produced in the USA from naturally grown cane.
Available in half strengths.
Offers a brighter more flexible and bright sound to the Reserve Classic.

Used these in the past - each pack has a good count of usable reeds

No reed is perfect but I find these more consistent than Vandoren.

I've been using the Rico Reserves for about 2 years now, and I've not had a problem yet. The reeds come in their separate little cases, and some boxes have Rico's Reed Revitaliser Pack, which I can't say makes much difference. Each reed lasts about 2 months, longer if you're swapping regularly.I'd recommend these reeds to any grade 5+ player.
