This kit includes 6 removable mandrels, matching handle and matching base for professional results.
Work your bassoon reed, remove the reed and pin from the handle and place it in the matching base to dry while you go on to the next one. The pins are made to fit the comfortable hardwood handle which is fluted to reduce rolling. Brass hardware ensures long life and accuracy.
