Professionals & students find these reeds great

The free blowing nature of these reeds allows you to play the bassoon without putting extra obstacles in the way. The allows you to start notes super quietly and very loudly with no problem. All of the cane used to make these professional bassoon reeds is tested on colour, density & flexibility before being made into a reed. This means that these reeds are very consistent and are great to play on!

Medium strength, creating a warm sound

With approximately a 27mm blade length, a 29mm tube and a 16.5mm tip width, this professional bassoon reed has a medium strength, allowing users to hold a relaxed, open embouchure throughout their performance. This helps to create a warm 'Germanic' sound which will fill any venue!

Great reed

Very happy with this reed. I'm still breaking it in, but it was eminently usable straight out of the box. Good tone, responsive, clear and consistent across the range. Should be great, many thanks.
