KGE Standard Bassoon Reed

The KGE Standard bassoon reed has a good depth of sound.  It is responsive, particularly in the middle and lower range of the bassoon.  It provides sound tone quality and is flexible and free blowing.

KGE Standard Bassoon reeds were selected for their intonation, articulation, tone and the quality of their finish.  The Standard reeds are part of KGE's premium range.  They use the same quality cane as all KGE reeds; the difference with the premium range of reeds is the higher density of the cane which makes the reed more resistant.  Because of this, these reeds deserve a good soak to get them started and do require some playing in.  A popular, long lasting and stable reed.

About KGE Reeds?

In 1988 Ke-Xun began selling reeds to Howarth to support his oboe studies.  In 1989 Ke-Xun moved to Australia, and while continuing his oboe studies, he taught oboe reed making at the Queensland Conservatory of Music.  Eventually the demand for Ke-Xun's reeds increased dramatically and he decided to become a full time oboe reed maker.

It has been previously accepted that hand-made reeds are better quality than those made by machine, however, since Ke-Xun has developed his method he is now challenging this view.  Ke-Xun is now certain that his machine made reeds are a superior quality with greater accuracy and consistency than his own hand-made reeds.  His method is based on lengthy research and his experience as an oboist, reed maker and now also as an engineer.
