Admittedly a bit pricey, yet worth every penny!
His system makes complete sense, and I obtained good results in short order. I figure that I have about 2 decade's worth of mediocre reeds that I can now convert to good or great players with his system. I use Fibracell reeds, and his method works quite well on them.
His method is so simple and yet so smart - "Now, why didn't I think of that?"
Practicing is more enjoyable and far more productive with reeds that play really well. I don't need to muscle the reed to get what I want.
The most difficult thing to get the hang of is his method of testing the side-to-side balance of the reed (which, by the way, is described at his website, but seeing him do it on the DVD is very helpful.) He demonstrates this method for clarinet only, with no tips for we saxophonists. However I've found that the method is quite adaptable to sax. Over time, one becomes better at this testing method - which it seems to me will lead to even better results adjusting the reed.
I have used Tom Ridenour?s ATG System for Adjusting Reeds for about 6 months. I can tell you that I have eliminated my reed problems. Do not expect this system to be like the traditional reed rush/knife method taught by most educators. On the contrary, his method of adjusting with an easy test to tell where and how much material to effect, is much simpler and accurate. After reading the material and watching the included DVD (about 30 minutes), my very first reed was better than all I played the past year. Now, it is possible for me to use cane from different areas of the world (manufacturers) to acquire a tone quality (voicing) compatible with the ensemble in which I am playing. It is my understanding that the ATG System is based on his life?s work with the acoustics of the clarinet. I have worked with Ridenour, and in my 40 years of playing clarinet, I have never met a person who retains even half the knowledgeable he has about the instrument. The ATG System is not suggested but, in my opinion, is a requirement for all persons playing single reed instruments.
It was so easy to use from the very beginning. My students are saving so much money now that I've trained them to use the ATG reed system. They sound so much better in their lessons now that they can adjust their own reeds. I know of no other product on the market that allows one to adjust clarinet and saxophone reeds with such ease and accuracy. Every single reed player should own this system.
Watched the video last night then adjusted all the bad reeds in my case tonight. Some were nearly unplayable. Every reed was improved to be responsive and consistent, so I'm very impressed. With practice, I'm confident I could make each reed perform as well as the best reed in my case.
I watched the ATG Video. I adjusted a terrible reed in about 30 seconds. Then I laughed for about 5 minutes. It was so easy. This product changed my total view of reed adjustment after a 40 year professional career of fussing with reeds.
