HurryCane Reeds offers two standard bassoon reeds. I hand-make all of our bassoon reeds, and test them myself to ensure that every reed we sell is of the highest quality. All our bassoon reeds are sealed with all-natural beeswax (color will vary). I prefer to use medium-hard or harder cane for the reeds I make.
Currently using: Gonzales cane (hard cane, 24mm diameter, 1.32 mm gouge), processed on Reeds n’ Stuff pre-gouger, Rieger gouger, and MD Reeds Products profiler. Any of our bassoon reeds can be prepared using Rigotti cane (medium hard) available upon request.
Student Bassoon Reed $21 USD ($26 CAD)
Designed for the beginning bassoon player (but appropriate for all!), this reed offers easy response and control, while providing stability through the full range of the instrument. This reed is ideal for a beginning student, as its easy response will help the student learn to use a relaxed embouchure and focus on maintaining steady air support. This reed is shaped with the Edmund Nielsen #2 shape.
Soloist Bassoon Reed $30 USD ($36 CAD)
The Soloist Bassoon Reed is a powerful reed designed for projection, broad dynamic range, and quick response. It is ideally suited for solo performance and orchestral playing. This reed is shaped with the MD Reeds #2A shape.
