Reviewer: Bob Brooks
I ordered this book and read every page. The descriptions of saxophone reed selection, modification and maintenance was as complete a database as I believe could be assembled. The personal notes and historical photos is an entertaining addition. The book is recommended to all reed players, teachers and purveyors as a must have reference.
