As you are aware, I am very suspicious when it comes to making changes to my beloved Mark IV Selmer Tenor Saxophone.

Over the last year I have visited your shop on a regular basis and have been absolutely enthralled by your dedication and spirit for the saxophone. Your endeavours towards even greater craftsmanship have really paid off.

The last revision to your hand made saxophone pads and other techniques you have employed to improve the response and tone of my horn have  blown me away. Since leaving your shop dumbstruck last week, I have been playing to my hearts content.

I can’t thank you enough for the work you have done in getting me closer to my dream sound. You have inspired me to work harder and I only hope I can live up to the saxophone I now carry around with me.

Eternally grateful for your work and hope many more saxophone players get the chance to work with you.

Can’t wait to visit again and see what you’re up to next at the workbench
