I’m on a quest to make the best mouthpieces ever made. My quest is to create mythical pieces. The one you can sell 4 times the price after I stop making them. Have I succeeded? I haven’t reached perfection yet, my mouthpieces are very, very close. Many of the best saxophonists in the world rely on my mouthpieces.

Do I have a secret ingredient? I have found a few – but the most important is that I don’t put a price tag on my time. No one else can afford to give mouthpieces the concentration and loving affection I do.

I think about mouthpieces from the moment I wake up until I go to bed at night. For me, making mouthpieces is not just another day in the office. I’m obsessed.  If my doctor tells me to take a break and go on vacation, my mind is on the mouthpieces.
