Eastman Esperto Tenor Sax Reed (Tenor Sax)
The cane is the reed and this is good cane. The Esperto vibrates more than the Venuto style of Eastman reed so I recommend the Esperto for Jazz and Commercial playing the the Venuto for classical playing. You might never have heard of this brand but it is worth trying. 5 reeds per box.

Eastman Venuto Clarinet Reed (Clarinet)
Good cane makes good reeds. The Venuto reed has great cane and is a thicker cut then the Esperto which is great for those clarinetists that are looking for more darkness and resistance. If you never have used this brand before you owe it to yourself to try them. The cut is a little different so you may need to use your reed adjustment system but this great cane gives you lots of reeds that work out of a box. 10 reeds per box.

MV Mouthpieces for Saxophone (Sax Mouthpieces)
I make MV Mouthpieces, also seen as MikeVaccaro Mouthpieces, and also known as M&M mouthpieces when I was working with my mentor Marc Yacoubian. I make mouthpieces from blanks (also called shells) of many different materials mostly hard rubber, Ebonite, or some plastics. These blanks are molded or made through a CNC process. When I get them they are not finished so I make them into a ready to play product. I also adjust, repair, and reface your current mouthpiece. I encourage you to not bring your best mouthpiece unless you have completely given up on what your mouthpiece brings to you. I make or repair Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Baritone Sax mouthpieces. Occasionally I will make Bass Sax or Sopranino mouthpiece. I do work on metal mouthpieces but prefer not to work on steel mouthpieces. If I accept a steel mouthpiece to work on my shop time price increases.

MV Alto Sax Mouthpiece (Alto Sax Mouthpiece)
I make, repair, and modify mouthpieces.

MV Mouthpieces are also known as MikeVaccaro Mouthpieces and also known as M&M mouthpieces when I partnered with my mentor Marc Yacoubian.

I start with blanks (or sometimes called shells) from various sources. These are mouthpieces that have been molded or made via CNC but are not finished. I take them from that state to the finished state of a ready to play mouthpiece.

I have some mouthpieces already made so you can come in and try them or buy them right off the cart. Others I wait until we can work together to find exactly what you are looking for.

Since literally every musician is looking for something a little different even though we could agree a certain mouthpiece plays well it may not be the one for you. That is why I am always hesitant to just send one in the mail. I will do that but please make sure and READ my return policy.

I make Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Baritone mouthpieces. You can always bring in or send me a mouthpiece you want worked on however unless you are dire straights and nothing is working please don't send your best mouthpiece as it will be different when I am done. Steel mouthpiece increase shop time as they are very slow to work on.

Who Plays It?

The prodigious Van Gogh is for the woodwind artist ready to experience a unique approach that facilitates freedom of expression, putting the player in control of the ultimate sound. Neutral in tone, the Van Gogh responds to simple adjustments that help the player paint exactly the musical picture he or she wishes to share with the audience.

Lively and strong for the colorful klezmer piece, passionate and dark for the most demanding orchestral piece, smooth and sweet for a jazzy love song, the Van Gogh is a masterpiece of a ligature that can do it all.
