Reeds.

A reed is a thin strip of material which vibrates with air to produce a sound on a musical instrument. Musical instruments may be classified according to the type and number of reeds used. A single reed is required to play a Clarinet or a Saxophone, whereas Oboes, Bassoons and English Horns require Double Reeds.

The reeds of most woodwind instruments are made from Arundo donax ("Giant cane"), but it can also be manufactured from synthetic materials or a mix of the two. Some of the best makers include Vandoren, Rico-D’Addario, Selmer, Rigotti, Marca, Gonzalez, Fibracell, Bari, Forestone and Plasticover. You’ll be able to find all of these on our website.

All makers, strengths, and instruments can be found in our online shop, sold by the piece or in different sizes of packs and boxes. This way, you'll be able to purchase a single reed to try at home before buying several of them, saving you time and delivery fees.

How a reed is made.

Only an experienced professional can select the best cane with the naked eye. The cane is then stripped of its leaves and branches, and cut at a height 6.5-8 feet, only the lower portion being used for the manufacture of reeds. Once the cane is cut, it must lay out and dry in direct sunlight for about a month. The cane is rotated regularly to ensure proper and complete drying. Once at the factory, the cane is taken to the cutting department where it is cut into tubes. The tubes are graded by diameter and wall density. These are then cut into splits which are transformed into reed blanks. The blanks are tapered and profiled using blades or CNC machines into reeds. After the reeds are completed, they are taken to a machine that grades them for strength. Meticulous quality control is required to make the best reed possible. This is how the cane, mythical plant celebrated in the Bible and Ancient Egypt, is tamed by the maker and musician, without ever disrespecting its origin and natural quality.

Uses.

A reed will constantly keep evolving according to its environment, the temperature and especially humidity. You’ll have to be careful when choosing your reed, since you could get different results depending on the place where you’ll be using it, wether it's outdoors, in a concert hall or in a recording studio.

Modernity.

Recently, many makers have started developing synthetic reeds, which has its advantages and disadvantages. The best part about synthetic reeds is that they are not affected by temperature or humidity. They are much more constant in their sound and will last much longer than cane reeds.
