Quality bassoon supplies can be expensive, but handmade reeds can be affordable if you know where to look! Store bought reeds are typically made too long and too open, requiring significant adjustments to play with good tone and intonation. This forces most students to contort their embouchure to make a decent sound. Blue Moon Bassoon reeds are fully finished and every reed is tested for response and intonation, ensuring you don't waste money on bad reeds.
