BOB'S NEWS UPDATE

We've changed our 'look and feel' to something more easy on the eyes. We hope that you like it!

NEW CONCERT VIDEOS!

We just posted some brand-new video from a concert earlier this year. Hear Bob wail on the Video Page

MOUTHPIECE NEWS

The great line of mouthpieces by Ted Klum: Accoustimer II TS, Tonamax TS, Accoustimax AS,†Versitone AS are all available through me.† They are great! To hear me playing the Tonamax, just go to the videos of Randy Jonesís custom TS below.

I personally am also working hard at promoting "Interplay", my new 3 disk classical CD that features all my compositional efforts to date since my Albany release in the early 2000ís. I am aiming at a European tour this year possibly including Russia. The new project is on MSR. Coming next year is another 3 disk project of jazz compositions.

NEW VIDEOS!

Be sure to check out the videos†of the TenorMadness Custom TS assembled in the USA by Randy Jones†of Waterloo, Iowa.† It proves to me that the guy at the end of the assembly line is the most important person as far as a quality product is concerned.† Randy is one of the most advanced craftsman-artists in the saxophone world.† He turns the mechanism into something on a par with a hand-made flute.† Each horn is made with his special attention.† He also can tailor the spring tensions, key heights, and any other personal details you†may desire. † He also knows about the geometry necessary to make a good neck with the right taper and sizing.† I have†both his 500SL and† Big Bore necks.† The 500SL loves the great Tone Edges of the 60ís and Ted Klum's Accoustimer II. The Big Bore plays great with the Selmer Soloist or the Meyer NYUSA Medium Chamber.† He can make a neck any way you want it.†††††† † Please check out my videos and give†them a listen.† You'll hear what I mean. The Custom TS is featured on Recado Bossa Nova, LTD's Ballad Take 1, LTD's Ballad Take 2, and Beatrice. Also new on the clarinet is Clarinet Funk, and on the flute, Swingin' Shepherd Blues. † Bob Ackerman
