Brundage bassoon reeds are entirely hand made in small batches over the course of several weeks. Traditional hand operated machines and hand finishing tools are the only methods employed. The cane is hand selected for intermediate hardness and flexibility leading to wonderful consistency. The shape is unique and most closely associated with shapes from Knochenhauer, Herzberg, and Rieger.
In the final stages, they are hand scraped and extensively adjusted to ensure a beautiful, stable, and flexible tone. They are smoothly finished in shrink wrapping. Colors vary.
