earthwindandbassoon asked: How did you make your reed art from your graveyard reeds??? It's amazing and I'd like to make my own! :)
AWW HI! I use reed wire (22 gauge brass wire?) and Duco cement also used in reedmaking. If you don’t make your own reeds, it’s essentially a normal clear-drying cement. It takes patience! But make really cute flowers with bassoon, oboe, and english horn reeds as well :3 maybe I’ll take some photos of them!
starinside asked: What Reeds do you most like buying?
I haven’t bought reeds for a few years, however, I highly recommend Edmund Nielsen reeds, the white ones are pretty nice! They work very well without having to be “edited” much. Also, gobassoon.com has reeds that seem to work well for some of my classmates! Another really good idea is buying reeds from a member of a major orchestra near you. They can be pricey, but if you need a really good reed for an audition it’s definitely worth the price. Best of luck!
