Terms & Conditions
Johannesgerber.com is the trading name of SA Woodwinds (Pty) Ltd. based in Uitenhage, South Africa. We specialize in the manufacture of saxophone mouthpieces, modification/restoration of saxophone mouthpieces, and servicing/sales of saxophones and clarinets.
Our Company registered address is 30A Lavender Crescent, Fairbridge Heights, Uitenhage 6229, South Africa, but this is our accountant's address so do not expect to find any saxophones there!
