Indeed, I bought a few boxes from him in November as well, to compare with the Evo's - Luca told me his unfiled reeds are exactly the same cut as the old Lupifaro Jazz reeds, in case anybody is missing them! (I certainly prefer them to the Evo's, there's a bit more core to the Cardinali's IMO).Luca always did have his own company Cardinali Saxophone shop - before, during and after. His own line might not be too dissimilar except that it looks like he's making his products with a very small team or solo. He's evidently a good tech and used to work at Borgani. He even has his own brand of reeds. Like Lupifaro, Robertos etc they are made at Rigotti.
