Known for many years as the Rico Select Jazz 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 Select Jazz, or D Addario Select Jazz.

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.

Select Jazz reeds feature the thickest spine and blank of D Addarios jazz reeds, with a traditional tip shape. The Select Jazz cut offers great projection, focus, and a vibrant sound. The unfiled reeds offered here have more cane left in the shoulders and offers a slightly more resistant and textured sound, less clinical than the filed option.

They are also generally more suited to mouthpieces with a gradual French style facing curve.

Offered in third strengths, rather than half strengths, so players can choose the most precise strength for their individual equipment. The Select Jazz are the choice of top Sax Professionals around the world.

  • Outstanding control and projection.
  • Produced from highest quality naturally produced cane.
  • Supplied in Box of 10 reeds.
  • Offered in third strengths for more accurate choice and supply in each box.
  • Suitable for all commercial, jazz, funk, pop, big band etc genres.
  • Filed reed for quick response and easier articulation.

Good quality, consistent reeds. Good tone throughout range and very responsive with Dukoff mouthpiece. Used for jazz but also teaching demonstration.

I use Rico Select Jazz 2S with a Vandoren V16 A6 mouthpiece to play Trad Jazz, swing and blues. It's an easy blow, so I can play for a long time.

They give much better sound than Rico reeds I'd been using.

Works for me

Excellent jazz reeds. Been using these for around 5 years now and they have been hugely successful for me. Create a great tone and help to project the sound!

I have been using strength 3S with my Dukoff X7 mouthpiece and all I can say is WOW. The reeds are responsive, easy to play and control! I find these reeds a little brighter and centered to give you that 'hit straight between the eyes' sound. I changed from using Vandoren Java a couple of years back because I found Java's to wear out quickly!
