Topic: Gonzales Cane

Has anyone had experience making oboe reeds with Gonzales Cane? I read mixed reviews on the oboe B Boards. Thanks for the insight.

Re: Gonzales Cane

I haven't had any issues with making reeds with them.  I bought a pound of tube cane back in late 2011 and have had consistently good reeds since then.  My professor has noted that the cane was very consistent as well, with not a lot of clunkers in the batch.
