"Krassimir Ivanov is a skilled craftsman who makes very high quality
reeds, and I believe that he is one of the best professional reed
makers in the market today."
The Philadelphia Orchestra
"Over the years I have tried reeds from multiple makers, but none have suited me better than the reeds from the master reed-maker Krassimir Ivanov. They are beautifully made and Krassimir uses cane that has this velvety sound, and lasts for a really long time. The consistency from one reed to the next is remarkable."
