Sakura Bassoon Reeds & Reed Blanks


The Sakura reed provides a player with subtlety and grace - much like its namesake. Both reeds and blanks are handmade and play tested with attention to detail. Plus, each reed receives individual treatment. As a reuslt, they each play through the entire range of the bassoon with good response and beautiful tone.

The shape allows for effective soloistic playing in the tenor range without sacrificing the resonance in the low register. The unique "side-wire" configuration of the first wire evens the blades, so that the reed does not favor one side greatly over the other.

As with all reeds, if the first wire is loose, try soaking the reed before making changes. This construction intends the wire to be secure, but does have wiggle room even when soaked. This allows for greater vibrance and easier response.
