Makers of fine brass mouthpieces and accessories, Bob Reeves mouthpieces have been consistently rated as being easy to play and having a great sound by professional players. All of our mouthpieces, whether large or small, are balanced to maximize the colors, or overtones, in the sound. Bob Reeves holds an AA degree in Arts and Engineering from China Lake Naval Ordinance Test Station where he apprenticed for 6 years as an experimental machinist and toolmaker. He then went on to work for the Eldon Benge Company. He was originally hired as a bell maker and tool maker but soon ended up building every part of the trumpet as well as assembling trumpets when needed. He also worked with Carroll Purviance where he further honed his skill as a mouthpiece maker. It was at this time that he also studied the trumpet with John Clyman, (1st trumpet, 20th Century Fox studios, 25 years) while pursuing his AA degree in Arts and Music from Los Angeles City College.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
