"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"
............George Shelby, Los Angeles
"John's 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".
...........Michele Zukovsky, LA Philharmonic
"John is the only mouthpiece technician I would trust with my rare Contrabass sax mouthpiece".
..........Rob Verdi, 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 am planning on working with him in the future".
...............Eric Alexander, world renown artist
"John is equally proficient on saxophone/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 every need however slight or elaborate. In my opinion there is no such thing as a minor adjustment to a player's personal mouthpiece. Based on my experience, I would trust John with any and all of my mouthpiece equipment".
..............Dan Higgins, 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".
...............Dr. Andrew Dahlke, Associate Prof. of Saxophone, University of Northern Colorado.
" John Reilly 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 greatest mouthpiece refacers in the world".
