Ideal for beginners - grade 2 - 5

It has many features which allow you to improve your technique and musicality without being held back by using heavier reeds. They are also hand-made in the UK by an experienced professional bassoonist and bassoon reed maker.
Warm tone & easy to play
The medium strength of our academy bassoon reed helps you to develop a free and open embouchure, which later in your development will make creating a warm singing tone on the bassoon much simpler. It will also allow you to play for longer sessions, as it does not wear out your embouchure as quickly.
Durable, adjustable & good value
Our excellent value Academy Bassoon Reed's thicker tip helps to avoid accidental damage! It has also been designed so that your teacher can easily make slight adjustments to the reed to suit you and your playing. The reed is bound in an attractive thread binding.
