The Classic Line and the Jazz Line are different in structure and shape so as to give distinct timber responses, suitable for performers who enjoy a variety of musical genres.
The Classic line is for classical musicians, but some prefer to use them for Jazz as well. The Jazz line is for musicians who prefer modern sounds and jazz.
EVO Reeds are an evolution of our previous Lupifaro Jazz reeds. We modified the cut in order to obtain even more vintage sounds and a feeling closer to old-school reeds.
To obtain this new cut the milling machines’ settings were pushed to their technical limits and some reeds may present an irregular cut on its back (more square rather than “U” shaped like classic unfiled cuts). This unusual aesthetic difference does not affect in any way the sound quality and shall not be considered a defect. The cane we used is a natural raw material and is never perfectly regular in shape.
Lupifaro EVO Reeds give an unparalleled steady and balanced response throughout the whole register, keeping the sound full and compact. These reeds are hand selected and the quality check is as strict as it has always been.
All Lupifaro reeds are designed by Luca Cardinali, who has developed a unique shape throughout the years, interpreting the feedback of countless musicians and personally adjusting each production to the smallest detail.
Lupifaro Reeds are produced using the best raw material on the market: a particular bamboo cane called Arundo Donax, farmed exclusively in Southern France. The peculiar micro-climate of this region, in fact, gives the plant uncommon flexibility and a unique timbre to the finished reed.
The result is an extremely reliable and responsive reed of unparalleled performance, featuring the lowest discard rate on the market.
