Student reeds are designed for the younger bassoonist still developing their embouchure strength.
Young embouchures don’t have the strength yet to manipulate the reed tip opening to its fullest. These reeds preserve the tonal characteristics of the advanced reeds without concern for the uppermost range of the bassoon.
Made with the same raw materials as the Advanced Reeds. Herzberg shape with the Billy Short profile on Lavoro cane from Barton Cane, the tubes dry for at least two weeks before receiving a Herzberg bevel. 3rd wire is at 4mm from butt, 1st wire is 1mm from the collar, and the 2nd wire is placed 1/4″ below the first wire, at the narrowest part of the shape. Sealed with hot glue.
