For customers who have developed a fondness, we continue to offer three popular models:
The hand-thinned gouge of the short-scrape baroque reed (left) leaves denser cane at the reed's tip, which makes for a penetrating tone. It is compatible with a wide variety of baroque bassoons. This reed, if completely dry, must be soaked for about 20 minutes in warm water before use, and must be kept damp for optimal response.
The Eichentopf baroque reed (center) is recommended for Eichentopf, Stanesby, and similar reproductions. The long blades help keep the pitch down on low notes, even while the high register is strong all the way to a'. The Prudent baroque reed (right) is recommended for later designs like the Prudent reproduction, and for any instrument with a longish bocal.
