Nah, I love a quick whiz with a dutch reed. I normally suck em, play em and then after a while tweek em a bit if the need balancing or if they play a bit hard.Yup- same here, stick 'em in a glass of water for five minutes at most. life's too short to sweat over delinquent sax reeeds
Hi Pete,I've just started playing cane reeds again, since finding Lupifaro. I got some samples from Namm and gave a couple to Bobby Wellins who is completely sold on them -and may become an endorser.
Thing I find is that they all play Ok out of the box so as much as I want to have a go on the Reedgeek, there us very little to do.
I got some samples from Namm, and am in touch with them to do a discount for Cafe members.Hi Pete,
What is your source for the Lupifaro reeds ? Buying them direct costs a large amount, so I would like to find a UK supplier and compare them with the Rigotti Golds I really like.
Maybe you could do a Café Saxophone group order every 3 or 4 months, with the charity getting a percentage and Lupifaro offering a bulk discount but providing whatever strengths and sizes people want.I got some samples from Namm, and am in touch with them to do a discount for Cafe members.
It is vaguely possible I could stock some on TamingTheSaxophone, but I would only be able to have some very limited variations as I wouldn't have time to become a "proper shop"
(I may possibly become an endorser)
