Professional Bassoon Reed Blanks
There are many makers of bassoon reed blanks and like many I began playing the bassoon using the German reeds of Urbach, Windler and Widmann. But I had a reed epiphany while I was in the Hong Kong Philharmonic (1996-1999). The San Francisco Symphony was visiting and their principal bassoon gave a talk on reed making. I'm fairly sure that the talk went over the heads of the students but I was enthralled, at last I'd found a way to make reeds that promised a new more consistent approach and threw out the old compromises. At this point I should say that what I learned that day was not a new concept and the basis of this unique approach to reed making came from the great
The result is a reed that is extremely flexible and not at all woolly in sound. Also because the cane is of good quality and quite hard the reeds seem to last longer than usual.
I don't bind my reeds anymore, preferring to dip the bassoon reed blank in cellulose dope instead. This saves time and also creates a very good seal.
So if you are fed up with your usual poor bassoon reeds that sound woolly and lack focus you need my professional bassoon reeds.
The Professional Bassoon reeds cost £14.99 each
