Fox Bassoon Straight Shapers


Fox Straight Shapers come in a large variety of specifications. We offer the standard Fox #1, #2, #3, and K shapes. For custom shapes, we stock SVH (Sakakeeny Van Hoesen), ST2 (Stees 2), and T2 (Tropman 2). The Tropman 2 shape is very similar to Rieger 1a.

Fox makes a huge range of straight shapers. If you would like to custom order a shape not listed, please call us at 1-800-926-5587 to work out the details of that purchase. Pricing may vary for special order shapes. Contrabassoon shapers also available upon request.

Straight shapers work best with razor blades. Single-edge blades or hobby knife blades deliver the best results, but use the tool that works best for you. Always lean the shaper against a stationary surface when shaping, and watch your fingers. Cut away from your body as much as possible. Some reed makers use sandpaper to smooth the edges of a piece of shaped cane. Do not sand the cane while held in the shaper, this will change the shape.
