Are you interested in high quality bassoon reeds and their production? The main material used to make a bassoon reed comes from a reed plant common in the Mediterranean known as the giant cane (Arundo Dorax). Every single reed plant has its own individual structure and growth pattern. Using a special density test, all of the cane which is too hard or too soft is identified and discarded. Every carefully chose piece of cane has its own individual and unique resonance characteristics. My philosophy is to uncover the unique resonance capabilities of each piece of chosen material through a careful, hand crafted process made up of many small steps in order to achieve the best quality possible.
