The Rimpl 3 'Danzi' bassoon reed is in the style of a Danzi Italian reed. Although this reed is the same overall length as the other reeds in the Rimpl range, this Danzi-style reed has a longer overall blade length and shorter shaft.
It has a resonant, round sound.
Dark red binding with a blade tip width of 15mm and a throat diameter of 9.1mm.
This reed is available in standard and soft versions. The soft reed is made specially for Double Reed Ltd., and will benefit those who play less often as you will get less tired on softer reeds, and is also good if you like to play with a looser embouchure. The sound is slightly quieter, but also easier to control.
The standard reed is for those who play regularly. It gives more projection, a bit more stability and a broader tone quality, but is slightly harder work to play on.
About Rimpl Reeds
Rimpl reeds are precision-made reeds produced in Germany. We have found them to be uniform in build quality and dimensions, making each reed reliable to use. They are fully finished reeds, ready to play straight out of the box. We are confident that if you try a few reeds in this range you will find some you really love.
Rimpl's 1a, 2 and 3 reeds are narrower at the tip and at the throat than the Rieger and Thunemann reeds, giving them a slightly lighter sound.
