Bassoon Reed Ordering & Care
Bassoon reeds have a limited playing life. After that the pitch may start to sag, and the sound quality also deteriorates. It is recommended to rotate at least 3 reeds at a time. Bassoons are beautiful sounding instruments, but cannot perform properly without good reeds.
You may now order bassoon reeds directly through my online store. This gives you selections for shape. Your reeds are usually available for delivery at your students lesson the following week, or mail within 3-7 days. The store is now merged directly into my website for student orders. During COVID reeds are being mailed for no additional cost, or you may pick them up from me.
COVID-19 - My reeds have always been sterilized in 70% isopropyl alcohol before packaging, which is within current CDC guidelines. I am currently doing a 2 step sterilization and have increased the alcohol percentage to 75.5% ethyl alcohol and they are also run through UV sterilization and allowed to air dry for several days.
