The Evolution reed features more material in the heart for a pure, warm and transparent tone quality, stable and consistent from pianissimo to fortissimo, in all registers. The revolutionary cut provides unrivaled flexibility for precise articulation and interval changes. Grand Concert Select offers unparalleled reed-to-reed consistency with unprecedented longevity.


Am afraid that the quality of these reeds has gone down over the past few years, current box terrible - not the fault of Dawkes.

The supplier responded:Hi, thanks for your feedback. Sorry to hear you don't find these to be as reliable as they once were. We've passed this feedback onto D'Addario (who produce Rico) and hopefully they will take it on board. These have been around some time now but according to them there have been no changes in the production or supply of the reed cane. If you'd like to chat about some other alternatives one of our clarinet specialists would be happy to help and maybe find you something more suitable. Thanks again for using Dawkes Music.

Generally reliable and long-lasting reeds. I find they need minimal adjustment and I get very few in a box that won\'t work for me. I play mostly in concert band, and these reeds are flexible enough to produce different tone colours for different styles of music. Good projection when playing solo lines, and blend well when playing in section.
