 Re: LaVoz Reeds

Mitchell Lurie reeds were always made by Rico. I made them for 15 years. From the early 1980's until the late 1990's. I was the designer of the Grand Concert line of reeds in the early to mid 1990's and also in charge of the La Voz reeds.

The ONLY difference between a Rico Royal and the La Voz reeds are the file marks at the bark; also referred to as the Vamp. Sandpaper is used to cut this. They come from the same machines and the same cane is used.

I left Rico because they stopped washing the cane and used PESTICIDES now on EVERY reed you put in your mouth. Think about this. I got pretty sick as they didn't tell me. I have a major lawsuit against them.

Hope this helps...
