Lgre bassoon reeds have all the depth and warmth that elite players demand. Made from specially prepared synthetic material, they deliver all the advantages of a traditional Lgre reed; consistency, durability and an instant response.MaterialsLgre reeds are made from polypropylene, which is approved by the FDA for use in direct food contact applications.ProcessLgre bassoon reeds are cut from Lgres own unique polymer on 3-axis, computer-controlled precision cutting machines. Lgre can also measure their reeds with extreme precision using computer-controlled equipment, allowing a very tight quality control.The reeds are cut in halves using customized profiles based on a mathematical description of a reed profile rather than a model or prototype. The halves are then bonded together again using a digitally controlled system. The result is a reed that is perfectly balanced in both blades, and has just the right combination of tip thickness, heart, and flexibility.
