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. The softness or hardness of a reed mainly affects the tone quality of an instrument. If you’re not sure which you prefer, you can try one of each. The medium soft, which is one of our most popular reeds, is an excellent starting point.
All of our bassoon reeds have been play-tested by a professional bassoonist.
