Forestone, a young and dynamic company which wants to connect musicians worldwide becoming the open minded borderless future of woodwind in a still too conservative surrounding. Founded in late 2007 with a group of people anxious to develop a better reed and release players from all known problems with cane and bad sound plastic reeds.
Forestone discovered a new material formula - half bamboo and half PP which was the perfect combination of wooden sound while being perfectly consistent when manufactured by injection molding. In 2010 all preparations for Forestone Reeds were done and company founder Lars Heuseler started to be set up in most countries around the world taking over a leading position among synthetic and cane reed brands with a line-up for all single reed instruments from Clarinet to Saxophone for classic players and jazz players.
In 2012 Forestone joined hands with Japanese instrument builders who mentioned to be looking for new challenges. Their decades of experience enabled them to create a Saxophone using Japanese technology, like Cryogenic process never used before in saxophone industry, combined with the experience of repairing almost every saxophone brand ever being produced.
As a result, Forestone is building today the finest Japanese saxophones and taking responsibility for every single horn. World demanded saxophone players fall in love with Forestone: Nacho Gascón, Xose Miguelez, Pepe Burgos, Diogo Pinheiro or Anja Nedremo just to name a few!
