"I have been very pleased with the classical bassoon
and contra bassoon reeds that I have purchased from James Kopp over the
years. They are always well made and impeccably finished! In addition,
they require almost no additional adjustments. I am able to recommend
them enthusiastically and without reservations."

"During the several years I have known him, Jim Kopp has
developed his reeds for early bassoon with an infusion of ideas from me
and other professional players. Over time, he has refined his models to
reflect positive features of various styles."
"I have performed and recorded Vivaldi concerti with Jim's
reeds on baroque bassoon. And for my recent recording of the Mozart Bassoon
Concerto on classical bassoon, I also played one of his reeds."
