King bassoon reeds are made with select reserve Spanish cane that has been gouged to 1.25 mm with an almost concentric gouge.
They are hand made using a Fox PK1 shaper. The tip is custom profiled on a Rimpl tip profiler.
In the finishing stages the maker plays and adjusts each reed to ensure they have a stable intonation, flexible tone, and superb color. They are medium in strength and ready to play.
