Larry Guy's "Selection, Adjustment, and Care of Single Reeds" Rivernote
Press, 36 Hudson Avenue, Stony Point, NY 10980. $15 including shipping.
Thorough and lucid.

If you make reeds, Ronald Vazquez's "Clarinet Reedmaker's Book" (I think
this is right - my copy is on loan). This you can get from Muncy (and all
the other usual suspects, I'm sure)


David Niethamer
Principal Clarinet, Richmond Symphony
