I love D'Addario reeds for their flexibility, versatility, and consistency. The reeds are perfect for any task, whether it's a live performance, teaching in my private studio, or overdubbing tracks in one of the many recording studios here in Nashville. As a teacher, I also support D'Addario in their focus on education.

A D'Addario Woodwinds player since 2003.
