Ideal for intermediate to advanced players

Starting to learn to make your own bassoon reeds is a good idea once you have learnt the fundamentals of bassoon playing, or if you have already developed an interest in being able to adjust your bassoon reeds. So this bassoon reed making kit will provide you with the specialist bassoon reed making tools you will need and shows you how to make bassoon reeds.

If you are considering attending music college or are currently at one, it is vital that you learn to make your own reeds. Making your own reeds allows you to fully develop without unnecessary obstacles created by not having a reed suited to yourself and your style of playing. Many top bassoonists say that a major part of your practise should be based around reed making and they often spend 6+ hours a week making reeds. So this bassoon reed making kit gives you the starting point from which to work.

Everything you need at great value

This bassoon reed making kit includes everything to make your own bassoon reeds from scratch. The advantage of this kit is that it comes at a great value!

Make reeds suited to you

When you make your own reeds using this bassoon reed making kit, you will gradually develop an understanding of how to make reeds that suit your personal setup and increase the ease at which you can play your instrument. It will also help you to greatly develop your tone quality.
