Hi Bill,
Could you be more specific about the epuipment, methods or materials that
have improved recently to make reeds more playable? There has certainly
been no improvement in the quality of cane. What equipment or methods are
available to us which were not available to Mr. Gigliotti? The only
improvements I can think of has been in synthetics, not cane. I doubt if
Mr. Gigliotti today could find even 200 out of 1500.
