The D'Addario Reserve reeds for clarinet and saxophone are marvelously crafted and consistent while possessing great warmth and depth of sound, exceptionally balanced, and superbly responsive in all registers. As a performing artist and music educator, I appreciate that D’Addario Artist Relations and Product Design Team listens carefully and collaborates with their endorsing artists. They use our input and ideas along with the latest technological processes to create, refine, and present innovative products that meet and exceed the demands of modern classical and jazz musicians.

A D'Addario Woodwinds player since 1992.

London-Silas Shavers is Professor of Fine Arts at Northwest Mississippi Community College and an Endorsing Artist/Clinician for Backun Musical Services, Ltd., P. Mauriat Saxophones, and D’Addario Woodwinds Products. In addition to his teaching, festival adjudication, and ensemble conducting throughout the Greater Memphis area, Shavers performs throughout the United States and abroad as a soloist and chamber musician, and is an active clarinet and saxophone clinician, recitalist, and composer. Shavers has been the featured soloist with the Valparaiso University Chamber Concert Band, Western Michigan University Symphony Orchestra, Dyersburg State College Symphony Orchestra, University of Memphis Symphonic Band, Rhodes College Orchestra, Northwest Mississippi Community College Symphonic Winds, and various youth symphonies and elite high school orchestral and wind ensemble festival programs across the country.

As an ardent proponent of music by living composers, Shavers has participated in multiple consortiums to commission new works and has also premiered works by North American composers David Maslanka, Bill Douglas, and Gary Schocker. Shavers holds degrees from Valparaiso University (B.M.Ed), Western Michigan University, (M.Mus), and has completed additional graduate studies at the University of Memphis. His principal clarinet teachers include Karen Woodworth, Denise Chigas-Kirkland, Bradley Wong, and James Gholson.

Shavers performs exclusively on custom clarinets, bells, and barrels made by master designer Morrie Backun, P. Mauriat Model 86 Soprano and Alto Saxophones, the London Silas Shavers Artist clarinet mouthpiece, and D’Addario Reserve Classic Clarinet reeds and Reserve Saxophone reeds.
