Even though regular Olivieri alto reeds are discontinued, I recently bought a stash of Olivieri alto reeds. My teacher back in the early 80's swore by these reeds and a saxophonist I really respect, Bob Black from chicago, also recorded on these reeds...here's my question...

What does "tempered for peak performance" mean? It reads that these were made in Spain but where is the cane from? What is the story on these reeds? the Cut is like an american--french cut...it's half and half...

Any input is welcome on these...
