This transparent plastic bassoon plaque has a slightly bellied center with one gently pointed end.
It’s helpful to be able to see right through the blades when reed making. In addition, the plastic, while strong, is gentle on your knife edge, causing less dulling than metal plaques.
The pointed end allows for easy insertion between the blades. The belly helps to maintain the reed shape as you scrape.
You can use this plaque for bassoon or baroque bassoon reeds.
