OUR CUSTOMERS SPEAK

"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."

  James R. McKay
Professor of Bassoon, University of Western Ontario
Author, The Bassoon Reed Manual (IndianaUniversity Press, 2000)

"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."

  Dennis Godburn has performed with the Handel & Haydn Society, Philharmonia Baroque, Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, Orchestra of St. Luke's and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.
