REEDS FOR BASS DULCIAN (CURTAL)

The short-scrape dulcian reed minimizes timbre differences on cross-fingered notes. It has the energy to project in dance or choral music but also has the finesse to play continuo parts in chamber music.
The standard scrape bass dulcian reed is designed for instruments whose crook is approximately 8.25 inches (21 cm) long. It responds easily up to g' or g'# and delivers a robust yet controllable tone.
