 STAFF REVIEW

"The Rico Jazz Select has become one of the Worlds most popular reeds used by many of today's top Jazz musicians, so naturally when D'Addario announced the arrival of a new Jazz Select mouthpiece my interest was peaked. Excited to get my hands on one, my first impressions were that this seemed a tidily made mouthpiece. This isn't an expensive piece of kit, in at a very competitive price, but the table, window, and rails are very neatly done despite the lack of any hand finishing. As for how the piece would play and sound I was very much expecting another run-of-the-mill Meyer copy that was the ultimate balance of free-blowing meets brightness, but I was wrong. What hit me first was that this mouthpiece has a big sound, and I mean BIG. The sound colour was also not what I expected, a deep richness that leant more towards the dark 'link style' sound but still with the liveliness of a modern Meyer. Now I'm not the world's best alto player but even I was producing a full sound across the whole range of the horn with relative ease, even the low Bb was coming out at low volumes. I would highly recommend this mouthpiece to those looking for a meaty bop-style sound reminiscent of the likes of Parker and Cannonball and definitely the first stop for any budding jazz student." - Matthew - Sax.co.uk
