Bob Reeves Brass 50th Anniversary Celebration

2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of Bob Reeves Brass Mouthpieces. After working for Carroll Purviance in his custom mouthpiece shop, Bob Reeves officially opened for business on April 1st, 1968 in Hollywood, California. Learn more about Bob’s history in his episode of The Other Side of the Bell.

Get a mouthpiece personally made by Bob Reeves

Each week, for 50 weeks, we will randomly choose a mouthpiece from our orders to have Bob Reeves personally make. The mouthpiece will be chosen from our customer orders as well as our dealer orders. The mouthpiece will be hand stamped with a serial number and include a signed certificate of authenticity. We will also have photos  and video of Bob personally making each mouthpiece.

Week #1 – 42/S 69 for Henry C., Texas, US
Week #2 – 3C/S 69 for Markus P., Germany

Other Cool Events

We will celebrate this milestone in many other ways throughout the year. Trips to Japan and Australia kicked off our World Tour that will continue throughout 2018. We will be offering specials and 50th Anniversary merchandise as well.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date so you don’t miss out on any events or specials.
