Hi Kymarto,

I see you are into traditional Japanese instruments. Actually, I first thought about using a Hichiriki reed instead of a bassoon reed because of the wide opening for the bore. I also built a Shakuhachi mouthpiece for my sax, but the conical shape and wide bore made it impossible for me to get low tones (flutes are usually inverted conical or cylindrical).

Best,

Jonas

Here is a video with a duduk (double reed) adapted to the soprano saxophone playing in a trio with my pocket didgeridoo and the saxophone played on the neck as flute:

Amazing... (the music is too)

also the NEY , side blown flute technique on soprano!

Do you have any close up picture of the adaptation of the the Duduk reeds?

Dis you just insert a double reed in the soprano, have you ever tried to use a duduk double reed on tenor or alto?

Funny that you ask. I just finished a video yesterday on adapting the duduk reed to the soprano saxophone:


In the video, there is an unhindered close up of the adapter 5 seconds from the start. It is also described in my book: Hyperspecializing in Saxophone. The video uses a slightly modified technique, which works better for me. In the beginning of the video, there is also a short sound comparison between the duduk-reed modified sax and a traditional duduk.

I hope you find the information useful,

Jonas
