Intermediate Bassoon Reed
INTERMEDIATE MEDIUM HARD REEDS ARE ON BACKORDER UNTIL APRIL 1
The intermediate bassoon reed by a professional bassoonist. These reeds are slightly darker in tone than the basic reeds but are free blowing and responsive. These reeds are designed with advanced middle school students and high school students in mind.
Free blowing, easy to make a sound, clear and clean tone.
Darker tone, slightly more resistance.
FAQ: How do I decide which intermediate bassoon reed is best for me or my student?
A: It’s really a matter of personal preference. In our system “soft” and “hard” are not necessarily for a certain level of advanced status – it has mainly to do with the tone quality you like to use. If you’re not sure, you can try one of each, or try the medium soft, which is the most popular.
Professional Oboe Reed
This is a completely hand made oboe reed and crafted by a professional oboist. These reeds are made to play easily and in-tune in all octaves of the oboe. These reeds have a little more resistance and are designed for a player with a fully formed embouchure.
