    Re: Q for those who clip their reeds

    Yes, it is important to slightly thin the tip after clipping a hair's width off of the reed. You can do this with the ATG, as has been suggested, or very carefully with a very sharp reed knife. This...

    Re: Reed making machine

    I have the Uhl Technik machine and it is a very well made profiler which enables you to finish a reed from a blank in about 5 minutes. Using a commercial blank will enable you to do this. If you want...

    Re: Thomas Chapin setup

    When I first played with the Walter Thompson Orchestra back in the early 90s in NYC, I was subbing for Thomas Chapin. According to Walter, Thomas was playing on Bari synthetic reeds at the time,...

    Re: Klum Hollywood LTD

    I've been playing my LTD in a .108 tip for about 8 or 9 months now, including on a jazz trio gig in NYC tonight. This mouthpiece enables me to express my tenor sound beautifully, and the response is...

    Re: Soprano Planet Fabulous Work

    Joe recently did a marvelous job rebalancing my vintage Soloist, as well as making a 10-year-old S80 into a fine player. Excellent work.

    Re: Michael Brecker tone

    Any discussion of MBs equipment choices must include the fact that he suffered from a herniated larynx, and went to mouthpieces that enabled him to play without so much back pressure, higher-baffle...

    Re: James Spaulding's alto setup

    Great interview, thank you.

    Clearly, James Spaulding's sound resides in his own head and soul, but FWIW, a few years ago I was playing on a NY Meyer 9 (which I had obtained from Theo Wanne when he...

    Re: focustone - precision vs. handmade

    I can attest to the fact that Ted AND Sebastian do remarkable work. This is world-class craftsmanship, and I have greatly enjoyed the Klum pieces and the refacing they have done for me.

    Re: Sizing for Ted Klum Bari MPC

    The London model, which I own and use, is based on a lost wax casting of a vintage Berg mouthpiece, so I would think the sizing would be similar. That said, my London piece is .132, which is much...
  11. Re: Woodwind B5 STEEL EBONITE - your experience and tips?

    These can be excellent players. I have a WW Company Steel Ebonite tenor piece that Norbert Stachel refaced to a .108 which plays very well. Good quality rubber, and possible to open effectively in...

    Re: Ted Klum London Baritone Sax MPC

    I purchased the London TK bari mouthpiece a couple of days ago, and I concur, this is an amazing creation, absolutely the best I have played on the big horn. I was prepared to simply try it at Ted's...

    Re: ReedGeek - Any experience?

    I use different methods for balancing; the Ridenour ATG System is extremely effective in balancing and maximizing response. The most important factor in using the ATG is developing the sensitivity to...

    Re: Any alto players actually use 5's?

    Absolutely, Andy, reed/mouthpiece combo is everything. My vintage soprano Soloist that I picked up from Theo in his Philly shop maybe 10 years ago was quite close (marked a "c"), and, while the best...

    Re: ReedGeek - Any experience?

    I've been using the Reed Geek for close to a year, very effective, much easier to properly keep flat on the back of the reed than the knives I have, and it works especially well on dry reeds. After...
  17. Re: Which mpc & lig is Jackie McLean playing in this awesome video?

    I agree that the sharp pitch was part of JMs sound, abrasive, but cutting like a blowtorch.

    One of the most remarkable displays I have heard live was at Sonny Rollin's 65th Birthday concert in NYC...
  18. Re: Meyer Sop. and Woodwind Co. tenor ebonite mouthpieces on ebay

    The vintage WW Company piece I have been using on my MK VI tenor for the last few years was vastly improved by refacing and being opened. It went from a mediocre player to an excellent go to piece....
  19. Re: does the Rico Vitalizer pack make anyone else's reed really stuffy?

    In order for the Vitalizer to work properly, I would advise making sure the back of the reeds are flat, and that the reeds are properly balanced, before putting them into the bag.

    I find that...
