Katisse Buckingham

"The Select Jazz Filed reeds I play on alto saxophone are absolutely fantastic. So consistently easy to play and easy to control. I can play from the lowest Bb all the way into the upper range of the altissimo with the same embouchure. I can play at a whisper with great clarity, to loud and brassy.

As a busy studio player, and one who does NOT like to change set ups for different applications, I can get any color I need with one set up. Very thankful for these reeds!"
