 Re: Gougers and thickness/ width of reed

You will spend the money either way....throw out cane that's the wrong diameter from tubes, or buy from Capitol Cane...which way will save you time?

I don't gouge my own cane any more...I use Capital's gouged cane and make tremendous reeds.

Simonsky, I echo Veggie's advice. If you have not shaped your own cane before, start with that before you buy a gouger. That way, you find a shape you like, THEN you figure out what diameter gouged cane you like best with it, THEN you buy the gouger that gouges that diameter.

You're setting yourself up for heartbreak and frustration if you dive in the deep end with both shaping and gouging.
