Here's what clients are saying.........
"John has worked on multiple mouthpieces for me, including several for Alto
Sax, Tenor Sax, Soprano Sax, and Clarinet. His work on my different pieces has varied from minor resurfacing to putting in
crazy large baffles. John works quickly, but never rushes a job. He always strives to make the piece better for the player,
and doesn't just put some standard technique on every mouthpiece. John always listens to what I'm saying about how a piece
is playing, and works to get it just right. Because of John's work, my altissimo sings without being shrill, and there is
more depth to my tone. For anyone who knows exactly what they want, or for anyone who is looking for a great set of ears to
bounce mouthpiece ideas off of, I can't recommend John highly enough".
Shelby, Los Angeles
work is impeccable and as a general mouthpiece resource, there is no equal that I know of".
.....Glenn Medd, British Columbia
"I would love
to say that you are the best mouthpiece doctor in the world. You fixed my old 30 year old Wurlitzer mouthpiece and brought
it back to life. You are the man! I don't have to go back to Germany anymore!"
Zukovsky, LA Philharmonic
"John is the only mouthpiece
technician I would trust with my rare Contrabass sax mouthpiece"
Side Street Strutters, LA Freelancer
"I am so
pleased that I had John work on some of my links. They all came back playing much better, and I have been using one exclusively
for the last year. It has a big full-spectrum sound and the intonation is spot-on. I have recommended his work to everyone
and I am planning to continue working with him in the future."
.....Eric Alexander, world renown artist
is equally proficient on saxophones/woodwinds as he is a mouthpiece craftsman. This combination of experience makes him a
"go-to" guy amongst the finest woodwind players across the globe. John has personally worked on many of my mouthpieces
covering a wide scope of concepts. He will take care of your every need however slight or elaborate. In my opinion there is
no such thing as a "minor" adjustment to a players personal mouthpiece. Based on my experience, I would trust John
with any and all of my mouthpiece equipment".
foremost LA Studio player
"John Reilly is truly an artist when it comes to working on mouthpieces.
He is great to work with and gets the best out of the mouthpiece. I highly recommend his work."
Dahlke, Assoc.Prof.of Saxophone, Univ.of N.Colorado
is a person of integrity, knowledge and skill. I have the ultimate respect for his refacing work. He is clean, accurate and
gets results. John is an asset to all he does and a great friend as well. One of the real mouthpiece refacers in this world."
