As a musician, you
know how hard and time consuming traditional reed
making can be. We became dissatisfied with the results
of traditional scraping and so designed a product
which makes this work easier and quicker for every
bassoon and oboe player. The design process took
time, but we are pleased with the results.
The patented Light Plaque helps
the way you work on reeds.
A strong, luminous plaque made out of polycarbonate
plastic is placed into the
reed, and the light, which shines through the plaque,
shines up through the cane. The light inside of the
reed shows you where to scrape, and makes this process
much easier than with a convention plaque. As result,
the reed is smoother and is adjusted with much less
effort. This leaves you with a lot more time to play
As a light source we use a Photon
Freedom (made in
the USA) lamp which allows you to change the
intensity of the light to compliment the type of
cane you have chosen.
