There are a lot of good reviews about reeds and Rico reeds specifically. Instead of just telling you how good the Rico #2 reed is I will give a review and address questions about reeds in general. First is what reed do you use first? If you are already playing then you probably already know that answer. If you are a professional then you have that answer too. If you are just beginning then this will help you. I went to Rico themselves and spoke with an expert so I could give you the information you needed. Personally, the Rico #1 1/2 is a great place to start as one reviewer has already mentioned. If you played before, put your clarinet away and are starting back as I am. I used to use a 3 1/2 Mitchell Lurie which is made by Rico as the expert told me. Then there is the new Plasticover reeds which are made with both cane and plastic and they taste terrible...YUCK!...lol. The plastic reeds are great for the outside such as marching band. I wish I had them when I was in the marching band 30 years ago. So what do you do when there are so many types out there. One reviewer mentioned the Rico 2 is a good place to start and I would agree, but if you are beginning start with a 1 1/2 it will be easier to blow air through and one other thought I bet you didn't know was that Benny Goodman, very famous playing the clarinet used a 1 1/2. I would also tell you not to buy too many and remember because you may not be able to send them back for hygiene purposes. In the Rico family they start with the regular Rico, then Royal, Reserve, Select Jazz, Grand Concert, for outside the Plasticover. Remember all of those words had Rico in front of them. They also go up in cost the better the reed is. That brings me to my next thought. Reeds are very personal.Read more ›

I play clarinet, and highly recomend Rico reeds because they don't crack or snap easily. If you are a beginner at Clarinet, buy the 2 size 10 pack of reeds. Most people can use that size. Very good, after a year I still have some reeds left. I highly recomend these.

I have always found Ricos to be acceptable beginner reeds for students in their first year or two playing. The reeds are fairly consistent, and the lower price means that breaking a reed is not too much of an expense for whomever is footing the bill for reeds (teacher, student, school, parent...). The provided plastic cases do a good job protecting the reed, as long as they are not pushed in too far. I usually move students to Rico Royal or Vandoran after their first full year or two. Amazon does have excellent prices on reeds - definitely recommend buying here!

That's just it--these are great to begin learning with. They don't last long, though, and young children should be taught right away how to be careful with them (to avoid cracking, splitting).

These are really good quality reeds for the clarinet. We've found it's better to order them in a larger quantity (as found in this box) because you get a much better price that way. Also, it's nice to not have to pick them up so often when you can buy more at a time. This is a great deal for reeds because a lot of music stores charge $2.75, at least, per piece. Many stores, may even charge much more than this. Buying reeds this way allows us to get more for our money and keep the same quality we're used to having. Another benefit is the subscription program. If you have them sent to you automatically every 4 months, you get an even bigger discount that's helpful. Our son uses these for his clarinet and we need to replace them pretty often. This works great for us!
