Delivery costs will be calculated at checkout

These reeds are handmade by Andrew Burn, professional bassoonist and reed maker in Switzerland.

They are based on the American Norman Herzberg shape. The sound is broad, clear and very stable. They work straight out of the box, starting off medium hard and softening up with playing a little.

Traditional red binding.

Total length: 56.8mm; blade length: 28.5mm; blade width: 15.0mm.

See our Reed Dimensions Comparison Chart for dimensions of all our reeds.

At every stage of the reed-making process time is taken to let the cane settle - the gouged cane ages for at least 3 months before being processed.
