Tropical Contrabassoon Reeds


The Tropical Contrabassoon Reeds utilize the combination of the most precise machinery to process the cane and the expertise of a professional bassoonist. Every step of the reed making process receives careful oversight by the maker. As a result, stable intonation, excellent response, and beautiful sound are hallmarks of Tropical Reeds. The contrabassoon reeds use the Rieger K1 shaper with a 34mm tube and a 34-33mm blade.

Special Instructions

Once you receive your reeds, the wires will probably be loose, that is normal and happens when the reed has dried for a few days. They need soaking for 10-15 min before first use so the cane can expand and the wire won't be loose anymore. If the wires are still tight after a 15-minute initial soak, they will need to be tightened so the reed can function optimally.

Every Tropical reed and blank comes in 6 colors: dark green, neon yellow, purple, navy, red, orange, and grey. We can send the colors you want if they are in stock.
