 Decent bassoon reeds
Author: WoodwindOz

Hi everyone,

I have skipped over from the Oboe Bboard temporarily... :) Which is the story of my semester!

I will be playing bassoon in two bands this semester. I have a brand new Fox 240 to play on. I have a couple of reeds that one of the doctoral students made me last semester, but with the amount of playing I am going to be doing, they aren't going to last too long (and she is no longer an option).

I am originally from Australia, and we had a regular private supplier of good reeds there. I have a case storage in Oz.

Over here, I am at a loss. I am going to be joining the bassoon studio to learn the art of reed making (I can already adjust bassoon reeds and I am a decent oboe reed maker), but in the meantime (or if I turn out to be not so good at making reeds) I need a supplier of good handmade reeds, preferably not too expensive (student budget) and without a time lag between ordering and receiving.

I am a doubler, I have played bassoon in the past and I play a lot of oboe and clarinet. I have pretty strong chops. I'm going to be playing 1st and 2nd in the respective bands, so an all-around reed is best.

Thanks for your help!
