CHRIS APPS
REEDMAKER
All Apps reeds are produced from start to finish by Chris Apps. From the selection of cane to the tuning of the final product Chris is the only person to ever touch the reeds. Although this means the process takes a bit longer than it would with an army of workers it ensures a superior quality reed. All questions and/or special requests can be discussed with Chris who will fashion a reed to fit the requirements. In our 21 year history very few reeds have been returned (nobody is perfect). Follow up questions are dealt with in a curtious manner. Chris likes his customers to be happy.
