Sebastian Knox is a Toronto-based woodwind mouthpiece craftsman who began his formal training in the fall of 2010 with industry legend, musician and master mouthpiece maker, Ted Klum.
Before his apprenticeship, Sebastian served many years in the Canadian Forces as a staff musician with formal musical training from the University of Manitoba and Humber College. It was during his time in college that Sebastian developed a comprehensive knowledge of vintage saxophones, mouthpieces and accessories. It was his deep love of the craftsmanship evident in these finely made mouthpieces that led him to leave Canada and move his life to New Jersey to apprentice with Ted Klum. Please check out the video below for more information into Sebastian’s history.
Since returning to Toronto, he has been working with local area musicians and artists around the world offering custom woodwind mouthpiece services from his studio located in downtown Toronto. This studio is an ideal environment to test mouthpieces, as well as a relaxed environment to work one on one.
