The Reserve Classic Alto Saxophone reeds are made from lower-internode cane which produces the most consistent tone of any reed currently on the market. The new Reserve Classic reeds feature a thicker blank that allows for more resonation as well as a profile that provides more flexibility than standard alto saxophone reeds. Reserve Classic Alto Saxophone reeds are available in strengths of 2.0 to 4.5. The Reserve Classic line also offers 3.0+ strength, making Reserve Classic the first line of reeds to offer this strength option for the alto saxophone.
