  1. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    I play a Woodstone 8 tenor piece (with an Ishimori ligature and Robertos 2.5 hard reeds) and love it. I'd love something similar, dark and fairly free blowing, on soprano. I desperately need to upgrade my setup. Wondering if anyone can speak to their experience with either the Klum or the...
  2. What to Buy & Why: Reeds and Misc.
    Hi, I´ve bought a box of 5 Wood Stone reeds nr. 3 for tenor sax. I was blown away! I thought: "OMG these are the best reeds by far! These are MY reeds now" I loved them at the first note. The problem came when I bought the second box of reeds. They are way harder than the first. Both are number...
  3. Ligatures
    I got an Ishimori Woodstone Solid Silver ligature Bb clarinet French because I hoped it would fit on my Guardala tenor mouthpiece and my Meyer HR NY alto mouthpiece. I had read that Ishimori clarinet ligatures might fit on alto mouthpiece. So I would like to share my experience: It's definitely...
  4. Evaluations/Member Transactions/ United States
    I had a day off in the city and had been wanting to try the Ishimori Woodstone tenor mouthpiece, so I went to Roberto's on a lark. I was a little skeptical as the prices in their Mark VI room are the stuff of legend. I walked in and was greeted by a very friendly young man who set me up in a...
  5. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Is there anybody here who has compared ligature sizes for Ted Klum Focustone mouthpieces with other makers? I see that Ishimore Woodstone are offering a ligature for Guardala tenor pieces. When I asked them they answered they have no experience with Focustones. I guess Focustone mpcs might be...
  6. Tenor mpc
    Hi, I am interested in trying a big chamber mouthpiece. Currently I am using a Jody Jazz HR 6*. I am satisfied with it, but I want to experience with different types of mouthpieces. The obvious choice would be an Otto Link ebonite, but regarding the Link quality issues (myth or not), I have...
  7. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Now that Sax-ccessories is no longer in existence (RIP Brian) does anyone know where to buy Ishimori Wood-Stone Mouthpieces in the states? I know places like Roberto's carries their ligatures, but I've had no luck finding the mouthpieces. Any help would be great! Thanks!
  8. Alto mpc
    I have been looking for a good mouthpiece for a while now but, in my area, I can't find a whole lot of places I can try pieces. Does anyone know anywhere I can try one of these (the Ishimori)? I live in Charlotte NC and I am looking to try all sorts of mouthpieces otherwise. I am willing to...
  9. Ligatures
