Reed Making

My reeds are hand made from start to finish. Tube cane is carefully selected, split, pre-gouged, gouged in the Innoledy gouger, shaped, tied, and scraped by me. Reeds are worked on over the course of several days to give the cane a chance to settle in and " think about becoming a reed." Turn around time can be up to 2-3 weeks. Hand Crafting a reed cannot be rushed if a quality finished reed is desired.
