The Future of IVRY Reeds: An Important Update

Posted by Aaron Mason at  | 0 comments Tags: announcement, IVRY reeds

After devoting nearly a year to product research and the development of manufacturing technologies, Claude Lakey is announcing that we are suspending the launch of IVRY Reeds, the world’s first harmonically resonant synthetic reed.

Will I ever be able to buy these reeds?

Yes! This exciting project is still moving forward, and if you stay tuned to Claude Lakey by following us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, we will let you know where to find them when they are made available.

Why did this happen?

Bringing such a revolutionary product to market is a massive undertaking - even the manufacturing process had to be redesigned from the ground up. While Claude Lakey products are available in more than 30 countries around the world, we are a small, family-owned business with finite resources. We were unwilling to sacrifice the quality you’ve come to expect from a name trusted for over 50 years.

What does this mean for pre-order customers?

Anyone who pre-ordered IVRY Reeds has already been given a 100% refund. If you believe you haven't received a refund due to you, email


Thank you for your continued support, and for making Claude Lakey mouthpieces a part of your unique sound.

The Claude Lakey Team
