Merz Bassoon Reeds
A very popular handmade professional level reed. Select Medium Soft, Medium, or Medium Hard. Adjustment tips from the reed maker: "Check the wires after soaking the reed for a couple of minutes. Tighten them with a pliers if they are loose. Difficulties in response of the reed can often be remedied by adjusting the tip opening. If the reed is too soft and the tip is closed, use a pliers to gently squeeze the first wire at the sides until the desired tip opening is achieved. Squash the first wire down if the tip is too open and the reed is hard to play. Adjustments to the second wire can also help, remembering that the opposite effect on the tip will result from squeezing or squashing the wire and produce a more focused tone."
