Student bassoon reeds are suitable for grades 1-5, made from Rimpl cane which are hand shaped using the Rieger 1A tip and are 29mm tube with a 28mm blade. They are profiled and then hand finished so that they help develop a stable intonation across the range of the Bassoon, whilst being responsive enough to help sustain the lower register of the instrument.

The professional reeds are finished to a similar dimension and scrape as the student reeds. These are made with Rimpl cane from Germany, with a Fox 1 tip which is narrower which helps to give the reeds more resistance giving the player a fantastic upper range, essential to advanced players. These reeds are also made with a 29mm tube and 28mm blade but have a rounder tube which helps play with a brighter, mature sound without loosing the ability to play an extensive range of dynamics and maintaining impeccable intonation.
