 update on store-bot reeds

Hi Gang, it's been awhile since I posted!
I have been consulting for the Jones Reed people in Spokane. They have a new CEO, an engineer, who is working hard to profile their reeds better. They use M. Schuring's design as a model, Rigotti cane, and are open to advice from pro-oboists in Europe and USA. 15 people hand-work the reeds, from wrapping to making the seamless staples to gouging... everything is done on-site. MOSTLY by hand. All reeds are finished by actual players testing for response and pitch.
So if you've hated Jones reeds in the past, perhaps you'd be willing to try them again. With increased interest their prices will go down, so that more players who hate reed-making will have some hope.
I will also be offering reed-finishing workshops in Spokane for students who 'can't be bothered' with the whole process.
I am hopeful.
