I have heard that also Sabine Meyer plays these reeds. Perhaps they are
good, aren't they?!
Best regard Michele from Venice
p.s. I continue to play Vandoren ones. I am devoted to them. You know how
it is...

ones. I used them in college back in the ' 60 's.

Marvelous cane!!!! and now 36 years old. As I understand it, at that time
Gebhard Steuer was handmaking reeds in Lindau Bodensee. They are all hand
finished and very smooth, individually packaged. Really a classy reed
company back then. I haven't seen any of the modern ones---will have to try
them.

> I used the German clarinet ones in college, and alto sax ones when I was
playing on Gospel tv in the early '70's.

Steve Berlin with Los Lobos used them on tenor sax.

that Karl Leister was one of his customers????
