Reed store

My latest project is an online store to sell my reeds.
The first two years I played professionally I made about 700 reeds a year. Then as my system improved it dropped off. I was on track to make fewer than 200 reeds this year – that’s enough that I always have something to play on but I’m not going to make more progress that way. I could put that time back in, make 700 reeds, sell 400 of them and still have enough to play on myself.

I am also selling English horn reeds, tied blanks, and shaped cane.
