Just got back from visit at Babbitt in Elkhart…
*They have a great team of people working on their mouthpieces…
*The factory is beautiful and clean.
*The owner Steve is very nice and working on improving the mouthpieces and bring back many of the original mouthpieces they own…
*They have Chris French and he has many years of experience in product development and design. (and more knowledge about woodwind than anyone I have ever met)
*Mike Smith of course has many years in product development and is great saxophone and clarinet player…. I have known Mike since he was child at North Texas some 45+ years….
*The factory employees re devoted to their jobs…. All seem to be very happy… hard to say in most workplaces today…..
*I was very impressed with the direction the company is taking in making the best mouthpieces possible….
* Believe you can purchase any of their mouthpieces with confidence they are great….
