My name is Martin Baxter and I am an ex-army bassoonist( the British army) after which I became a woodwind teacher for Cumbria County Music service ( I had also played clarinet and sax in my army days) and a freelance player, mostly in the theatre. I have also played oboe and flute. As I have got older I find my embouchure has bacome less flexible and I avoid the oboe.
I later took up the contra. I;m now retired but still play chamber music with friends, and occasionally some jazz and folk. I play on a pre-war Adler with a Heckel 3C crook; for theatre work I used a Southern Brass 0HU and latterly a Huller 4. I used to use Cecil James' excellent reeds, but since his death make my own, which are just about playable. My Contra is a Gebr. Monnig, on which my own reeds work fairly well.
Next?
