When The Art of Better Reeds Meet The Artist:

  • David Sanborn
    "It's the only reed tool that's ever worked for me."David Sanborn
  • Adam Niewood
    "This is not just a product, it is a system, one that really works. The philosophy is quite simple: The sound begins at the Reed. These tools along with a working knowledge of how to use them, quickly allow me to make each and every Reed in a box, play great! Even old reeds can be reworked, and made useable again. With the average Box of Reeds costing $35-$40, not using every one in the box, is fiscally irresponsible. From an economic standpoint? These tools are invaluable!"Adam Niewood

    "The Universal ReedGeek recently saved a performance out west. Miami is humid and some parts of the west are brutally dry. As a result, the Universal saved the day and allowed me to make music regardless of the environment. I love the Klangbogen and its immediate improvement of the overall sound. Thank you ReedGeek!"Dr. Ed Calle
  • Eddie Daniels

    "The Reed Geek does everything a reed knife does and much more; a must have product for any student or professional reed player."Gunnar Mossblad
  • Ian Hendrickson-Smith
    "The Klangbogen does so many great things for my horn. The middle register pops more, the entire horn plays more evenly, my low and and high notes are fatter, the altissimo is more settled and there's a certain "vibe" it imparts that I just have to have from here on out. I also find it's easier to play time--the notes seem to sit in their slots easier making me free to play on my own terms. The various finishes all have their own thing so it's a great tool to really dial in your individual sound. I highly recommend these amazing devices to any serious saxophone player."Ian Hendrickson-Smith
  • Jeff Kashiwa
    "The ReedGeek has made every reed playable! It has quickly become the most valuable tool I use."Jeff Kashiwa
  • Jeff Rupert
    "Mauro Di Gioia's Reed Geek is a game changer. I'm able to get superb response and sensitivity in tone out of all of my reeds. For years I had been thinking that the mouthpiece is more of a variable than perhaps it really is... being able to effectively adjust reeds has been eye opening for me. Thanks so much Mauro!"Jeff Rupert
  • Julius Tolentino
    "Creating a beautiful sound every time you pick up your instrument comes first and foremost. Both the ReedGeek and the Klangbogen allow me to get to that space no matter the acoustics of the room or how my reed is dealing with the climate. First they give me more consistency with my reeds and my horn, and second it allows me to make tiny adjustments that help me focus my sound no matter the situation."Julius Tolentino

  • Martin Kuuskmann(Photo: Karl J Kaul)
    "ReedGeek tools have been a steady companion on my global travels for the past 6 years. I never remove them from my case nor do I need to use anything else to scrape both by cane and Legere reeds with. I sincerely believe every reed player should at least own one — they will benefit hugely by having a ReedGeek tool as part of their 'tool artillery'."Martin Kuuskmann
  • Mike Smith
    "What an amazing tool. No reed player should be without it. Wish I had this thirty years ago. Would have saved a lot of reeds and years of aggravation."Mike Smith

    "I'm happy to endorse the Reed Geek. It's been a game-changer in terms of getting the majority of my reeds to play well. I find it much easier to use than a reed knife, and it's more portable so it fits easily inside my instrument case. I've had several of my students purchase the Reed Geek, and I strongly recommend it for any serious student or professional."Nick Biello
  • Omri Abramov
    "It's unbelievable what the ReedGeek can do to your reed! Mauro took a reed that was barely playable for me and transformed it to one of my best reeds ever in just seconds! Apart from making it super stable AND responsive across the whole range, it was really easy to play and most amazingly — it lasted for longer time than my usual reed. The Klangbogen is truly something you have to see in order to believe it. I was a bit sceptic before trying it, and boy was I wrong. This is a mindblower! It feels like I have a boost added to my horn, making it feel like 'riding' effortlessly and fluently across the whole range with tons of presence. It also stabilised more my control over the altissimo range and added powerful sub-tones to my lower end. The buzz it's creating is enriching the overtones and the whole horn just feels so powerful, yet flexible! It's like having an acoustic pre-amp to your horn."Omri Abramov
  • Rick Keller
    "The ReedGeek tool is a vital accessory for every woodwind player. The potential to optimize and increase the longevity of your reeds can be achieved with the knowledge of a few basic premises about working with cane."Rick Keller
