Synthetic bassoon reed

Amazing technology. Reproduces the timbre of the double reed without the muss and fuss of what was previously a complex creative process, akin to creating flies for fly fishing. An art form to say the least, but not for the faint hearted or the uncommitted.

I’m a long time Band Bassoonist (60+years). I’ve always made my own reeds. Quality is always a problem, since I make so few and make them so infrequently. I am looking for consistency with the Lehrer reed. So far it’s working. I did have to buy a diamond reamer and enlarge the butt end a lot to mount it on a Heckel bocal. And I still can’t play very soft. But I’m glad I made the purchase.
