D’Addario Reserve Reeds – Alto

$28.99

 

Reserve reeds are crafted using naturally-grown cane from D’Addario’s own foreign fields.  D’Addario has pioneered the first practical and precise system to digitally measure and cut the incredibly complex geometrical patterns necessary to re-invent single reeds. Reserve reeds are cut to the tightest tolerances, offering the most consistent performance.
