Received my Axieme mp and immediately it was fantastic with the Marca Superieure reeds. Reading all the reviews i felt like it couldn’t be true. The reviews were like heaven. Now as I continue to play they are all true. Better intonation much, much better sound (even out of a bottom line soprano). Ease of playing is phenomenal. My wife absolutely loves the sound. The music minister at church could not understand what had happened. My thought is if you are reading these reviews they are real. Joe has a gift that no one has that I have found. We all hope he has an understudy or never passes. Thanks Joe you are very talented.
