Reeds Not selling Rico tenor reeds

I went to a shop in leeds to get some Rico tenor reeds and was told that they don't do it as they cost the same as other reeds (probably Rico royal).

They might cost the same but they sound very much different. I find that Rico and metal otto work quite well together, quite fat and punchy.

Seems very strange. The one reed you can almost guarantee to get in any music shop, even those full of guitars and drums and run by tatooed neanderthal heavy rock addicts, is a Rico.

So do people in the North still walk into shops to buy reeds - I thought everyone got them online at Reeds Direct or similar. ;}:w00t:

(I mentioned this to my grandad, and he smiled fondly into his mug of Ovaltine.........)

Luckily i bought 4 rico reeds from sheehans yesterday online. Only £1 or £1 something each. They only give discount on Rico tenor, not alto or clarinet. I think there is something happening to Rico tenor.
