After playing my current Yanagisawa mouthpiece for 20 years, I finally took the risk of having Joe rework it. He balanced it, and it opened up in amazing ways. It’s much more responsive throughout the horn, yet the results are subtle and the upgrade presents no new problems. I’ve only played on it one day and suspect the change will continue to pay off. I’m sold on Joe’s work, and his friendly, helpful way of doing business. Affordable, responsive, expert advice and craftsmanship!
