Medir bassoon cane gouged, shaped, and profiled by Medir. Our only Spanish cane. Has a nicely cut collar in the profile. Has a "goblet" style shape in the blade area.

Although I've found a number of good bassoon reeds available (many from MMI) I decided to take a crack at making my own even though I no longer have the array of tools that I once owned. I tried several brands of GSP cane and by far and away the Medir is my favorite. It makes very responsive, easy to control reeds that have a clear and pleasing tone in all registers. The profile leaves some finishing to do but it isn't forbiddingly heavy. Top grades for this outstanding cane.
