Yes, it worked well for a little while but like synthetic sax reeds, when it died it went suddenly and then quacked like a duck.
Bassoon? Fox Renard. The ones you mentioned I believe are synthetic sax reed makers...I don't think they make bassoon ones.sod9728 said:So which brands?
The only one I know about is Fibracane/Fibracell.
I usually take the opposite view--that a beginner should start on very standard equipment (i.e. ordinary cane reeds) before experimenting with novelties (i.e. plastic reeds).sod9728 said:I'm just thinking that they might be good for a beginner (me) who doesn't have much experience with the bassoon, and just wants to be able to play without the reed dying.
