Free reeds: a resounding success

Today, stops with free reeds, such as the «clarinet» or «bassoon», are experiencing something of a renaissance. However, certain well-known design failings with this kind of reed have been a regularly recurring source of difficulty and their suitability for everyday use has often been questioned. But simply to do without these uniquely wonderful tones for this reason is not in keeping with our philosophy. In the end, through sheer persistence and hard work, we managed to develop a reed that not only sounds extremely beautiful but is also highly functional.
