As you can see, the JMG Bassoon reeds are meticulously handmade, and come in 3 different versions to suit all levels of players: Classic, Orchestral, and Soloist. All reeds are 56mm and are made with a Rieger 1A shaper. (Did we mention she uses Jende Reed Knives?) The Classic reeds are made with Medir cane while the Soloist and Orchestral reeds are made with Danzi cane. You can even choose your wrap from a variety of colors!

All JMG Bassoon Reeds are pre-tested and can play right out of the box. The classic reeds are generally softer and easy to adjust. The Soloist reeds are generally harder and have more room for personalization.
