Reserve Classic, Rico's most revolutionary cut, is filed and features a narrower blank taper and more gradual tip shape, offering the most precise articulation and flexibility. The Reserve Classic reed is suited for a wide range of symphonic and solo playing styles, and has a dark sound with a wide color palette. Reserve Classic reeds are made from thick blank, lower-internode cane; lower-internode cane comes from the first four tubes of the cane stalk, yielding greater consistency from reed to reed.
- Like the Reserve line, uses only the densest, lower-internode cane for longer durability and consistency
- Color video inspection sorts cane quality
- Offered in boxes of 5
- Available in half strengths, from 2.0 to 4.0, with special 3.0+ and 3.5+ strengths
